AUTISM AWARENESS DRESS DOWN DAY – Students will be able to dress down on Wednesday, April 3 for a $2 charge. All money will benefit Liv with Autism, a local non-profit organization. Liv with Autism helps promote Autism Awareness and enhance the lives of people with Autism. This fundraiser was organized by sixth grader Elizabeth Kravitz. To participate, put $2 in an envelope marked “Autism Dress Down” and hand it in to your homeroom teacher. This dress down day is subject to our normal dress-down day rules, which are in the student-parent handbook.
RACE FOR COUGARS
Race for Cougars will take place on Monday, April 8. This is a fun day for all, but is also an important fundraiser. There is still time to have neighbors or relatives to send in donations. Proceeds will be used for the technology program.
READ THE MOST FROM COAST TO COAST
Mrs. Theresa Sabetta, librarian, announces that on March 1, 58 students at Wyoming Area Catholic School engaged in valuable reading practice and took part in setting a new national record in “Read The Most From Coast to Coast.” These students contributed to a new national record of 4,409,622 Accelerated Reader Quizzes passed in one day.
“Read The Most From Coast to Coast” is a national Renaissance Learning event that began last school year and challenges students to break the record for the number of Accelerated Reader quizzes taken in one day. As part of this event, the Web-based program tracked quizzes passed nationwide and shared results in real time with an online quiz counter.
“Read The Most From Coast to Coast” enabled students to take part in a shared reading adventure while becoming better readers. Seeing a real-time progress toward the goal was fun for students and they enjoyed being part of a national effort. They were really excited when they topped last year’s quiz-taking record.
All students who participated in this nationwide challenge received a Certificate of Participation and an official bookmark.
