Welcome to October - Children's Magazine Month, National Book Month, National Pizza Month, Feasts of the Guardian Angels, St. Therese of Lisieux, St. Francis of Assisi, and St. Teresa of Avila, Parent/Teacher Conferences, and All Hallow's Eve.  Hi, I am Mrs. Nicklay and it is my pleasure to serve as a Reading Resource teacher (gr. 4-6) and librarian (gr. 1-6) at St. Stan's Elementary School.  I love kids and I love books, so my jobs are the perfect blend of both.  My passion is to help students to see themselves as readers and get excited about books and reading!
