March Message From Principal Maguire
Dear Country School Families,
During the month of March, we celebrate many wonderful things and we have lots to look forward to at Country School! On March 1st, we kick off "Music in Our Schools" month with our String Fling. Then on March 8th, we continue this wonderful celebration with our Spring Sing. We hope you can join us for both beautiful performances.
We will also celebrate "Read Across America Day" on Dr. Suess's birthday this Thursday, March 2nd. In honor of this celebration, students are invited to wear a crazy hat to school. We will also participate in a whole school "Drop Everything and Read" event. During this event, the whole school will line the halls and sit to read a favorite book for a few minutes. A fun way to promote independent reading!
Next week, March 6-10, we will be recognizing World Language Week. To celebrate, parent volunteers will be coming in to share their culture with students. If you would also like to volunteer, please contact Señora Kasanov at email@example.com for more information. Some ideas for sharing are slideshows and/or artifacts from other countries, reading a picture book or singing songs in another language. Through a generous WEEFC grant, a mariachi band will visit on Tuesday. Finally, students will be invited to make posters for the theme of: Languages Transform Individuals into Communities.
We wrap up the month by continuing to celebrate our School Community. Join us on March 28th for a Country School paint night, led by Ms. Lucas and Ms. Lattin! We hope you can join in on some of these wonderful celebrations!
