Global Read Aloud
Orange Team students are participating in the Global Read Aloud 2019. The goal of this project: one book to connect the world.
Weeks of research and planning produced an incredible debate. Students on the Green Team took a side on whether the team should institute regular breaks in the day for exercise.
Harris the Third
All students had the opportunity to see illusionist, Harris the Third, this week. His performance was amazing, but his message was the most powerful part. He talked to students about how they should question what they see, never loose their passion to wonder, and believe in themselves.

The Joseph Beth Book Fair is Coming Soon to E.H.Greene - October 24 - November 1
We’re super-excited about our upcoming Book Fair. There will be hundreds of books available for the students to purchase. Prices will range from $2.00 to about $25.00, with the average price of a book being $6.00 or $7.00.
There will be something for all ages, so perhaps plan to get a head start on your holiday shopping. Teachers will also have Wish Lists if you’d like to buy a gift for your child’s classroom.
The first day of the Fair is Thursday, October 24 beginning at 3:30 and the final day is Friday November 1 ending at 11:00. It will be open each weekday from 7:45am -3 PM, and will also be open during ALL conferences times.
Your child will visit the Book Fair during their regularly scheduled Multimedia Exploration class. Those not in that class are encouraged to visit the book fair independently any time during the week by getting a pass from their teacher.
Conference time is an excellent time to come with your child to shop at our Book Fair. We will be open during the evening conferences on Wednesday October 30 until 8 PM. So . . . be sure to stop by the Media Center. We’ll be looking for you!
Additionally, we will be collecting loose change (or dollar bills) to help buy new books for Operation Give Back located in Blue Ash. You can go to www.ogiveback.com to learn more about that organization. There will be a jar at the Fair in which to donate your loose change (or dollar bills). Our goal is to donate $100 worth of new books to OGB.
THANK YOU FOR HELPING TO PUT GREAT BOOKS INTO
THE HANDS OF GREAT KIDS!
Parents of 5th graders
If you are interested in having your child tested for possible placement into accelerated math, double accelerated math and/or advanced language arts for 6th grade, we are offering the CogAT on November 7th. Please fill out the form using the link below. (All 6th graders will be tested) To take the CogAT, students should already have at least 1 score of 95th percentile or higher on the MAP in reading and/or math. Students already in accelerated math, double accelerated math, or advanced language arts do not need to take the CogAT to remain in the class. The form will close on November 4th.
Lost and Found
The lost and found donation deadline has been extended! During parent-teacher conferences, lost and found items will be set out on tables in the hallway. Anything not claimed by the last day of conferences will be donated. In the meantime, please have your child check the lost and found (moved near the office for conferences) for missing items. Thank you!
