Welcome back, Wildcats! Hope you had a great spring break!
Today author Nancy Krulik visited our Media Center. She shared excepts from each of her series, Katie Kazoo Switcheroo, George Brown, Class Clown, and the Magic Bone Series. She spoke with the 2nd grade about all aspects of the writing process. She stressed the importance of revising your work.
An anonymous benefactor donated money that enabled us to purchase five of Ms. Krulik’s books for each classroom. Another Wildcat friend’s donation helped Mrs. Sugiuchi purchase complete sets of all three series for our SLMC. We are all thrilled to read our gifts! Thanks to Janet Geddis, Rachel Watkins, and Will Walton from Avid Bookshop for arranging this visit and for making it a success!
Next week we are hosting our spring book fair. We are already excited about the books- we’ve been watching and discussing different book trailers this week. If you or someone you know would like to volunteer for the book fair, you can sign up here.
Next Monday @ 8:45 we will be hosting the 5th grade Battle of the Books in the cafeteria. May the most well-read team win!
This Saturday, seven of our students will be participating in “Are You Smarter Than an Athens Grade Schooler?,” a fun, family-friendly event benefiting Books for Keeps, an organization that provides free books to students. This May all of our students will be receiving books from Books for Keeps.
