We are talking about these topics in school, as they arise - I hope that you will also take some time to talk to your child about current events in a way that is appropriate for you and your family (see next section on News for Kids).

North Carolina Children's Book Award
Sky class read the 10 picture book nominees back in November (and they've been patiently waiting for the rest of the school to catch up!).
We have just finished reading our 7th book in River class. We should be voting sometime this month!
Joanna is reading the nominees to Mountain class during lunch. Students also read them on their own during library time to get a closer look.
Forest class read their last nominee this week and will be voting next Tuesday!
We participate in this award to not only promote reading picture books at all ages but also to create a shared lexicon of books in Lower School. We're excited to discuss these books with each other, across classes and grade levels!
