On top of these seasonal traditions, October is also National Book Month, the National Book Foundation’s annual celebration of reading, books and all things literary." ~Domican University School of Education...

Caledonia Elementary School’s Fathers Walk On Thursday, September 19, 2013, Caledonia participated in the annual Fathers Walk.  Cool C.A.T.S. enjoyed the company of their fathers who joined them in the cafeteria for breakfast. Afterwards, the fathers enjoyed a continental breakfast as they “networked” with each other. It was a beautiful sight to see the expressions of joy on the children’s faces as they took their fathers on a tour of the school. The experience culminated with the raffling of tickets to Shaw’s Battle of the Bands.  The fathers will each receive a picture to memorialize the experience.
