March Reading Challenge

Monday will be the official launch of our March Reading Challenge, which will run until Monday, April 9 (21 days). While the main goal of this challenge is to get kids excited about reading for pleasure, this year we are going to invite the broader community to support students’ efforts by donating to the school library. The money raised (per book or a flat amount) will help fund author visits and other library activities for this year and beyond. The fundraising part is totally streamlined and will be hosted by a site called You will be able to reach out to friends and family by email, Facebook, and Twitter, and any other ways you and your child choose to – online or offline. Each child will have their own personal reading goal and there will also be a school wide reading goal. We’ll provide a way at school for kids to track their reading based on their goals.

The Fairy

by Vera in Primary, From The Poetry Studio

My long hair paints the blue sky,
the color of gold.
One red rose is in my hair, making my hair
as beautiful as the sun rising.
If people need help,
I help them with my loving heart.
If people are having war,
I spread my magic kindness all over the world.

Winter Sports

Another successful winter sports program! Many thanks to our volunteers and all the people who went the extra mile to make this happen.

“Date” with a book

The excitement was palpable after an announcement at Monday’s all school sing that there were books in the library looking for a “blind date.” In just three days, 41 books from the blind date display were checked out and three of those have already been read and returned! That means that more than half of the students in school participated. Ask your child if s/he chose a blind date book to read over vacation, and if so, what they thought of it.
