LUNCH TIME READERS: It’s the perfect time for your 3rd, 4th or 5th graders to start thinking about getting involved in Lunchtime Readers! It will begin the week of January 25, 2016. Your student should have brought home a form. Fill it out and choose a book with your son or daughter. Once all the forms are in, groups will be put together and assigned to a parent volunteer (let us know if YOU would like to volunteer to lead a group!). Click on Lunchtime Readers Book Choices to see which books have been chosen, along with links describing the books and their lexile levels (you can get this info from your child’s teacher). For more information on this wonderful program, contact Soumya Subash (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Praveena Nishal (email@example.com).
The Environmental Awareness Committee: We will be holding two drives in December/early January. One is our annual recycling of holiday lights drive. If you have any old and/or non-working holiday lights, please drop them off in the designated boxes in the Commons area starting December 1st. Secondly, we are having a used board games drive. We are requesting any gently used board games with all pieces included. These board games will be given to our teachers that are in need of some new board games, especially for indoor recess. Please leave these donations in the marked box in the Commons area, too. Both drives will be taking place December 1st –January 8th. Also, note that we will be holding a book drive, used shoe drive and marker drive in the spring. If you do a “fall/winter” cleaning over the Thanksgiving or Holiday break, please be sure to hang on to these items for our collections in April. Questions? Please contact Michelle Derochowski (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Angela Zulaski (Ajz95331@yahoo.com)
