Schoolwide Read
SES extremely excited to host our first ever Schoolwide Read during the month of November. In November, every family in our school will receive a copy of the same book (shhhh...we will announce the title of the book in a school wide event). The idea is to focus on building a community of readers. Families will commit to reading sections of the book together every night. It's a chance to unplug and reconnect over the shared experience of a terrific book.
Every member of our faculty and staff will also be reading the book. We will be hearing great conversations throughout the day about what is happening in the book. We can't wait to hear about the conversations that are happening in your home, too!
Why should you participate? It's going to be FUN! Also, this is a great opportunity for the adults in our school community (parents, staff and faculty) to MODEL what being a good reader to our students. So, stay tuned for more exciting news as we approach the unveiling of the title of our book!

I just loved reading all of the BFG's labels for the dreams. Which dream would you most like to have?

I can't believe the other giants are afraid of Jack from Jack and the Beanstalk! Boy, did the BFG play a good trick on them.

I just love Dream Country! It was so much fun to visit and learn all about the different types of dreams the BFG catches. I wonder what kind of trick he is playing on the Fleshlumpeater with that trogglehumper.
