Reading Festival Week and Field Trip Reminder

This week is going to be one fun week at school.  Today we kicked it off with an assembly where Mrs. combs introduced this years Books of the Month.  We then watched a skit written by Mrs. Ray, one of our 5th grade teachers.  The children really enjoyed it!

Tomorrow Mr. O'Meara and a Naval Officer from NAS Jax will be reading to the class for our Dudes do Read day!  The students love listening to stories and it's great to listen to men read, especially for our boys! 

On Wednesday the children will be marching in "Our Favorite Book" parade.  I sent a letter home last week but as a reminder I would like the children to dress up as their favorite book character.  No store bought costumes are necessary.  It should be a fun and creative costume.  Please send in the book your child is dressing as so that they can hold it during the parade!  Parents are welcome to come and watch the children and take lots of pictures.
On Thursday we will be walking around the halls of our 4th and 5th grades Wax Museum.  This is a wonderful project put on by the upper grades and 2nd and 3rd grade get to learn about many famous people in history from George Washington to Michael Jordan.  The kids will have fun telling you all about it on Thursday night!  

Friday we have no school!  Mrs. Pacciano will be there cleaning, planning and organizing!  Enjoy the 3 day weekend!   

Don't forget that when you come back to school on Monday we will be having our 1st field trip to UNF for a nature walk.  Reminder:  wear jeans, sneakers and your blue Bartram Springs t-shirt.  If you do not have a Bartram Spring shirt maybe another blue shirt will work.  Bring a bagged lunch and an extra drink.  We might get thirsty after all that walking!
