Our annual Food Drive has begun!!

DWE has partnered with Round Rock Serving Center to help provide food for their pantry. No perishable items please. Each item brought into your classroom will count as a point. Each classroom will compete with their grade level classrooms.

Our food drive will end on November 15th.

Many thanks!

Readasaurus Book Club

November / December: Graphic Novels Thursday, Dec. 7th 2:55-3:45

You may think graphic novels are easy to read because they are just a bunch of pictures, but reading a graphic novel actually takes tons of thinking and making of inferences. Let's discuss the ways the authors of graphic novels use pictures and other techniques to help us understand their story, and then let's try our hand at writing and illustrating our own comics!

Readasaurus is a monthly book club to promote an excitement for reading with 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders! During monthly book club meetings after school, we will discuss our reading as a community and continue our learning through a hands-on activity.
