1st Grade Book Publishers are In the House!

Since our “class published book” was such a hit last year we decided to do it again this year.  We used George & Martha stories as a starting point.  We listened to many of their adventures and created our own story with them as the characters.  Our imaginations created our wonderful end product.  The children were excited to see their final product as a real book! 

Readathon Begins!


The readathon starts today!  We are so excited about focusing on reading for the next few weeks.  We are making reading a rewarding journey for both your child and our school but we need your help.  Please be sure that you have registered your child and follow the instructions in the Read-a-Thon system https://www.read-a-thon.com/school/Holy-Family-Catholic-Academy_23785
