Mrs. Birdsill is encouraging all Northwood students to work their brains this summer by reading. Our brains are one of the most important muscles we have and they need to stay in shape so we can start off the upcoming school year right. Most public libraries, including the Minong Public Library, have reading programs to help motivate children to read. Check out your local public library for more information.
