COFFEE CORNER – The calendar pages keep turning, and it’s time for the March Coffee Corner this Friday morning outside of the School Office from 7:45-8:30 a.m. Thank you to Kyle Meades, owner of Therapy Group of Tucson, for sponsoring this month’s event. Stop by for a cup of coffee!
LOVE of READING WEEK
March 6 through March 10 is Love of Reading Week! This year’s theme is “It’s a Small World.” Reading opens up doors to other worlds, whether it be other countries, cultures, or fantasy worlds. As with the Disneyland ride, we want to celebrate and show respect for and kindness toward all cultures and backgrounds.
We have a lot of fun-filled activities planned for the week, including:
Classroom Door Decorating Contest: Each class may decorate its classroom door in furtherance of the theme “It’s A Small World.” Decorations must be completed by Friday, March 10. Entries will be judged on Friday, and the top three winners will receive Eegees for the whole class.
Used Book Drive: Donate your gently used books to benefit the Angel Heart Pajama Project, a 501©(3) non-profit organization that provides new pajamas and books to children in need, those who are homeless, or are in foster care or shelters. Look for donation boxes around campus.
Author Presentations: Authors and illustrators from our community will be on campus throughout the week to talk about the process of writing and illustrating books. Additional information regarding the presenting authors and how to purchase their books will be available in next week’s Eagle Express.
Read a Story: Parents, grandparents, caregivers, and friends who are interested in reading a story to their child’s classroom may contact the teacher directly to arrange a time to read during the week.
Pajama and Cookie Friday (grades K-3): What could be a better end to a fun-filled week than getting to wear your pajamas to school on Friday and eating cookies while listening to a story!
SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR
Come join the fun at the Happy Camper Book Fair! The fair runs from Wednesday, March 8, to Friday, March 10. We will be open each day at 7:30 a.m., closing Wednesday and Thursday at 5 p.m. and Friday at 4 p.m. We will have a few different raffles and giveaways. Hope you can join us. S’more fun with books! If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Susie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you all for collecting Box Tops, especially since it is free money for the school. The winning class for the Lower School was the second grade, and the winner for the Upper School was the fifth grade. They both received a frozen treat. The top three collectors were Colton Rebert (first), Isabel Rebert (second), and Scarlett Street (third). They received Target gift cards. A special thank-you to all who helped me with collecting the Box Tops and counting some of them: Julia Rebert and Susie Huerta, as well as Breanne Tirrito for kicking it off.
