Snickers the Dog is Back!
Starting the first week of October Snickers the dog is back!! Dog Pals is an after school reading program that integrates a therapy dog named Snickers. Students will practice reading and writing skills with the dog. They will also get a chance to investigate different careers that work with animals. With this program we can increase the number of Accelerated Reader (AR) books read and take the AR comprehension quizzes while at club to increase student AR points in the district-wide AR program. As an added bonus they also get to teach the dog some cool new tricks!
Special authorization and parental permission slips are required to join the club. Membership is limited due to the nature of the program. Contact Dr. Raschke via email for more information if you have a child that may be interested at firstname.lastname@example.org
Special thanks to Dr. Raschke for giving students this wonderful opportunity.
From non-fiction to fantasy & science fiction novels students will have a chance to get hold of their favorite books! Next week Horizon Science Academy Middle School will be hosting the Scholastic Book Fair during school hours. The book Fair will open on Monday, October 2nd and run through October 6th, 2107. Students will be given opportunities to shop for new books and trinkets to help our students expand their minds and lose themselves in the comfort of a book. The Book Fair has an incredible selection of books for students to purchase. Funds raised through Book Fair purchases support HSA classroom reading libraries!
Cash is the preferred method of payment. If you are not able to send your student with money or miss the fair, you can always order online here between now and October 10.
We hope the book fair is a success.
