End of October Reminders

We have a busy week ahead at McGovern so I am sending out a short reminder about all the upcoming events!

Scholastic Book Fair

The Scholastic Book Fair is at McGovern this week from Monday to Thursday, October 24 - October 27. Children and their parents have been invited to attend during a half hour session (which is most often the regularly scheduled library period). During the fair, reasonably priced books are available to purchase for now or for gift giving. There is no pressure at all to buy, and in fact children who do not want to buy simply attend library period.

The Book Fair is also open for evening hours on Tuesday, October 25th from 3:30 - 7 p.m.


Family Literacy Night

We are celebrating the great things that happen in the elementary classroom during readers workshop on Tuesday night, October 25th. We are calling the event A Peak into Your Child's Classroom and all students from preschool to grade one and their parents/guardians are invited to attend.

The Pre-K and K event is from 5 - 6 p.m. and the First Grade event runs from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. We will welcome you in the cafeteria at the beginning of each session and then send you off to different stations to see, among other things, a Fundations lesson, a mini-lesson, an interactive read aloud,and a Razz Kids introduction. Please plan on attending this fun evening with your child!

Reading Support

In between the two Tuesday night events, our Reading Specialists have invited the parents of the children they service to meet with them.

Mrs. Leary and Mrs. Rutowicz have personally invited the K and grade one parents of the children with whom they work to meet in the Reading Room from 6 - 6:30 to learn more about the LLI program and the reading support they provide.
