Author Shane Peacock visits South Slope/ BCSD

On October 30th author Shane Peacock visited our school. He told us that as a young child he didn’t really like to read, but he loved stories. He told us to read what we’re interested in and also write what we’re interested in.  We also learned about an amazing Canadian, The Great Farini, and how he crossed Niagara Falls. Mr. Peacock read his picture book, The Artist and Me, to some of the classes.  He also read from Death in the Air, the second in the Boy Sherlock Holmes series, and left us wanting to hear more. Come and check out his books from the library!

DEAR Day Success!

What a great day we had: pajamas, stuffed animals and reading! Thanks to everyone for participating.  Reading is a beautiful thing!

Thank you!!!!

THANK YOU!!! Thank you to all the parents and families who visited and volunteered at the book fair.  We raised over $1700 in product commission that will be used to buy new resources for our library.  Our next fair will be in February.  See you then!
