Yesterday was Read Across America Day! Betsy Ross classes participated in fun reading activities, from making Cat in the Hat hats with new buddies to exploring diverse authors to special flashlight books that reveal hidden illustration details. What a fun way to learn!
Read Across America Week is in full swing in our primary buildings. Check out some picture from Garfield students on Silly book/story Day- Students wore a silly hat or hair style to match the stories.
February 28th was Rare Disease Awareness Day and Betsy Ross students and staff were celebrating all the strong, brave "unicorns" out there thriving and teaching us everyday!
Forest Park Middle School held their Black History Month Assembly where hometown author, John Rice, shared how he helped get a priceless piece of art that was underappreciated in the Village of Forest Park to the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C.

Congratulations to Field-Stevenson's 4th grade class (Mrs. Uhlmann's ) who brought in 277 non-perishable food items for the Super Bowl or "Soup-er" Bowl.

D91 celebrates women from all over the world this Women’s History Month. Women’s History Month has been celebrated annually since the 1980s. It is dedicated to reflecting on the often-overlooked contributions of women to United States history. This year's theme is "Women Providing Healing, Promoting Hope." This theme is "both a tribute to the ceaseless work of caregivers and frontline workers during this ongoing pandemic and also a recognition of the thousands of ways that women of all cultures have provided both healing and hope throughout history."
5th graders at Grant-White created monochromatic paintings in art class today!
