March is Reading Month!

Principal Jon Washburn, dressed as The Cat in the Hat from the Dr. Seuss book, helped serve up the green eggs and ham this week. He reminded students it's important to read every day.
During the month students will have a variety of fun activities to encourage reading. There will be a crazy wacky dress-up day, a day to wear a favorite color to school, and a day to dress up like a favorite book character.
March 21 will be the annual Literacy Night at McFall. Families are invited to attend the fun and games and meet guest children's author Denise Brennan-Nelson.
Students are also encouraged to read at home - not just at school. A special March is Reading Month calendar encourages students to put away the video games on March 16 and read! Another weekend event suggests reading a recipe and making something new.
