Let’s all do our part to give a warm Saskatchewan welcome to His Royal Highness.”

Officially Global Read Aloud begins October 6th but St. Mary students are preparing for this great literacy opportunity as of today. Classrooms will link with another classroom from another part of the world to connect by reading the same book and then share their learning using a variety of technology. Thanks Ms. Moser for sharing!
