We'd also like to thank all of the students who participated in the week-long dress up days.  We saw some great looking costumes & hair-do's.  Dress up days included red & white day, Whoville hair or Daisy-head Mayzie, crazy socks for Fox in Socks, crazy colors for My many colored days or a favorite book costume, and finally an animal for If I ran the zoo.

Please take a look at some of the pictures we took this week.  Others photos can be found on a bulletin board near the front school entry.

Our Read Across America & Dr. Seuss celebration is a reminder and encouragement for everyone to keep reading, and for parents to read regularly to their children.  Vist your libraries and find something for everyone.

Each year, we have opportunities for parents and other adults to volunteer to read, such as during our Read Across America / Dr. Seuss celebration.  If you would be interested in helping us sometime, please contact Mrs. Klein.
