The Classroom Chronicle – News from East Hill Elementary School – March 14

Volume 6, Issue 5

March is PARP (Pick a Reading Partner) Month!

Thank you to PTA for planning our PARP program. Here are some details:

  •  Reading log. Students are encouraged to read 15 minutes each night and keep track on the reading log calendar.
  •  Hay bales. Students can fill out the paper hay bales identifying the title and author of books they have read. The hay bales are “placed” in the red barn mural that is in our front lobby.
  • Book Swap. Bring in your gently used books to swap with other books that have been donated. Please understand that you will not get your book back. Book swap tables are in the lobby.
  •  PARP Celebration dinner. Students who read at least 20 times (on the reading log calendar) are invited, with their families, to a special PARP dinner on April 25 from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. At the dinner, students will receive a raffle ticket for great prizes!

Lost and Found

Our Lost and Found is BURSTING! Please come and identify any items that might be yours. At the end of this month, we will donate any remaining items.
