Hemlock, MI – Hemlock Public School District joins the nation focusing on reading and the importance of literacy this March.
In honor of National Reading Month, Superintendent Killingbeck is scheduled to visit several classrooms and read to students this month as part of the celebration.
Superintendent Killingbeck is choosing to read a children’s book he authored a few years ago. The book is a true story about the survival and adventure of four ducks that survive an attack by a fox or coyote by working together and looking out for one another.
Superintendent Killingbeck said, “I like sharing this book because it focuses the conversation afterward about caring for one another and being a community, also while talking about grit and perseverance.”
Hemlock Elementary and K.C. Ling Elementary has several activities centered around literacy this month from assemblies, to rewards, and so much more.
Principal Lori Gensch encouraged students with a kick-off to National Reading Month with an assembly. She shared, “Do not stop reading this month and every day forward! Reading is an important gateway skill for all of our students.”
