Elementary News: Reading Week & Spirit Week



Wow, what an eventful week last week! Thank you to all the educators and especially to the Library Team for organizing Reading Week. Taylor Mali was a big hit among all of the students. I saw several students about campus who were inspired and scribbled out poems during recess break. The younger students thoroughly enjoyed Lamine Diémé and their beautiful story quilts are on display in the primary pagoda area. The French Team enjoyed a variety of guest parent readers.


It was fun to see the teachers and students all decked out for Spirit Week. They showed their enthusiasm by wearing their school colors, their wacky tacky gear and so much more! We had lots of guest readers in the classrooms and everywhere I went, reading was a celebration.


Here is a quick video about how to encourage students to read at home. Remember that in our Elementary Home Learning Program we do expect students to read or be read to in any language for thirty minutes each night.
