PLD Parent Training, Reading Logs Due

Last Thursday evening we hosted our first training for parents about our student PLDs (personal learning devices). Over 100 parents attended this session.  In order for your child to take home a device, you must 1. sign the form and 2. attend a parent orientation session either here or at another school. If you choose to attend a session elsewhere, let us know and I will verify it.

We will be offering additional sessions soon.

1. Friday, October 3 @ 7:30 in the Media Center (Principal’s Coffee)

2. Wednesday, October 15 @ 6:00 p.m. in the Computer Lab– stop by our Book Fair afterwards!

Our students have been reading books galore!  Make sure you turn in your reading log today.

Happy reading!

Our Pre-K and K classes have been exploring nursery rhymes. In 1st grade we have been comparing and contrasting different fairy tales. All of our grades have been practicing finding good fit books.  2nd -5th have been embarking on different scavenger hunts.  We’ve learned about the various sections of the library, and understanding how the Dewey Decimal section is arranged.  We’ve also practiced searching in the catalog by our interests and reading level, which will help when we begin researching our nonfiction reports.
