Celebrate Read Across America and Dr. Seuss’s Birthday at Story School on Friday, March 2nd
Story School will be joining schools nationwide during the week of February 26, 2018 to commemorate Dr. Seuss’s birthday. We would love for you (parents, grandparent or other special relatives) to join us by visiting classrooms K4 through 5th grade, and reading a story to our students during “Guest Reader Day” on Friday March 2nd.
We ask that you bring your love of reading, enthusiasm, and a favorite children’s book to read. No book? No problem! We will have several books available for your reading selection.
If you are interested in being a guest reader, please see Ms. Jones.
Every Day Counts
Help Your Child Succeed in School:
Build the Habit of Good Attendance Early
School success goes hand in hand with good attendance!
DID YOU KNOW?
¨ Even starting in Kindergarten, having too many absences can cause children to fall behind in school
¨ Missing 10 percent of school (about 2 days a month or 18 days a year) makes it harder to learn to read
¨ Students can still fall behind if they miss just a day or two days every few weeks
¨ Arriving late to school disrupts the start of class and can make your child miss important lessons
¨ Absences can affect the entire classroom if the teacher has to slow down learning to help children catch up
¨ Good attendance will help children do well in high school, college, and work

Our staff emphasizes success in reading, mathematics, language arts, science and technology. Story offers many academic enrichment opportunities in a multicultural setting.
