Book Club Update From Ms. Stokes (parent!)
As you may know, Kathie Stokes, parent of a 4th grader, has started a Book Club that meets in the library. If you have a student who may be interested, please contact Kathie!
Here's a little update from Ms. Stokes on the Book Club happenings-
I wanted to let you know that the book club has been going well. I have had a very animated discussion with the third graders last week about My Father's Dragon. This week was a fun one about "The Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankenweiler" with the 4th graders. We got to talk about Michaelangelo and the Met in New York. This coming week the 5th graders we will be discussing "The Westing Game".
Lastly, I am having the kids design their own bookmarks that we started just this week. I will be copying those off and having them ready probably next week. I am hoping to keep both of these two thing going all year long.
Just keeping you up to date on what we are doing.

Our Family Coalition Event- You are Invited!
Our Family Coalition is pleased to invite you to participate in:
Everyone’s School: 9th Annual Town Hall on Creating LGBTQ Inclusive Classrooms
Join us for an evening of dinner and conversation, designed for parents, teachers, counselors and administrators to engage in conversations about creating, maintaining, and strengthening welcoming and safe schools for all children. It offers a great opportunity to strategize and move forward in making your schools LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer) inclusive.
We will also be joined by Sarah and Ian Hoffman, authors of the children’s book, Jacob’s New Dress. They will be talking about how to create inclusive books and what that means for the classroom.
The event will take place at Glenview Elementary (4215 La Cresta Ave, Oakland, CA 94602) on Thursday, November 20th from 5:30 to 8:30 pm.
There is NO COST to attend the event.
Dinner and children’s activities will be provided.
We would love to have you and members of your school and district community participate! Meet children's authors, hear success stories from parents and create action plans to make your school more welcoming for LGBTQ families.
Please distribute and post copies of the enclosed flyer throughout your school community. Advance registration is preferred. Please RSVP at http://tinyurl.com/EB-LGBTQ-Townhall to let us know how many people from your site plan to attend (see our website at www.ourfamily.org for more details).
If you have any questions or would want further information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (415) 981.1960.
Our Family Coalition looks forward to your school’s participation in what promises to be an informative and valuable community event.
