Today our students started taking their state assessments, M-STEP. They are working hard to "Finish Strong" - giving extra effort to make it through to the end, which is our Capturing Kids' Heart theme for the month of April. We made sure here at school we provided the best testing environment for them and reminded them how much we believe in them. Each student received a Perseverance Bracelet and a Stick With It Note, with positive affirmation sticker. Thank you to families for making sure your student had a good night sleep and thank you to those who have donated healthy snacks to classrooms. We appreciate you all!

That's a wrap on a fantastic Reading Month! Students and families enjoyed reading Dog Days during March for our One District One Book family/community engagement focus. We welcomed Career Guest Readers, many Mystery Guest Readers, and even a 3rd grade visit with author of Turtle of Michigan, Naomi Shihab Nye. We gave away about 250 prizes today to celebrate the end of reading month and to thank/recognize students who participated in our One District, One Book initiative. And throughout the month we have another 250 prizes away to students for classroom winners of the daily Reading Month trivia. Many students enjoyed reading a book today in their classroom all cozy in their pjs with a blanket. It was a great way to celebrate reading month as we head into spring break. Thank you families & students for your participation! Keep reading.

One District, One Book - March is Reading Month March is Reading Month, once again all of our district elementary schools are participating in One District, One Book! This year we are reading Dog Days by Karen English. Your Fancher Falcon brought home their own copy of the chapter book to keep last Friday, an informational letter, and the reading month calendar. Tonight we want all families & students to read Chapter 1, families can check out our guest reader tonight on the Fancher Facebook at 6pm. During school students will participate in weekly trivia, dress up days, and take part in the home activities noted on the calendar and have chances to win prizes. There will be guest readers every Monday & Wednesday each week and we will post those videos to our Fancher Elementary Facebook and our Reading Month Google Classroom all students will join. This week during library class students are working on Pet Posters to prep for our Parade of Pets later this month. We want students to bring in a picture of their pet or a picture of a dream pet to glue & tape to their poster. This could be an actual picture, a copy, a magazine cut out or drawing.
