Students and staff are encouraged to dress up as a favorite book character on Friday, February 15th. If your child chooses to wear a costume, we ask that you avoid costumes that depict violence and have guns, knives, swords, blood, etc. Costumes also need to be culturally sensitive. Students should arrive at school dressed as their book character.
From February 11-21 students will have the opportunity to bring in gently used books (picture books and chapter books welcome). From 9:20-9:40 teachers will allow students to turn in these books to tables near the 5th grade classrooms. For every 2 books a student brings in, he/she will receive 1 ticket to be cashed in for a different gently used book at Reading Night. Bring as many books in as you wish.
