From the Principal!

In the school setting the month of March is known as “March is Reading Month! I would like to emphases that every month is a good month to keep reading. The more a child reads the better he/she becomes at reading. The best thing you can do to improve your child’s school achievement is to have him/her read at least 20 minutes every night.
In our literacy rich society reading happens all around us and can occur in many forms. Children can practice their reading skills in many ways. They can always pick up a good book, read a magazine, read information form a child safe web site or read the back of a cereal box. One of the best ways I have found to encourage my own children to read more is to turn off the sound and turn on the closed captions while they watch their favorite television show.
Studies have shown time and time again that reading is the gateway to academic achievement. I challenge our school community to find ways to discover the enjoyment of reading and make sure that our children make reading a part of their life.
If you need suggestions on how to get your child to read, please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher or call me and I will try to help you. West Utica is a true school of excellence and I thank all our students, staff, parents, and community members that work together to do what is right for our children.
