Vasanthi's Class Photo Day

Photos Day is Wednesday, October 26th at 9:30am!  Bring your smiles!

Book Buzzes and Reading Buddies

For the past two weeks we have been hearing about some incredible book titles!  Every share has been different and exciting!  We've heard about Fantasy, Historical Fiction, Realistic Fiction, Graphic Novels and more.  We've noticed that a lot of us have put in tremendous efforts!  We've seen colorful, detailed, organized posters.  Some Book Buzzers even dressed up!  I know I am excited to read Understood Betsy, Thank You Tia!  

We continue to have a fabulous time with our book buddies, every Thursday at 1PM.  We are getting to know them better and every week they are getting better and better at their reading.  I like working with younger kids.  I really enjoy reading to them.  4th graders don't always get the opportunity to read to younger students.  It is helping me get better at reading aloud.

Stone Soup

Stone Soup for Everyone! 

Two of the benefits of Food Education Every Day is that students share their learning experience by involving families in the fun and they then can enjoy a creation with their classmates. This fall, we are having a school wide "Stone Soup" event, in which we are asking students to bring a single vegetable from home, just like the villagers in the folk story. They can bring them anytime next week, 10/17 through the 20th (no school on 10/21). They have the choice among a potato, onion, carrot, broccoli, green cabbage, etc.

Becky has said she can make any vegetable work!

Then during lunch on Tuesday October 25, every student will be able to enjoy the soup made possible by everyone's contribution!

Thank you for your support,
Erica Frey-Delaportas
SCS FEED (Food Education Every Day) Coordinator
