Students Share Love of Reading with New Principal
St. James-Santee Elementary students and parents were recently invited to story time with the school's new principal Chris Swetckie.
Mr. Swetckie was joined by numerous current St. James students, as well as children from the neighboring Rising Star Child Development Center. The students and administrator shared a reading of Laura Numeroff's book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. Everyone was please to learn that the mouse had left cookies for them to enjoy as well!
The activity allowed the children and their parents to meet the school's new leader, while it also reinforced the importance and fun of reading.
