This was a busy week at SLAS and it was nothing but a successful mix of fun and reading. We had our Dr. Seuss celebration, Literacy Week, and spirit week. In elementary and early years, students each day celebrated literacy with an activity related to Dr. Seuss. If you have not heard of Dr. Seuss, he was an American author who was very concerned with the literary of children. Because of this, he began writing books that were fun and creative in order to engage the interest of children in reading.
Secondary students have also been participating in a school wide reading campaign to promote literacy by reading at least 20 minutes every day during their 2 block class. SLAS faculty and staff are also participating and contributing to the literacy push. SLAS staff would like to promote and demonstrate the importance of being literate to our students. We can all find success through literacy. For this week, the entire school has read an amazing 63, 383 minutes!
