Boo! Books

Boo! Books is a longstanding tradition that connects literacy with the spirit of Halloween. The students celebrated with donuts and cider this morning. Students who read their Boo! Book were able to also make a Halloween book mar and enjoy a book talk time discuss their book. Many thanks to Mrs. Freed and Mrs. Perrotta for all their planning and all the parent volunteers who helped!

Pink Tag Day

Today Student Council held a TAG Day to benefit the charity “In the Name of the Mother." This charity, sponsored by Catholic Charities, supports mothers who are battling the terrible effects of cancer. Students brought in $2.00 and wore the color PINK instead of the school uniform. All proceeds will go to “In the Name of the Mother.”
