Dear Sacred Heart Families,
There are so many wonderful things happening at Sacred Heart next month. It is March is Reading Month. Wow, we are ready to meet the goal of reading 4,000 books as a school. At the beginning of the school year, we challenged the students to read 20 minutes per night. The teachers have each set up an incentive program for the students to encourage the daily habit of reading so the students can develop a high level of academic success.
The NWEA testing results are in and, together, we have raised our scores in Reading across the board. And, not just by a little….by quite a bit. What wonderful news for us all! Please keep encouraging your child to read as we move into March.
We have attached a calendar to help keep track of the events in March. You will notice that there is never a dull moment.
Each classroom is presenting a city in Michigan and is going to teach the rest of the school about that city. Those are marked on the calendar as destination days. We are all excited to learn more about our beautiful state.
We also have mystery readers coming to our school to read to us. Among the readers are a state representative, a famous book character and the best priest ever!
We also invite you to attend the Corned Beef Dinner, The Featherless Bingo, Stella Luna @ the Croswell in Adrian and Reading Under the Stars.
If we reach our goal, the students will receive a Carnival in the Gym where they can throw pies at the teachers, principal and staff.
We want to make this the best March is Reading Month Ever. The kids earned it.
Anne Atkin, principal
