I LOVE TO READ MONTH ~  I LOVE TO READ DRESS-UP DAYS
February is I Love to Read month and a time to celebrate all the fabulous readers we have at Highwood School.  As part of the celebration during February, there will be an I Love to Read dress-up day every Wednesday.  Students in grades Pre-K-12 are encouraged to participate in the dress-up days. The dress-up day schedule is as follows:
        Wednesday, February 22  Llama, Llama Red Pajama (Wear pajamas.)                                                

HEART READING
In addition to I Love to Read dress-up days, high school and middle school students will partner with elementary students twice during the third quarter to read together for H.E.A.R.T. Reading.... Hold Everything And Read Together.  Stop by and check out H.E.A.R.T. Reading on Wednesday, March 15, at 2:00 P.M. 

READ AROUND THE WORLD SUPERINTENDENT CHALLENGE
Mrs. Suberg discovered early on in the Read Around the World Challenge that the Highwood Elementary students need a bigger challenge than reading 24,901 pages in nine weeks.  They truly are READING ROCK STARS!  We are at the mid-point of the third quarter, and the elementary students have already made their way around the world one time!  Unbelievable!  Consequently, Mrs. Suberg challenged them to a second trip around the world.  If the students read another 24,901 pages by the end of the quarter, she agreed to dye her hair a variety of bright colors for several days.


ANCIENT CHINA COMES TO HIGHWOOD
On March 8, at 7:00 P.M., the Highwood Coliseum will be transformed into Imperial China! Our K-8th grade students have been working hard on a musical version of the Hans Christian Andersen fable The Nightingale. This beloved story is set in Han Dynasty China and explores themes of friendship and loyalty. Mr. Wilson and Ms. Killeen are working together with our
students in the music and choreography of this enchanting tale to bring it to life. Thank you to all who have generously loaned us costume and prop items! We are in need of a satin bathrobe or pajamas (size small or adult) and mandarin collar shirts or jackets (size small or adult). If you have a costume you can loan, please contact Gretchen Wilson at 733-6311 or gretchmanandrob@gmail.com.  Be sure to celebrate reading this month by sharing this revered story with your student. It is available in libraries or online in Han Christian Andersen collections. As a family you can watch any of the many versions of this classic tale  on DVD or youtube.
