Spotlight on our Title Teachers

Mrs.Nicoletti and Miss Poling are popular names around the building. They are our Title One teachers and have had the opportunity to work with just about all of our students in the building as well as our virtual students. They completed assessments on all students at the beginning of the year and work with students in small group settings. Their mission is to build self-esteem in students and encourage them to be confident and successful readers. All students are eager to work with these ladies, as they plan fun and engaging lessons that promote the love of reading!

One School, One Book

This week we had our One School, One book reveal. The kids were excited to find out the name of the book Monday morning. Our book is The Tale of Despereaux! We have so many fun activities planned in the upcoming weeks. The activities link was sent home last week. Please remember to take a look at all the activities and have fun! These are all optional but are a great opportunity to engage with the book.The chapter recordings are available for all to listen to. We will still have our spirit days at school, remember to check out the calendar. A great activity for the weekend would be the community scavenger hunt. We have 8 community businesses supporting our OSOB initiative. Visit each of these businesses and get a stamp on the matrix and return it to school for a chance to win a prize!

Next week: Light Day, Dark Day, Royalty Day, BIg Ears Day, and Tail Day.

A Message from Mrs. Martucci

The Kids Heart Challenge (Jump Rope for Heart) is almost over, but it's not too late to register and earn prizes! Register online at heart.org/KHC and your child will earn a free wristband. A $5 online donation will earn your child "Dash," a fun heart hero reward! So far our school has raised almost $1,400! Many thanks to all those that have registered and donated money so far! All money raised goes directly to the American Heart Association, a very worthwhile cause that helps save lives! All donations need to be done online and completed by this Sunday, February 28. I do this in memory of my dad - is there someone you can honor and jump for today? Again, thank you for your support!
