BOOK FAIR - MONDAY 11/6 (TOMORROW!)
Our class shopping day is MONDAY, NOV. 6th (TOMORROW). Please send money in with your students if they would like to purchase books. Also, there are a number of books available that we would LOVE to have added to our classroom library. Most are less than $10. If you would like to send your child in with a little extra cash to choose a book to donate to our class library, the kids (and their book-loving teacher) would be over the moon!! We generally tag the book to honor the student who donated it.
Some of our "wish list" titles are:
Turning 15 on the Road to Freedom
In the Shadow of the Sun
Sink or Swim
10 True Tales: World War II Heroes
The Plot to Kill Hitler
The Boys Who Challenged Hitler
The Seventh Most Important Thing
Sunny Side Up
Swing It, Sunny
The Killing Seas
The Eighth Day
A Dog's Way Home

Humanitarian Project #1 - DUE Tues, Nov. 28th!
Year-Long Humanitarian Projects
• This year students will have the opportunity to show 3 different humanitarian acts within the community.
• Each project will be documented with a picture of the student performing the act/event and a short paragraph. These will be displayed all year to celebrate our acts of good will.
• Between Mrs. O'Rourke's and Ms. Hill’s class, it is our goal to perform 300 acts within our community.
• We will also be brainstorming different project ideas within our school and school community.
