Hats Off to Good Books
With spring in the air, it is a great time for a hat parade! Your child will need to choose a book on grade level to read aloud to the class - wearing a hat. He/She will decorate the hat to complement the theme of the chosen book. After your child’s turn, be sure to keep the book and hat to send back for our Hat Parade. Remember this is for a reading grade, so have your child practice for fluency and expression. Be sure to keep the reading time to 10 minutes or less. Our Hat Parade will be on March 23rd at 8:30 a.m.
Please continue to submit Box Tops to your teacher throughout the school year to earn money for your child’s classroom.
Toilet paper rolls needed for a spring project! Please send 2 or 3 in with your child. Thanks!
