We already have an amazing group of readers at Pine Ridge, but we want to help everyone continue to grow as readers. It is important for each of us to set a personal reading goal, and the Reading Rangers program can be one way for readers at every level to accomplish just that.
Please see the attached form for all of the details:
Patricia Polacco has been writing and illustrating children’s books for 30 years!

Complete this form, return it to Pine Ridge with your payment, and we will deliver your books to your child at school.
