A Note From Miss Kelly
A book order went home today in your child's folder. If you wish to order books from Scholastic, you can place your order on their website. I have attached a parent letter explaining the process for ordering books. Orders need to be placed by Wednesday, November 19.
News From the School
Important Dragon Band Announcement:
If your child uses their Dragon Band to purchase lunch at school it is important to "top up" the band at the vending machine on a regular basis. Campus Card will send reminders to parents once the card dips below 100 QR.
Big News- author visit this week!
All of the students in the Lower Elementary School will be meeting our visiting author, Hena Khan on Monday. Listening to a writer and discovering how she comes up with ideas and translates those on to the page is a great thrill for our students. They are all learning to be writers so seeing a 'real' author can be a true incentive for them in their own writing.
We are selling copies of Hena Khan's books in the library and a book by an author you have met always finds a special place on a child's bookshelf. So if you would like to buy a copy, please complete the attached form and return it after the weekend.
