Students Visit “Big Nate” Author
On Tuesday, March 17th, families from Saint Matthias traveled to Rockville to meet author/cartoonist Lincoln Peirce who writes the “Big Nate” series. Mrs. O’Hare, our upper level librarian, alerted families to the event. Each year, authors also visit Saint Matthias to share about the writing process. This year, visits have been made possible thanks to Skype in the Classroom as well!
Saint Matthias has two libraries, meeting the needs of readers PreK-8th grade. Currently, 82% of Saint Matthias students read at or above grade level. Not only does Saint Matthias boast strong readers, the students also continue to grow in their reading assessments, with each EVERY class in the building showing growth in their reading scores between the September and January assessments of students.
