Art Show

This Thursday, April 26, from 5:00-8:00pm East Side will be having our annual Art Show. For details, check out the flyer in your child’s folder or the picture below.

And a hush fell over the room…

We are deep into Character Clubs this week. Each group of students chose a character to study from a series of books (on or near their reading level). Our students are paying close attention to what the character says, does, likes, dislikes, and emotions they are feeling. They then met with their clubs to chat about what they have noticed about the character and why. They are beginning to notice that the character has much of the same traits in most of he books.

Dress Fancy for Fancy Nancy!

Dear AWESOMELY FANCY PARENTS!

Our school is beyond blessed to be having a visit from Jane O’Connor, author of the amazing Fancy Nancy books tomorrow!  We are so excited that our school is getting this opportunity to experience a children’s book author in person!  To help spread our excitement AND show our appreciation and enthusiasm for Ms. O’Connor, we are asking that all students K-3, dress “fancy” tomorrow! Teachers are getting fancy, too!  You are more than welcome to use some Fancy Nancy books as inspiration!

Thanks for helping make this author visit a special one!

2018 Global Day of Play

Some of you may have seen in our newsletter and our weekly sheet that today was Global Day of Play. Many of our children were asking, “What is Global Day of Play?” and you may be wondering the same thing. So here it is, Global Day of Play is just that, time to play. Playtime that is not structured, not lead by a teacher. Children were given things to play with and off they went! It is a great time for socialization, problem solving (without adults intervening if necessary), imagination, and being with friends. While Global Day of Play encourages it to be a whole day, we only took a portion of our afternoon to PLAY! You can see through pictures that this afternoon was an absolute success! Ask you child about it tonight!
