I'll Read You Maybe?!

Nothing shows a love of reading more than a great music video! Check out our school grooving to "I'll Read You Maybe?!!"

Video made by one of our great Parent Volunteers!


November is our school Read-a-Thon! This year, students and staff are trying to read 1.5 MILLION minutes in the month of November.

Wow! That's a lot of minutes.

We are reading for fun--and to raise money for our PTA.

See if you can guess who these people are that are reading in our READ-A-THON!

Book Club Modeling

This past week, I was invited by one of our sixth grade teachers to model a proficient book club. A small group of teachers read My Rotten Redheaded Older Brother by Patricia Polacco. We then prepped quality questions and had a discussion in the middle of her classroom while the students watched us and used a rubric to score how we did. We had a wonderful discussion with a lot of meaningful questions and connections. What a great way to model how a book discussion should look like and sound like. We will be doing it again next year.
