Dear Parents and Families, This is The Love of Reading Week! We have some fun things planned at Simis in honor of Dr. Suess' birthday. Monday - wear red. Tuesday - wear a shirt someone can read. Wednesday - time to dress up as your favorite book character! Thursday - wear stripes. Friday - bring in your favorite book! Friday is an important day for us, because we are buddying up with a kindergarden class so we can read OUR favorite book to them! So please remember to bring a book to school on Friday, so we can read to our little friends!
