Flat Stanley Activity

A yellow note is coming home in the January 22nd Monday Folder about an activity we are doing that goes along with the book, Flat Stanley. Please send back the yellow "Flat Stanley" sheet with an address by Friday, January 25th. The address should be to a friend or a family member who would be willing to take some photos, write about some adventures with the "Flat Gnome" paper cut out we send them and return it to school.

Walk to Read in Support of Libraies of Love

Friday, January 18th began our school-wide global outreach project, Walk to Read, intended to teach our children about philanthropy by raising money in support of Libraries of Love. Libraries of Love is a local non-profit, started by the former LME librarian, that promotes literacy by creating libraries in Kenya and Uganda, Africa.

Your student brought home a donation envelope and letter explaining this project. The fundraiser will run from January 18th until February 1st. Our goal for the Walk to Read program is 100% participation and we would like to raise $7000, which if every student brought in $10, we could easily reach this goal! Participation includes collecting donations from friends and family and/or bringing a hardback book to donate to Libraries of Love at the Walk to Read Finale on Friday, February 1st.

​​​Please consider talking with your child about this program and making a donation towards this worthy cause. Click here for more information on the Walk to Read program at LME.
