Dear St. Mary’s Families,
Next week will be a very busy and fun week for us all at St. Mary’s. We will be celebrating our love of reading during Read Across America Week, March 2nd – March 6th. Each class at St. Mary’s, from our youngest students in Early Learners to our oldest students in 5th grade, will be celebrating the fun with lots of reading and activities in their classrooms. To help celebrate the week, we are having themed days each day inspired by Dr. Seuss’s books. Here is the schedule for the week:

Monday: “Fox in Socks Day” – Wear silly or mismatched socks

Tuesday: “One fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish” – Wear red or blue clothing

Wednesday: “Dr. Seuss’s Sleep Book” – Wear your pajamas and bring a stuffed animal you can read to (pajamas should be modest in design)

Thursday: “Oh The Places You’ll Go Day” – Wear a college jersey, t-shirt, or sweatshirt

Friday: “The Cat in the Hat Day” – Wear your favorite hat and lots of red and white. Get ready for a day full of reading!Students may be out of dress code Monday – Thursday during the week if they participate in the day’s theme. If a student does not choose to participate in a day’s theme, they must be in school uniform. On Friday, students need to come dressed in school uniform bottoms for Mass, but they can wear any red or white shirt, it does not have to be a uniform shirt. Students will leave their hats and/or any other accessories in the classroom that might be distracting in church before heading to Mass.
This will be a fun week filled with reading fun! If you would like to be a guest reader in your child’s class, please contact your child’s teacher in advance to make arrangements.

Thank you and happy reading!
