March is Reading Month
In March, Sacred Heart School celebrates reading. Our theme this year is “Around the World with a Good Book.” The teachers have all chosen a country to represent during the month. Each class will research and collaborate to create a fun way to present the country to the whole school. The students will have the chance to visit each classroom and learn about the culture and history of the country. This year the teachers have chosen Japan, Mexico, Russia, Ireland and Germany.
We have also challenged the students to read 2,000 books during the month. It is always a race to the end to see if we can reach the goal. I f the students are able to read 2,000 books by the end of March, they will win a Beach Party with games, snacks and music the Friday before Spring Break. Also, the class that reads the most books will win an ice cream party and a jean/jersey day. Competition can get pretty fierce!
To keep us motivated to read, we have added Buddy Reading, Mystery Readers, Bowling, A Visit from an Alligator Sanctuary, Crazy Sock Day and a Crazy Hair Day to our March calendar.
March is always a fun month at Sacred Heart School. We are challenging our minds to explore a world far beyond our own experience with great books. We plan many special events to keep us pushing through the end of winter into the spring, and we are preparing for the celebration of Easter. It is busy and we love it.
Sacred Heart School is the best gift you can give your child!
