Students will have daily 15 minute DEAR (drop everything and read time) each day. We also will be having the AR challenge of getting 1500 points in 2 weeks (by March 30th). If we make our goal, Mr. Hicks will be on the receiving end of a puppy Dog kiss in front of all students!
This year at St. Joe’s we will be celebrating World Down Syndrome Day. The date of the event is March 21 (3/21). The date is significant because it represents the triplication of the 21st chromosome which is what causes Down Syndrome. The day also falls during our Right to Read Week and will fit in nicely with our planned activities.
The theme for WDSD is #Lotsofsocks. For a $1.00 donation, students/staff can wear crazy socks on Wednesday. The proceeds will go to the Down Syndrome Association. For many families that are blessed with children with Down Syndrome, the Down Syndrome Association often supports these families through many different resources.
We will distribute cookies that will also represent the day. Blue and yellow icing which are the colors for Down Syndrome. The cookies are nut free and processed in a nut free environment. Our Right to Read Week kick off will be March 19th, Monday and there will be a brief presentation to discuss the WDSD activities. We will also show a brief video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5M--xOyGUX4
