Weekly Memo (March 2-6)

Book Buddies

Book Fair week is the books, and what a week it was! Our students did an outstanding job helping Mrs. Lambert put on such a great fair, and my favorite thing about it is watching the 5th graders lead by example. On the final day of the fair, our class got to walk through the fair with their book buddies and sit and read with the PreK-4 kids. It was awesome!

I love how our school emphasizes the importance of reading! We’re planting seeds and developing habits that will last a lifetime!
