PJ Story Hour A Huge Success!

Earlier this week, we hosted nearly 300 students from preschool to 5th grade at our 18th annual PJ Story Hour reading celebration! We had parent and teacher (and principal) volunteer readers as well as our special guest Geronimo Stilton. The younger grades loved hearing stories and meeting Geronimo, and the older students put on a fabulous reader theater performance! The evening was capped off by the debut of our Read All Day video, featuring the staff of LMES in a hilarious promotion for reading!

Dress Like A Character Day!

As part of our Leaps for Literacy, students and staff got dressed up as their favorite fictional character. The hallways were alive with characters such as Harry Potter, Dorothy, Mercy Watson, and more! I'm not sure who had more fun, the students or staff!

Bagel Buddies

The LMES PTO is excited to host our annual breakfast for students, parents and siblings! Bagel Buddies offers LMES students an opportunity to invite a parent or special person to share breakfast with them. Siblings are welcome! Panera bagels, fresh fruit, orange juice, milk and Starbucks coffee will be served in the cafetorium. The cost is $2.00 per person. NO CHILDREN MAY BE LEFT UNATTENDED BEFORE 8:40AM. ALL CHILDREN MUST BE WITH AN ADULT UNTIL 8:40AM. Children must be taken home to get the bus if their parents are leaving the school before 8:40AM. The Book Fair will be open during Bagel Buddies! Please do not bring any food or drink outside the cafetorium. Due to limited space, please come early to avoid the crowds. If you have questions or would like to volunteer, please contact Elizabeth DeLeo by email at edeleo@charter.net or by text at 203-841-9363.

Tornado!

Fifth graders have been learning about weather and the earth's atmosphere. Students participated in a hands-on demonstration of "vortex action" as they created their own Tornadoes in a Bottle.

Donated Dictionaries!

The Rotary Club donated a new set of dictionaries to our appreciative third grade students this week. We want to thank you for these invaluable print resources! We will be using them heavily as we continue reading and writing nonfiction, doing research and learning about the world around us in social studies and science!
