BOOK FAIR IS NEXT WEEK!
As you saw in the important dates section next week is book week. Each day has a theme for how your child should dress. Monday, your child should dress like a book character. The deal is the character had to be in a book before it became a movie not vice versa. Tuesday, dress can be hippy-ish. Wacky Wednesday, well, anything out of sorts will do. Thursday is Spring Picture Day so dress your child in what you would like to see them in for years to come on your gallery wall in your home. Friday we are going on a field trip to TPAC. Dress your child in MM7 shirt and jeans. Have your child bring a towel or blanket and a furry friend for reading time late in the day.
