Dear Saranac Elementary Families, March has officially arrived which means our school will put the focus on Reading! Every March we pick a theme that we plan multiple activities around, this year our theme is, “Books Bring Us Together!” The most important thing you can do to support your child is to help them read! It doesn’t matter what grade level your child is in, there is always something you can help them do. Below are a few of the activities that we will have taking place in the school: D.E.A.R. Time Through the month we will play the song, “Come Together” When that song plays, we Drop Everything And Read. Dress Up Days All dress-up days will be on Wednesdays March 2 - Good Night Moon, PJ DAY March 9 - Fox in Socks, Crazy Sock Day March 16 - Cat in the Hat Day, Hat Day March 23 - Rainbow Fish Day, grade levels will dress as a color.
