On the "Red Carpet" at Mt. Eagle Elementary School...
Children at Mt. Eagle Elementary School in Fairfax County East won "Oscars" at their winter book party, "A Red Carpet Event." After picking their books, they had a chance to stand on the red carpet with an Oscar as the local "paparazzi" or "mamarazzi" snapped photos! Hearing that they could keep their books forever, these four-year-old Head Start children dashed to the book tables, selected their books of choice, and inscribed their names. Their wiser first grade friends knew all about RIF. One boy even remembered the title of the book he had picked last year, The Boy Who Loved Math. No surprise that he is enrolled in fourth grade math as a first grader!
