                                            Read Across America 

 

        Let’s Celebrate Read Across America Week!

March 2-6, 2015

                                                                  

Each year schools across the country celebrate Read Across America week during the first week of March.  This date was chosen because beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss was born on March 2nd.

This year we will celebrate reading by doing something extra fun!  Each day will have a theme to correspond to a Dr. Seuss book.  Students may dress according to each day’s theme.  Be creative and have fun!

Hat Drive To Support Our Own

posted Jan 22, 2015, 7:03 AM by Danelle Nutter   [ updated Jan 22, 2015, 9:22 AM ]



 

 

                  It’s more than just a hat!                            

 

Dear Mountaineer Family,

 

         We are holding a hat drive to support an organization called Ellie’s Hats in support of one of our very own Mountaineers battling a childhood cancer.  The mission of this organization is to “donate hats to children with cancer and to raise childhood cancer awareness. The hope is that by showing these brave children that others are thinking about them it will help bring a little cheer into their day.”

 

We will begin the hat drive with a kick-off hat day this Friday, January 16th. Please have your child wear one of his or her favorite hats to school that day to support the cause and a fellow Mountaineer. We will also begin collecting any new hats of any kind and any child-hood size on Friday the 23rd as well. The hat drive will run until January 30th. The majority of the hats will be donated to a participating hospital in Virginia and some will make it to a special home in Madison, VA. For more information about Ellie’s Hats, please visit www.ellieshats.org.

 

When explaining the purpose of the hat drive, we will briefly discuss that cancer is a disease that has a treatment that may result in hair loss for some. The hats collected will go to some of those children for them to enjoy until their hair grows back.  If you have any questions about how to talk to your child, feel free to call the School Counselor, Karen Organ Lohr at 948-3781.




 

                                                                        Sincerely,

                                                                        Madison Primary School
