During the week of February 25th, Carl Sandburg Middle School’s students and staff celebrated Read Across America. Read Across America is an annual reading celebration aimed at bringing awareness to the importance of positive reading skills. It was also designed to motivate students to celebrate reading. Each day of the week was dedicated to a different Dr. Seuss story, which encouraged students to show school spirit by participating in each of the daily Dr. Seuss themes.
Every year at Carl Sandburg middle school, the Students Against Destructive Decisions (S.A.D.D) holds the annual Red Ribbon Week. This week symbolizes the commitment to raise awareness of the killing and destruction caused by drugs in America. Red Ribbon Week, developed by the National Family Partnership, began in 1988 and is held October 23rd to the 31st of every year.
