On Monday, we celebrated our 5th annual National Day of Reading, 

formerly known as Ben Carson Reading Day to raise awareness

of the importance of everyday, leisure reading.  Look at the

excitement one of our third grade classes had to share

what they read!

Fourth Graders read an article and watched a video on Scholastic News

to learn about the recent hurricanes.  This helped students to write

letters to students in Puerto Rico for the Hispanic Heritage Month

activity. We continue to think about everyone

who was impacted by the hurricanes.

We are so lucky to be working with the SCSU Urban Fellows again this year during Harambee.  Harambee, in Swahili, means "all pull together."  This is a time where our second graders come together to sing songs, participate in a read aloud with a guest reader, and get started for the day.  Check out some highlights from our October Harambee.
