Laura B. Sprague School Newsletter - March 12, 2021
Creative Artistic Masks
Students have taken to the lifestyle of mask wearing with an assortment of fashion masks. Students are wearing everything from super hero masks to bright colorful masks. People are wearing masks or cloth face coverings when they're in public because of coronavirus (COVID-19). It's an important way to help slow the spread of the virus. But, despite the number of COVID cases declining and the increase in individuals vaccinated against the virus, parents should not let down their guard and stop using masks. Please visit the school's Facebook page for other student face mask pictures.
Global Book Club
During the month of March, Sprague is hosting a Global Book Club! This year's theme is celebrating a nation of diverse readers! To participate please do the following:
- Print out the World Traveler Passport record keeping sheet.
- Each school day in March a Seesaw activity will be pushed out on your child's iPad. The Seesaw activity will include resources to learn about a specific country that may include a read aloud, virtual fields trips, crafts, songs, and dances.
- After your child explores a country, the child can color in that country's flag on their passport! There are even extra spots to explore a different country of your child's choice! This is an optional activity for your child to enjoy and explore on their own.
No matter how many countries your child has visited by the end of March, please take a picture of your child and their passport to send to email@example.com or text it to her at 847-791-3749.
