Read Across America Week at SSJ

This morning we kicked off “Read Across America Week” in great style here at SSJ!! We had a special assembly and our Librarian, Mrs. LaPlante, told us all about “Read Across America.” The students raised their right hand and took a pledge – the “Declaration of Reading Independence.” Then, our coaches, Coach Andy and Coach Keelber, read “Oh the Places You’ll Go” by Dr. Suess. Then it was time for our super special surprise guest – The Arizona Cardinals’ BIG RED!! He came out and got the kids all pumped up – even challenging them to a dance contest!! Our kids at SSJ have got the moves!! smile emoticon Even Sister Raphael and some of her Irish Dancers showed Big Red what they could do and Big Red even joined in with a little jig of his own! Sister Raphael concluded the assembly, encouraging and challenging to the students to READ every chance they get this week!! Thank you – BIG RED – for a fun start to our week!!!
