A Note From The Superintendent's Desk - As educators one of our main goals is to teach all children how to read. Reading and comprehending what we are reading is essential to be successful in life. I know the New Illinois Learning Standards have put more rigor into the language arts curriculum, but we want every child to be able to reach for the stars when determining their futures. I want to share with you a few quotes regarding reading and education:

“A truly good book teaches me better than to read it. I must soon lay it down, and commence living on its hint. What I began by reading, I must finish by acting.”
Henry David Thoreau

“Reading furnishes the mind only with materials of knowledge; it is thinking that makes what we read ours.”
John Locke

“The books that help you most are those which make you think that most. The hardest way of learning is that of easy reading; but a great book that comes from a great thinker is a ship of thought, deep freighted with truth and beauty.”
Pablo Neruda

“I never feel lonely if I've got a book - they're like old friends. Even if you're not reading them over and over again, you know they are there. And they're part of your history. They sort of tell a story about your journey through life.”
Emilia Fox

“He that loves reading has everything within his reach.”
William Godwin

“There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them.”
Ray Bradbury

The next time your child is bored and states that they have nothing to do, suggest reading. Read with them, read to them, read a story from the Internet, it doesn’t matter, Just Read!!!
