Literacy Day Activities

On January 27, 2023, Superior North Catholic District School Board schools celebrated Family Literacy Day. This day was created to increase awareness and appreciation of the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-related activities as a family. Doing so can help your family learn, grow, and bond together.

Holy Saviour Catholic School took part in a fun-filled morning engaged in school family literacy day activities. Students and staff were encouraged to dress up as their favourite literary characters, and participants were entered into a literacy prize draw.

At St. Edward Catholic School, students wrote book reviews to acknowledge Family Literacy Day and entered their names into a draw to win a gift pack - one for each class. Also, a caterpillar is growing in the hallway at St. Edward Catholic School. For each book a student reads, they can increase the caterpillar length by writing their name and the book's name on a circle and adding it.

At St. Hilary Catholic School, staff and students participated in educational literacy games. Literacy games can be an effective and fun way to help children and adults learn to read and write. Games such as crosswords, word searches, and other puzzles can help to improve spelling, reading comprehension, and grammar. By making learning fun, these games can help to create a lifelong love of reading and writing, which can benefit students throughout their educational journey.

Junior and Senior Kindergarten students at St. Joseph Catholic School shared their favourite stories with their classmates. Grade 5 and 6 students often volunteer to read their class novel "Hatchet.” For Literacy Day, Kaley read Chapter 2 to the class.
