Promoting Politeness Through Pages

As a precursor to the districtwide celebration of National Read Across America Day and iconic children’s author Dr. Seuss’ birthday on March 2, Superintendent Dr. Kishore Kuncham visited New Visions to read to students.

Dr. Kuncham read “Each Kindness” by Jacqueline Woodson, engaging students with thought-provoking questions and urging them to embrace each other’s differences and perform random acts of kindness whenever they can. The special visit not only promoted the importance of reading regularly, but also supported the district’s ongoing character education initiatives.

As part of a 10-week after school program funded by the 21st Century Grant, students at New Visions have been participating in Chess Nuts. Chess Nuts provides both beginner and intermediate players the opportunity to learn and sharpen their strategic and critical thinking skills.

At the conclusion of the first of four Chess Nuts sessions, students in grades K-4 received medals and trophies based on the number of matches they won. Fourth-grader Chase Holt won the top prize following victories in four matches.
