March is Reading Month
We are 3 days into our March is Reading month celebrations! A calendar of events was sent home, but if you need another copy, please reach out to office. There are many great activities and ideas for each day in March to emphasize reading. Each week we have a building goal of reaching 15,000 minutes to earn a reward on Fridays. If everyone takes time to participate, we will easily reach this goal!
Each week we focus on a different area of the building to emphasize our behavior expectations. It is appreciated when families take time to discuss what R.O.A.R. (Responsibility, On-Task, Always Safe, Responsible) looks like in the different areas around the building, including the playground, in the hallways, in classrooms, on the bus, in the cafeteria, in the bathrooms, and during assemblies.
The Little Caesars fundraiser was a huge hit, thank you for everyone that purchased items and everyone that helped to organize this event! The funds raised go back to support our students and all of the contributions are greatly appreciated. Our next meeting is scheduled for Thursday, March 19th at 5:15p. Continue to check the Alcona Elementary PTO Facebook page for events and activities as well.
Even with so many schools around the area closed due to illness, we have not had a significant amount of sickness hit our students! Washing and sanitizing hands has been a great way to prevent this from spreading, along with following the appropriate steps if your child is ill. Thank you for taking the extra time and making the extra effort to ensure our kids our healthy! If there are any questions, please call the Tiger Clinic at 989-736-9837.
If there is a book that your child is interested in, but it is not in the library, we can get it for them through our inter-library loan system. We are connected to a state-wide library system and will be able to get most any book within a few days.
Classes visit the library on a weekly basis, so trying new books is a great way to build an excitement of reading!
