Online book fair starting Monday
Dear Families,
We hope you all had a fantastic time last night at the Literacy Night and Book Fair. We had over 100 children participate in the activities. The Book Fair was also a big success.Thank you for coming out. For those who couldn’t make it or would like to order more books, our book fair will be available on-line early next week, hopefully Monday.
In addition, the following site will guide you to READ FOR THE RECORD . This is a scholastic site that gets your children logging the number of minutes they read this summer. Please use the link to sign up your children and be part of this exciting WORLD challenge.
Please let me know if you did not get the handouts last night about Literacy and your child.
Thanks again for supporting this important endeavor of getting our children actively reading.
Email me with any ???’s
Thanks again,
Deborah Goldstein
