Welcome to the Hub
|Welcome to The Hub! Students of Sanilac ISD Special Education programs have recently opened a school store called The Hub. The store is ran by students and all products sold in the store are made by students in Career Technical programs at the Sanilac Career Center. Working at The Hub has proven to be a great experience for students to increase vocational skills including communicating with customers, operating a cash register, counting money, and stocking shelves. Students working in the store, from left to right, are Anthony Shagene of Sandusky and Shawn Pratt of Marlette.
Celebrate National Reading Month
March is National Reading Month. According to the Michigan State University Extension Office, Michigan ranks 43 out of the 50 states in meeting national reading standards by the fourth grade, and, reading proficiently by the end of the third grade can be a “make or break benchmark” in a child’s educational development. In an effort to improve these statistics, many Sanilac County physician offices and the healthcare entities promote and support various literacy projects and educational presentations, such as the ABC’s of Early Literacy and Reach Out and Read®.
MSUE and Great Start Sanilac have partnered with the local Reach Out and Read office sites to host "The ABC’s of Early Literacy". This is a hands-on workshop that includes activities which can be used in daily interactions with young children. Literacy development begins at birth and is important to pre-reading or emergent literacy skills. This type of brain development sets the stage for learning to read when the child enters Kindergarten. During this workshop attendees can learn more about why early literacy development is so important and how you can help very young children become successful readers. The ABC’s of Early Literacy workshop will be held on Wednesday, March 11, 2015 at the Sanilac Career Center. This program is free, but pre-registration is required. It starts at 5:30 p.m. and child care is included.For more information, and to register, call 810-648-2200, ext. 4108 or 810-648-2515, ext. 307. Click here for the flyer
Reach Out and Read®is an evidence-based nonprofit organization of medical providers who promote early literacy and school readiness in pediatric exam rooms nationwide by giving new books to children and advice to parents about the importance of reading aloud. It is designed so every child age 6 months through 4 years gets a new book at each of their well child examinations. The physician incorporates reading the book into the exam. This interaction is an assessment tool that is used at various stages of development of a child, and assists in assessing social interaction, expressions, reaching and grasping, and recognition of shapes, colors, animals etc.; whatever the subject of the books.
Area offices promoting and supporting these very important projects are Sanilac County Health Department, Deckerville Healthcare Services office of Bassam Afaneh MD and Lori Nugent PA-C; McKenzie Health Systems Croswell Medical Clinic, office of Matthew Gormley MD and Nichole Liccardello NP; Austin Street Clinic, office of Carrie Eugester NP; and Peck Medical Center, office of Erin Roberts NP. You can find out more information on Reach Out and Read®at www.reachoutandread.org. To make a donation locally, contact one of the offices above and ask about the Reach Out and Read®program.
