 PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

 

Hello Poet Families!

      

 
                  The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”   - Dr. Seuss
   
         This is one of my favorite quotes from Dr. Seuss because it really encompasses the importance of reading.   Being able to read is the most important skill we teach our children in school.  This cannot be overstated.  Childrens’ success in school rests entirely on how well they are able to read.  Reading is the foundation of instruction:  the first three years students learn to read, during the remaining years they read to learn.  Think about that for a moment.  Everything they learn in school requires the ability to read.
 
       I spent the early parts of my career in education teaching math in high school and middle school and I always believed that being able to understand and use math was the most important skill we needed in life.  I understand now that being able to read is the single most important skill we must teach our students.  It is the most critical skill to learn and is the gateway for learning in all other subjects.  Math, however, is still a very strong 2nd!
 
          Dr. Seuss is one of my favorite authors because of the way he structures his stories, uses rhyming, and creates funny drawings to go along with them.   It is impossible not to laugh or smile when reading a Dr. Seuss story.   Try reading Fox in Socks without laughing at the story and your attempts to read it without stumbling.   I strongly encourage you to engage your children in reading no matter their age.  Read to them, read with them, have them read to you.  Talk about the stories, have them predict what will happen next, and have them tell you what is going on.  Just engage them as much as possible in reading.  You would be surprised to find that even middle school students enjoy having a book being read to them and they will enjoy talking to you about the story.  You will find how much you will enjoy reading along with your children.   Who doesn’t love a good story?!
 
          This week we are doing a Dr. Seuss Spirit Week in his honor and to have some fun at school.  On March 2nd we are hosting a Dr. Seuss night to celebrate his work and the love of reading.  I’ll leave you with a quote from Fox in Socks, “When beetles fight these battles in a bottle with their paddles and the bottle’s on a poodle and the poodle’s eating noodles.…”  Good times!  
 
 
Mr. Maslyar
