At Cascade Middle School, Students Taking Action are raising funds to bring clean water to communities in Nicaragua. Please follow the link below to read about the campaign!
Next month our school will be embarking on a special project, an all-school book club called One School, One Book. Every family will receive a copy of the same book and will be asked to read it together at home over the next few weeks. We are asking you to make the time so that your family can participate in this special activity.
Reading aloud at home is valuable because it better prepares your child to be an effective reader, and it is also a fun, worthwhile family activity. With the One School, One Book™ program, we aim to build a Community of Readers at our school. Everyone – students, parents, teachers, and even administrative staff will all be following along together.
Your child will receive a copy of our carefully selected title, Rules, after a special school-wide assembly introducing the program and the book. Students will arrive home that evening having read the first seven chapters of the book. They should be able to summarize what was read. Along with the book, you will receive a reading schedule so that your child can keep up at home. Generally, your child will be asked to read about 15 minutes each night.
