Reading Fair

We will once again have a Reading Fair the first week of March to celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday and Read Across America Day. An email with specific instructions will be sent this week. Please forward it to parents.

If you are planning on assigning a book project for Black History Month, the Reading Fair would be a great format to use.

You can read about the guidelines for projects, view the rubric and how-to guides, and see pictures of past projects on the school website.

There are also examples of past projects on display in the library.

Tell Your Story!

Send pictures of what is happening in your classroom to share on social media and the webpage. Show the community the wonderful things your students are doing. Pictures will be posted on the school's Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook accounts as well as in a webpage slideshow.
