Read Across America Week! March 2nd-6th

Every year the National Education Association promotes Read Across America week to help motivate kids to read and experience the joy of reading!


At Sato we are excited for a week of celebrating reading! In the classrooms we are encouraging the following themes as teachers read to students (please feel free to join in at home as well!):


  • Mystery Monday - enjoy a mystery book!
  • Travel Tuesday - explore the world through a book that takes you somewhere you've never been!
  • Whimsical Wednesday - enjoy a fantasy book full of whimsy and wonder
  • Tall Tale Thursday - Fairy tales, mythology and lore, oh my!


We will culminate this week long celebration with our second annual Parad of Books! See below for details!!
