COVID19 School Closure Activities

As we continue to be closed, this page will have activities that your child can complete to continue with their reading progress.  This shouldn't take more than 30 minutes daily.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me by email at dgetty@wellsborosd.k12.pa.us or via remind.



****I will be holding office hours Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.  During this time period I will be available to discuss via email any question, comments, or concerns you may have regarding Title 1 reading in a prompt manner.  I will respond within 24 hours outside of the office hours stated above via email 7 days per week. ****


1.  Read Naturally - If there is only one activity that you wish your child to do, please choose Read Naturally.  Use this program at least 3 times per week, completing at least one story per week.  The more it is used, the better.
