March is Reading Month

Let’s Celebrate March is Reading Month With Dr. Seuss!

March is an exciting month and a great time for all to grab a book and read! As you know, every year in the month of March, reading is celebrated. It is a time to remind, stress and educate students on the importance of reading. As educators and parents, it is important to take advantage and create opportunities for our children to read, read, and read! Starting young, is the key to successful reading, therefore, it is imperative to begin building a strong foundation as early as possible! One way to inspire our children to love reading is to make it exciting! During “March is Reading Month,” our magnificent team at Lowrey School celebrates March is Reading month by inviting readers to classrooms, decorating doors/building, creating a calendar full of fun activities we can use in our classrooms and more. However, this year we are celebrating “March is Reading Month,” by remembering Dr. Seuss during this wonderful month of enriched reading by decorating our doors with titles of his famous books and reading his amazing books to our students. National March is Reading Month at Lowrey is geared towards motivating and providing opportunities for students to read while having fun during the process and turning our students into book lovers.

What Makes the Blood Moon Red?

Good to know: As with most lunar eclipses, the moon appeared red during the eclipse. The red color is caused by Rayleigh scattering of sunlight through the Earth’s atmosphere, the same effect that causes sunsets to appear red. A blue moon (full blood moon) occurs once every two-and-a-half years. It occurs when there are two full moons in a single month.

Dear Parents and Students,

It’s hard to believe that we are already halfway through the school year! During the month of February, we are conducting our mid-year assessments (NWEA) for all students. These tests will show us how much academic progress your child has made in the areas of Math, Reading, Language Arts, and Science. As well, these tests will guide teachers towards best practices and provide the most constructive learning environment and opportunity for each individual student to grow in their learning. Additionally, this data is often used to help students set goals and understand what they need to learn to achieve their goals. Our testing windows will close at the end of the month.

Parent, I encourage you to have conversations with your children about their testing; how is it going for them, and do they have any questions or concerns. In addition, it would be great if you could encourage your child to engage with some effective educational websites such as; Prep Dog, Khan Academy, Clever, Moby Max, IXL and more! These websites encourage students to play games while strengthening their skills in all subjects. As a team, let’s make learning fun!

Thank you,

Mrs. Ankouni
