Thank you for attending our Fall Literacy Night!

Please join us on Tuesday, October 29, 2019 from 5:30-7PM for our Reading Fun Night.  Feel free to wear a costume of your favorite book character for this event!  Pizza, water, and cookies will be provided from 5:30-6PM followed by fun filled activities from 6-7PM.  Dinner will be held in the cafeteria, and activities will be held on the first floor of the school.

During Literacy Night, we will also be holding our first Pumpkin Decorating Contest.  The contest is open to all students in grade PreK through 4th.  Participants should select any character from his/her favorite book.  Then, decorate any size pumpkin (must be able to be carried by your child) with materials of your choice, such as markers, paint, or fabric.  Use your imagination!  You can begin bringing in decorated pumpkins the week of October 21st.  (The last day to bring in pumpkins will be Monday, October 28th.)  All pumpkins will be displayed on the stage in our cafeteria on Friday, October 25th.  Judging will be on Monday, October 28th.  A winner for each grade level will be announced during our Literacy Night on Tuesday, October 29th.

Sign up forms for this event will be sent home during the week of Oct. 7th.  Completed forms are due by Tuesday, October 22nd.
