It’s hard to believe that it is April already. The last quarter of the school year is a busy time and leaves us a mere 45 days to prepare our students for the next school year. We can’t help but smile when we see the growth that our students are making this year.
Many thanks to those of you who participated in our Spring Break Reading Challenge. We had participants from nearly every classroom! Some students logged their minutes of reading time, while others shared pictures of themselves enjoying their books in various ways and places while they were on vacation. Whether it was on a beach, snuggled up in their beds, or in some unique location, there were thousands of minutes of reading happening with our students and their families. The smiles on their faces reflected a genuine love of reading. Thanks for helping to inspire that love for books.
During the week of April 8
th through the 12
th, the Scholastic Book Fair will be visiting Central-Denison. This is a great opportunity to pick up some books for summer reading. Since it is before Easter, it may be a good opportunity to pick up a book to add as an Easter basket surprise.
We look forward to seeing you at the Central-Denison Book Tasting event on April 16
th. This event offers our families the opportunity to visit classrooms and get a “taste” of books on various topics. The reading restaurants open for customers at 5:30. Some of the tasting restaurants include The Pancake Palace, The Big Bear Bistro, and the Curious Café. There are many more to choose from, depending on your taste for books and treats.
Our students, 4K through 3
rd grade, are once again establishing themselves as authors and illustrators through the Cartonera Project. They have been working hard to strengthen their writing skills while creating their own illustrated books. The books will be on display in early May so that families can join in the celebration of learning. Invitations to the Cartonera Open House date will be sent shortly. You won’t believe the talented writers and illustrators that we have at Central-Denison. Please watch for your invitation.
The time goes by so quickly. It will be June 6
th before we know it. Thank you for sharing your children with us.
