Kindness Week

Thanks, everyone, for your help with Great Kindness Week. Student Council did a great job (thanks, Sarah!) How lucky are we as adults that we have a job where we get to dress silly every once in awhile? Not many people get to do that, and whatever your comfort level was, thanks for supporting it - and even more importantly, thank you for supporting kindness within our walls and beyond our borders.

Author Visit on Friday

On Friday, grades 3-5 will gather in the library to listen to our guest author for Literacy Night, Tanya Lee Stone. 3rd-5th grade teachers, please introduce Ms. Stone early in the week and keep adding more each day - visitors enjoy their experience with us SO much more when they realize kids have done their research ahead of time. Here is her website - let kids explore this during the week. I found these youtubes that are great for in-between other activities throughout the week.

Meet the Author: Tanya Lee Stone - 3 minute general introduction

Reading part of her book "Almost Astronauts"

Researching a Story - In this video, she gives away a question she always asks during school visits!
