“A community is a safe place to grow, a space that welcomes you fully, that sees you for who you are, that invites your participation, and that holds you gently while you explore.” Mara Sapon-Shevin
During Reading Workshop, we learned about the difference in fiction and non-fiction books. Look through your child's books at home to see if they can tell the difference.
We also started the Super Writer basket this week. Children who are following the Writing Workshop rules AND implementing the mini-lesson we have taught for the day have the chance to get the Super Writer basket to use for a day. The kids are SO excited about working hard just to get a chance to use the basket. Selihom and Kendall got a chance to use the basket this week!

Announcements and Reminders
Brookwood High School Homecoming Parade
Brookwood Homecoming Parade
Mark your calendars for Friday, October 7th! The Brookwood Homecoming Parade will begin at 4:45pm. They've pushed it a little later this year to help accommodate the middle school schedule. This is a fun community event and the kids LOVE it. The parade leaves from Brookwood High School, goes down Holly Brook, turns into Brookwood Manor, goes through the neighborhood leaving on Dogwood, and then ends again at the high school. TONS of candy is thrown throughout the route! Kids love it!!! Our very own Amy Granger will be in the parade as our Teacher of the Year! Hope to see you there!
