Literacy Night

Today is the LAST DAY to turn in Reading Minutes (green sheet in your student packet) and any other literacy work to earn points for your house.  Top readers will be announced on Tuesday.

Literacy Night is  Tuesday, March 29th, 5-8:00 pm. We still have many spots to fill.  Please consider helping to run a station for an hour, or even split an hour with a friend or spouse.  We ALSO have spots for Silver Mesa Alumni to come serve as “prefects” at our Study Hall.  We’d love to have some former SM students help out.  BONUS–see your old teachers! 

We will have food trucks at Literacy Night starting at 5:00pm, and the book fair will be open.  We’d love to have you join us for:  Fiore Pizza, Waffle Luv, Smoke-a-Billy BBQ, Sabor Colombiano & Lollipuff.  Plus, Honeydukes will be selling Butterbeer and other fine delectables beginning at 6:00pm.  🙂  

Students can earn points for their houses by attending and participating in the classes at literacy night.  We also will be continuing to collect socks for House Elves (and our local homeless shelter) through the night, all which will earn points for your house.

House Cup Winners will be announced on Wednesday, March 30th.

Congratulations to Jason Moss, our Spelling Bee winner, and Brooklyn Cone, our 2nd place winner!   Together, they earned 100 points for Ravenclaw!  And a shout out to all of our participants who spelled so well under pressure!

The aim with this program is to provide consistent, sensitive and approved health and maturation instruction districtwide. All girls and boys presentations are conducted by Carrie Ann Kemp, a popular professional speaker who has been educating and entertaining young audiences, and their parents, for more than 20 years. Families may attend the presentation that best fits their schedule. Parents are advised to leave younger siblings at home.  A schedule of dates and locations is at the end of this email.
