It was a shortened week due to the Mid-Winter Break, but that didn't stop us from packing in a lot of great opportunities for our Wolves. The warm weather even allowed our students to go outside without a jacket with temperatures over 60 degrees in the month of February. We all hope this weather stays around, but it is Michigan. Let's enjoy the moment.
The lesson this month focused on Rule #5 on the Energy Bus - "Enjoy the ride!" With March is Reading Month just around the corner, the Wass Character Education Team put a twist on this by stating, "Enjoy the ride with a good book!" The students learned that our goal at Wass is to promote a love of reading all year round. We will emphasize this during March by asking students to drop everything and read a book for fun. We are literally going to do this EVERYDAY in March. Students and staff will hear a song played over the sound system and that is the sign to DROP EVERYTHING AND ENJOY READING! Each student will be given a READING CINCH SACK to carry a book or two that they can enjoy reading anywhere they go in the month of March. Thanks to our PTO for providing this resource for all of our students.
We will kick-off March is Reading Month with a school-wide Read-In on March 1st to start the day. Every member of our school will come together in the cafeteria and gym to ENJOY THE RIDE WITH A GOOD BOOK for 30 minutes. Students will bring their Wass reading cinch sacks as we further our love of reading for enjoyment. I can't wait to read with approximately 500 students and staff.
