Reading was celebrated across the nation during the month of March. Here are some great ways to incorporate reading into the month of March and beyond. 1. Go Book Shopping. This can be done anywhere from local bookstores to Amazon or with a trip to the library. Ask friends, librarians, and teachers for some great book recommendations. 2. Get Comfortable. Designate a special spot in your house for reading. Fill it with pillows, blankets, and books. It doesn’t have to be big. 3. Set Aside Family Reading Time. It is a lot easier to get everyone reading if everyone is doing it together. Set aside a designated amount of time each night. This may include reading a book as a family or everyone reading on their own. 4. Celebrate With a Movie. As a family, you can choose a book that also has a movie. After you read the book together, you can all settle in and watch the movie together. You can even have a discussion about which one you thought was better and why.

HELP!! Glendive Public Schools is struggling yet again and in desperate need of substitute teachers, cooks and custodians. The last few days with staff shortages have left us with several positions unfilled. We have an amazing staff that has been working tirelessly to shift, adjust, and cover everything that we need to fill these vacant positions so that we can continue to operate our schools. We are asking for our community's help to fill this gap so we won’t have to cancel school for a lack of staffing. Again, we are in desperate need of help! Please consider applying to be a substitute in our district. You don’t have to be a licensed teacher, you just have to pass a background check and take a short online training course. You can choose which days you want to work and give a preference as to which school(s) you would like to work in and how many hours you want to work. What other job gives you those opportunities? To apply you can go to the District’s website at glendiveschools.com and click on employment opportunities on the top right corner. Or for more information please call Jackie Stinnett at the Superintendent’s Office at (406) 377-6102. The students of Glendive Public Schools need you now more than ever!!

We want to keep our students healthy and in school. Here are some more quick tips to help students reduce the spread of germs at school. 1. Hands off Your Face – Teach students to keep hands away from their face, out of their nose and out of their mouths. If they accidentally touch these things, remind them to wash their hands right away. 2. Skip the Water Fountain – Send a water bottle with students each day so they can avoid the water fountain. If they need to use the water fountain, teach students how to drink without touching their mouth to the spigot. 3. Eat Fruits and Veggies – A healthy diet can help boost the immune system. 4. Get Enough Sleep – Sleep helps build the immune system. Follow these guidelines: *Ages 10-17: 8.5 to 9.5 hours per night *Ages 5-10: 10 to 11 hours per night *Ages 3-5: 11 to 13 hours per night 5. Stay Home From School when Sick – If a student is sick, they need to stay home until they are well again to avoid spreading illness to others.
Kids love to be close and share everything, even germs. Here are some quick tips to help students reduce the spread of germs at school. 1. Wash your Hands – Wash hands in warm soapy water for at least 20 seconds. Sing the alphabet song once to help with timing. 2. Don’t Share – Send extra supplies so students can use their own items rather than community items. 3. Cover Sneezes and Coughs – Sneeze into the crook of the elbow or into a tissue, not into hands. If a student accidentally sneezes into their hands, remind them to wash their hands right away.
