We have such a busy week ahead of us that's filled with fun for not only our children but for you as well! Enjoy!

Right to Read Week: Book Wars~The Reader Awakens!

The Right to Read Week committee has put together a fun week for our children!

Right to Read Week is May 2-6, 2016.

  • Monday: Jedi in Training Day (Students can wear their sweats or Star Wars gear.)
  • Tuesday: The Reader Awakens (Students can wear their PJs and read by flashlight in their classrooms at their teacher's discretion. We will have flashlights for you.) The Sandusky Library will be here...make sure you sign up for a special story time on Kathy's google doc.
  • Wednesday: May the 4th Be With You (Students wear white.)
  • Thursday: Revenge of the 5th (Wear Black)
  • Friday: Students will be encouraged to wear their Book Wars t-shirt or other Star Wars gear. Padawan's Playground will be here with their Star Wars Exhibit complements of our PTO. This schedule will be shared with you. Lunches will be packed from the cafeteria and eaten outside or in classrooms.

Sarah Baer and Katie Toft-Miller are working on organizing a Book Swap. Fliers were shared last week. If you have any questions, just ask them!

You can decorate/plan at your own will. We won't be decorating all of our classroom doors as we have done in the's already a busy week and we didn't want to add one more thing to your plate.

Thanks to our Right to Read Week Committee for organizing a fun week for our children!
