Humboldt Collegiate Institute held their second annual Literacy Blast on February 5. Students from all three elementary schools in Humboldt -- Horizon's Humboldt Public School and Greater Saskatoon Catholic's St. Dominic and St. Augustine -- were invited for a day of activities centered around reading, writing, and speaking. Elementary students were paired with students at the high school, and made their way through several stations to read, write, craft, and listen to stories read by guests from the community. Horizon's Subdivision 2 Trustee and Board Vice Chair, Linda Mattock, joined students to read books like "The Dinky Donkey" (sequel to "The Wonky Donkey"), and "Thelma the Unicorn".
The day is part of HCI's annual Learning Improvement Plan. It comes together with the help and planning of the HCI School Community Council, staff, SRC, and students. Special thanks to Humboldt Sobeys and Humboldt Co-op for donating snacks for the day!
