March is Reading Month!
Welcome to March is Reading Month!
All across the country, schools will be celebrating March is Reading Month. Monday, March 2nd is Dr. Seuss’s birthday, which is commemorated as Read Across America Day. Honey Creek’s reading celebration will be a Read-In on Friday, March 6, from 10AM-11AM. Honey Creek students, High Point students, and kids from Gretchen’s House will all be part of a kick-off event in the gym and then have time for reading. We are excited for this opportunity for the schools to collaborate.
The Honey Creek/High Point Literacy Committee (yes, it is a new committee!) put together the March calendar (see below) to provide some other reading inspiration for students and families. It has some optional ideas, so choose the ones that work for your family.
We are happy to share the news that ALL Honey Creek students qualify for a free Ann Arbor Library card even if they don’t live in Ann Arbor. You can print the application http://www.aadl.org/files/MinorsLcardappREV02-14.pdf and take it to any branch.
Students need to show proof (report card) that they attend Honey Creek. The adults signing will need to show photo identification.
