Students were excited to dress the part of the "Snow Many Books" Book Fair this week
COLD WEATHER UNIFORM REMINDERS
When it is 50 degrees or below, girls in K-5 may wear Khaki pants (with a belt) and 6-8 may wear navy slacks (with a belt) NO Legging style pants. Girls may wear closed toe tights in black, navy, green or white with their skirts and jumpers. SWEATPANTS for PE should be navy; they do not need to be logoed. Sweat shirts, jackets and hoodies must be logoed with the Epiphany logo to be worn in the classroom. For recess, students may wear other outerwear of any color.
PILLSBURY EDITOR'S ALL-TIME FAVORITE PIES
While the editors of Pillsbury are tasked with tasting, developing, baking and photographing all the new and exciting pie recipes you see on-site, there are a handful of pies that have a particularly special place in their hearts.

From the Principal's Desk
This week we have been enjoying the “Snow Many Books” book fair. It is so wonderful to see how excited the students get when the book fair arrives. They line up at the library door in the morning with baggies containing their money. Lots of the students bring their own personal savings to make some purchases. Parents and grandparents alike come by and shop with the kids as well.
On Wednesday, the ASTRA Club, Mrs. Romero, Mrs. Higgins and myself, embraced the theme of the book fair and dressed in our character costumes. The children enjoyed seeing us dressed as Elsa, Anna, Jack Frost, Olaf, snow princesses, snow men and women, reindeer and penguins!
I remember watching Reading Rainbow on PBS as well as other PBS cartoons that were based upon books like Arthur, Clifford the Big Red Dog and Curious George, with my own children as well as children at Epiphany over the years. Listening to wonderful stories and then watching the emerging readers learn to select and read their own books was and still is so exciting for me. Reading is such a critical skill and one that takes practice. Students become better readers by consistently practicing their reading skills. Their vocabulary becomes more expansive through their exposure to progressively more difficult text. Whether it is a newspaper, magazine, trade book, or favorite book of your choosing, I encourage you to read with your child and to model a lifelong love of reading.
As we bundle up in our favorite blankets on these cold fall and winter nights, I encourage you to pick out a good book and read to or with your child. Young or older, nothing is better than an interesting story and someone to share it with!
Have a great weekend.
