May 11, 2015

Wow! It's May and the school year is marching quickly to a close. As usual, things are very busy with lots of events happening every week. Just a few weeks ago, we had a visit by Pete The Cat. He is the character from the famed Pete The Cat Series of books written by Eric Litwin and illustrated by James Dean. He was accompanied by guests that read several of the Pete The Cat books to our pre-K and kindergarten students. This visit was made possible by Smart Start and we are so appreciative of their work to have Pete The Cat come and encourage our students in reading. Our Elementary Battle of the Books (EBOB) team competed in the first annual District EBOB competition on April 25. We are pleased to say we came in second place, but are already gearing up for a great battle for next year. The list of books has already been release and students are starting to read to get ready! Last week students in first and second grade had field trips to Sylvan Heights Waterfowl Park in Scotland Neck. What an incredible field trip! Students enjoyed seeing many types of birds up close. We encourage you to take a trip to there if you have never been. Next week, our last Family Reading Night of the school year is being held. This is a great opportunity to come out and read with your child and watch as they take Accelerated Reader Tests. We look forward to seeing you! Also, Field Day will be held next Friday. Come out and root on your child as they enjoy a day of physical activity. Upcoming Events May 12 Family Reading Night 6pm May 15 Field Day
