Hello Students and Families,

We have finished or are about to finish all our class read-alouds for the year. 

Third Grade read Charlotte’s Web, by E.B. White – a classic tale of friendship and creativity. 

Fourth Grade read Ben & Me by Robert Lawton – a story of how Benjamin Franklin’s mouse, Amos, was actually the genius behind the man.  They are currently reading The Mouse and the Motorcycle, by Beverly Cleary.  We have a Mouse theme going on.  J

Fifth Grade read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, by Roald Dahl – great characters and fun with a huge amount of imagination.

Sixth Grade is reading Wonder, by R.J. Palacio – a moving and enlightening story of a boy with a facial difference and his experiences at school and with family and friends.

Seventh Grade is reading An Invisible Thread, by Laura Schroff – an account of the author’s unlikely friendship with a boy begging for money on the streets of New York City.

Eighth Grade is reading Harbor Me, by Jacqueline Woodson – a beautiful story of how a small group of very different students became friends and the ties that bound them together.

Our younger students continue to hear and discuss a read-aloud picture book in Library class.

To end our year, and to encourage summer reading, we will have a Buy 1 Get 1 Scholastic Book Fair beginning Tuesday, May 30.  This is not a fundraiser.  Instead, the profits are given to the students in the form of one or more extra books.

Keep Reading!
