Our second annual Storybook Festival is this Friday, October 30, and we cannot wait! Each grade level has a unique schedule of events planned, but we will all spend the day listening to, reading, and participating in activities drawn from some of the best children’s stories.

October 30th is an early-release Friday; drop-off and pick-up will be unaffected by the Storybook Festival.
Leave a Legacy

As part of our Storybook Festival, we are encouraging all students to bring a book from our carefully-curated Amazon Wish List to donate to our school library. Our K-2nd Art Teacher Ms. Lucy Stariha has designed this year's beautiful custom bookplate, which can be inscribed with your child's name and placed on the inside cover of donated books as a lasting testament to the generosity of your family. Distance Learners may pick up their bookplates and drop off donated books at the front desk. Additional bookplates are also available at the front desk.
Costumes

What character from classical literature is your child coming dress as for Storybook Festival? Please remember that since students will be wearing the costumes during the school day or on their synchronous Zooms, there are a number of guidelines that we will ask you to follow. Characters from popular culture will not be allowed. Click here for detailed guidelines.
Storybook Festival for Our Distance Learners

This year, we want to be sure to include our Distance Learners in the festivities alongside our in-person students. Distance Learners are invited to view a special pre-recorded performance of the play being put on by our Specials teachers that will be posted to Google Classroom, make an at-home craft, and log on to Zoom to participate alongside their in-person classmates. Your child's teacher will be communicating the times and details of those Zoom meetings. For more on how Distance Learners can participate, visit greatheartsirving.org/storybookfestival.
