Guest Readers Needed

Our parent engagement committee is excited to offer an exciting parent engagement opportunity. During the month of February, we will invite guest readers into classrooms to read a book that pertains to Black History month. For a list of possible books please click HERE. If you have another title you are interested in reading, please e-mail your book idea to our LRC director at christine.heins@d303.org to see if it can be added to our list.

There are two options for reading. Option one is to come in person and read the book to the class at the date and time that your child's teacher picked. If you are not able to make it in person at any of the dates and times, option two is to sign up for a time slot, but record yourself reading the book instead using an app called Flip (formerly called Flipgrid). The teacher will then show your video during that date and time.

To sign up we will use Sign Up Genius. Please note, you do need to create a FREE account if you do not have one in order to sign up. To sign up for a slot, please click HERE. You will be prompted to provide the name of the book you will read, and also to indicate whether you'll be coming in person or reading virtually.

If you are reading virtually via Flip, please click HERE to get started. If you need technical assistance, please email LRC Director Christy Heins at christine.heins@d303.org.

Empower News

3rd and 4th Grade Empower classes have begun our Build It! module. We are in need of various items that we can build with. These items include, but are not limited to, large cardboard boxes, tissue boxes, empty toilet paper and paper towel rolls, cereal boxes and any other interesting recyclables that you think we may be able to use. If you have anything to donate please send it to school with students or drop things at Richmond. Items can be left in the Empower room. Please no styrofoam.

Our 5th grade students have been working on our FLEX (Foreign Language Exploration) module. For this module we would love donations relating to different languages and cultures around the world. Please include a description of the item along with the language, culture and/or country it is related to.
