This Thursday, November 18th from 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM, the school will be hosting "Grandparents and Goodies". This is an opportunity for grandparents to bring their grandchildren to the school to listen to books being read, have a donut and visit the book fair. It's important for the adults in children's lives to show them how important reading is, and this is a great time to do that!
This week we will be having our Book Fair at school. It will be open before school (8:30-9:15) and during lunch (11:30-12:30) on the stage. The PTA is looking for some parent helpers to help during these times. If you would like to volunteer, please sign up here. The Book Fair is a great way to support our school, while showing your students how important reading is. With the holidays just around the corner, books make great gifts!
Mrs. Openshaw's class learned about Dia de los Muertos during the month of October, and then on November 1st & 2nd, celebrated the holiday by putting together an ofrenda. Students were allowed to bring a picture of a loved one to be displayed on their class ofrenda, and enjoyed telling their classmates about the person in their picture. It was a great opportunity for students to learn about another culture, and the way they celebrate their loved ones.
