    Read Across America Teachers and students had so much fun celebrating Read Across America this week. One special author, Dr. Seuss, still connects with children years after he has passed. His words of acceptance

    and love for others and self relate to people of all ages. We honored his contribution towards reading by dressing up in crazy clothes

    based on books he wrote.

    Lent Begins After a day of indulgence, students and staff began their journey into Lent. On Ash Wednesday, I asked students what they chose to sacrifice. We can all ask ourselves how will we grow closer to God this Lenten season.
