Read Across America
Sprague students celebrated Read Across America Day this month by reading books from all over the world. Sprague is a school that celebrates a community of students where 45 different languages are spoken in children’s homes,
“It’s a day that celebrates the joy of reading,” said Jacqueline Bever, Multilingual Learner Teacher. “Students are encouraged to find a book they love to read including comic books, fiction books, non-fiction books, read alouds, and chapter books. There are books about animals, sports, and characters that remind us of ourselves,” Mrs. Bever said.
Read Across America Day kicks off Sprague’s Global Book Club month, where students explore stories about various countries and animals that come from those regions, she said.
Next week Sprague will kick off a Kindness Challenge with an assembly that will teach students about acts of service and ways to be kind. Students are encouraged to complete kind deeds at home, then turn into their teacher kindness sheets that highlight their good deeds. The teachers will create kindness links of the good deeds that will be displayed throughout the school.
Please wash snow pants, coats, gloves, and all other winter wear that students bring home. With the warm weather comes muddy clothing that needs cleaning.
Please check the school's lost and found bins for items your child may be missing. All lost and found items will be donated the Friday before Spring Break.
Celebrating Art is having a Spring Art Contest and the deadline is Thursday, April 7. Submit your student's entry online at www.celebratingart.com. Each student in grades K-12 may submit one piece of art.
