Reading Olympics and Book Sale

Reading-Olympics  1

The 2017 Reading Olympics is here! Please look in your child’s backpack this Friday for sponsor sheets and information. The envelope included is to collect donations. We are encouraging all students to read and log books throughout the month of March (literacy awareness month) and to collect donations from sponsors for the books they read. But remember, all students who read books and hand in a reading log, whether or not donations are collected, will get a prize for their wonderful efforts!

To kick off the Reading Olympics, there will be a BOOK SALE in the yard THIS THURSDAY AND FRIDAY MORNING.
Please donate your gently used books appropriate for preK through 5th grade students on those days. Books are $1 for paperbacks and $2 for hardcover. We look forward to seeing you there 🙂

Kind regards,
The Reading Olympics Team

Int’l Children’s Film Festival 2017 – Discounted tickets

This  month Discounted tickets to the Int’l Children’s Film Festival 2017 

will run for the next four weekends! Make your plans to catch the best new films for ages 3-18. Even better, our school receives a $3 discount on all tickets!

Celebrate the best new international films through the Festival’s wildly popular short film programs – Short Films One (recommended ages 5-10) and Short Films Two (recommended ages 8-14). Plus, don’t miss out on brand new feature films and Festival Flashback –

  • Rudolf the Black Cat (Japan, recommended ages 7+) – Rudolph strays from his comfortable like in Gifu, Japan to explore nearby Tokyo and discovers far more than he dreamed imaginable
  • Mr. Frog  (Netherlands, recommended ages 7+) – Every time students say the word “frog,” Sita’s teacher goes a bit green at the gills. Hop over to a screening of Mr. Frog and find out why!
  • Plus – Festival Flashback: Panda! Go Panda! – This Totoro precursor comes from the legendary team that formed Studio Ghibli (with original concepts and character designs by Hayao Miyazaki) and is seriously fun as seven year-old Mimoko gets more than she bargains for when Papa Panda and baby Panny show up at her door
