Calling all 4th and 5th grade readers
Read No Talking by Andrew Clements and join a lunch/recess bookclub in January. Student led, with great discussion, a craft and mock trial of boys versus girls no talking! Check out the book for the winter break and join the fun in January.
From the Lunchroom:
This is a friendly reminder to look for an email from the PTA at 7:00 on Sunday evening if you are interested in signing up for a mini course.
Snow Gear Needed For Successful Recess!
Next week is projected to be even colder. Don't forget to send your student to school with appropriate (and labeled!) winter weather gear. Many students are coming to school without gloves or hats. On snowy or wet winter days, boots and snowpants are necessary to play in the field (otherwise they will remain on the blacktop).
