Students and staff are working so hard to finish our year strong! The flu bug has really hit hard and we have a lot of kids and adults that have had to miss school time. It is the final lap of the year and we need to all get healthy and be at our best. Please make sure you do NOT send your child to school that has been sick within the last 24 hours. If they have had to take medicine to not have a fever, they must stay at home until they are fever free without medications. We want them here every minute they can be, but we need them to be healthy first! Thanks
Title I Helpful Hints
Help celebrate Dr. Suess’s birthday by inspiring curiosity and activate imaginations on Read Across America Day, March 2nd. “Dr. Seuss wanted his young readers to be knowledgeable, curious, and thoughtful about the world around them. His titles encourage kids to ask questions, use their imaginations, and seek solutions. In celebrating his birthday, families can honor Dr. Seuss by helping students experience the joys of wonder, possibility, exploration, and discovery.” (NEA’s Read Across America Guide 2015)
Here’s how you can help make reading more fun for the whole family:
Just Do It!---Read, read, read! Visit Nea.org/grants/13154.htm for a list of the top 100 books. We encourage all families to read for a minimum of 20 minutes per night.
Watch---See the movie after reading the book. Talk about the differences with your child: Were any parts missing? Do the characters look like what she imagined? Did she prefer the book or movie? Why?
Surf---Visit Starfall.com and the website for the reading show Between the Lions (Pbskids.org/lions) for fun alphabet and phonics games.
