We are excited to share with you that this year we are celebrating literacy throughout the month of March.  Our Student Government Advisor, Mrs. Squitiere, and members of the student government are leading the way to provide great opportunities to have fun and focus on many aspects of literacy.

Currently, our students are working to Read to the Moon.  Every two books gets a Moon Sheet (click the link to print additional copies) which will be posted in the hallway.  When the number of “miles” they read for each sheet adds up to the miles to the moon, Mr. Southworth will read from the school roof.
