Students at North Middle School celebrated International Literacy Day on Thursday, September 8.
In honor of International Literacy Day, members of the English department collaborated to select short stories for each grade level to promote literacy and cultural awareness within our school. Homeroom teachers led students through an interactive read aloud during an extended homeroom period. Short stories included: “Amigo Brothers” by Piri Thomas, “Mother and Daughter” by Gary Soto, and “Rules of The Game” by Amy Tan. It was wonderful to see our students actively engaged in reading short stories that reflected various cultural perspectives.
