FAMILY READING NIGHT and DR. SEUSS’ BIRTHDAY
Thursday, March 2. 6:30 – 7:30pm
Please join us for our annual celebration of Dr. Seuss' birthday and enjoy an evening of free literary fun with your children!
Family Reading Night activities are led by our staff. Each teacher reads from a favorite book and then leads a project inspired by the story and designed for family members to do together. This year’s books include, but are not limited to; Monster Trouble, Rainbow Fish, Eloise in Paris, Johnny Appleseed, A Wocket in My Pocket, The Mysterious Tadpole, One Plastic Bag, Oh The Thinks You Can Think, How I Became a Pirate, and One Green Apple.
There are two sessions. The first starts at 6:30pm and the second starts at 7:00pm. Please note that folks MUST sign up beforehand, and children MUST be accompanied by an adult in each session. Younger siblings are also welcome (just be sure to sign them up, too!). Each adult/child pair may sign up for two sessions. www.SignUpGenius.com/go/60B0D4FA5AF23A20-family1
At 7:30, we will all gather in the cafeteria for birthday cake.
We hope to see you there!
Back by popular demand: During the school day, children may dress as their favorite literary character (some restrictions apply). Teachers will clarify expectations for their class, but your child should 1) bring a copy of the book, 2) be prepared to read a favorite passage out of it, 3) be able to engage in regular learning and physical activity in their costume. While comic books, Disney books, and graphic novels are great fun to read, we request that your child choose a more "literary" literary character.
Saturday, March 4. 8 – 10 am
Enjoy a hearty breakfast with family and friends and let the 8th graders clean up for you! Remember, advance purchase is necessary. Tickets are available from any 8th grader, the office, or by order. This event is an 8th grade Ashland Fundraiser.
Thank you for your support!
