Tis the Season to Be Reading

Macdonough School students and staff celebrated “TIS THE SEASON TO BE READING DAY” with special guest readers / community leaders today.

Each classroom welcomed a guest reader / community leader for a read aloud.  Then the entire school assembled in the gymnasium for a celebration to include a reading of Governor M. Jodi Rell’s formal proclamation of December 16th, 2010 as “Tis the Season to be Reading” day statewide, a read aloud of Our Children Can Soar, written by Michelle Cook; and a new book giveaway for every child at the school.

Children were reminded that although many associate this time of year with holidays and gifts, it's alway the season for reading at Macdonough School!
