2nd Grade Family Fun Night!
Eagle River Elementary School6:00 - 7:00 p.m.
We are excited to invite you to our Family Fun Night! This Family Fun Night will be our end of year “party” as well as the culminating activity to our “One Grade, One Book” program. Each 2nd grade teacher has purchased a copy of the book Sideways Stories from Wayside School by Louis Sachar for your child to keep. We are sending the books home and asking that you read this book with your child and have it completed by our Family Fun Night on June 3rd. Please see the guidelines below. These are just guidelines, so feel free to read at your leisure (more or less). Anyone can read - your child, siblings, or you! We are encouraging families to read this book together. There will be a very fun trivia game (using Kahoot!) on Family Fun Night. We will also be reading this book together in class as a read aloud. We would like to point out that some of the children at Wayside School do not exhibit expected behaviors at school - being respectful, responsible, and safe. As a group, we have decided to use these examples as teachable moments for our students. For example, we will discuss more positive alternatives to handling situations. It is a very funny and silly book and we think that your family will enjoy reading it! Please contact us with any questions!
