Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge

The Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge started on May 6th. Your student should have received his/her username and password to log on to the Scholastic Summer Reading log. Students must log minutes every two weeks. You cannot go back and log minutes past two weeks. If you do not have access to a computer and are unable to log your minutes weekly during the summer, please keep a record of your child's minutes to be recorded by Mrs. Doumit the first week of school. To visit the Scholastic Summer Reading website go to https://www.scholastic.com/summer/home/. Due to renovations on campus, the library will not be open during the summer this year.

Annunciation has been awarded "Best in State" for the past six years for having read the most minutes over the summer. Let's strive for year number seven! Mrs. Doumit has set a school wide goal this year of 1,000,000 minutes! This is a great opportunity for students to stay on top of their reading and have some fun at the same time over the summer. If you have any questions about the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge, contact librarian, Terri Doumit at library@annunciationcatholicschool.org.

Staff Spotlight of the Week

Staff Spotlight of the Week is Kindergarten Teaching Assistant, Janice Greenslade. This is Janice’s 7th year at ACS as Mrs. Ford’s Assistant and Janice’s 10th year as an ACS mom. With her youngest son, Rhett, set to promote from the current 8th grade class, Janice’s three children are, or will all soon be, ACS Alumni. Janice is a graduate of the University of Alberta, Canada where she earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Anthropology and New Mexico State University, Las Cruces where she earned a Master’s Degree in Anthropology.

“I would love to share two of the things that I enjoy most about being a Kindergarten Teaching Assistant. First, there is something magical that seems to happen for many kindergartners about three quarters of the way through the school year. About this time, many students truly begin to grasp how to write their thoughts and ideas down on paper in a manner that a reader can understand. The children use inventive spelling to sound out their words, they understand the need to put spaces between words so that the reader knows where each word begins and ends, they remember to start a sentence with a capital letter and they know that there are a variety of available options in terms of punctuation. Somehow these things seem to click and the sheer joy and excitement on the children’s faces is nothing short of wonderful. The second thing that I absolutely love about being in kindergarten is the opportunity to dance on a regular basis, on the spur of the moment or at the drop of a hat. Kindergartners dance with little regard to how they look, rather they simply enjoy how it feels and these sweet, sweet kiddos never seem to criticize my own dance moves … who could ask for anything more?” - Janice Greenslade
