Pied Piper School

Pied Piper School has officially kicked off March is Reading Month, engaging students and staff in a series of activities aimed at cultivating a love for reading.

In celebration of the occasion, teachers have adorned the building with vibrant decorations, themed around Reading Rainbow, to cultivate an immersive literary ambiance. 

Principal Lauren Grulke expressed her enthusiasm for the initiative, stating, "March is Reading Month isn’t just about flipping through pages.  It's about unlocking the doors to imagination and knowledge. This month provides an excellent opportunity for our students to embrace the magic of reading."

Throughout the month, Pied Piper School has a lineup of engaging events, including guest readers Judge Ed Black, State Rep. Cam Cavitt, City of Alpena Fireman Andy Marceau, Trooper Jason Kunath, and numerous staff from across the AMA ESD. There is also a plan for various literary art projects and a school-wide reading challenge supported by a daily Drop Everything and Read (DEAR) activity. The goal is to make reading a shared experience, encouraging discussions among students and promoting a sense of community through the love of books.

The school's administration is also encouraging parents to get involved in their children's reading journey by setting aside dedicated time for family reading, ensuring that the impact of March Is Reading Month extends beyond the school.
