Family Reading Night and Pumpkin Museum a A Success!

Thanks to everyone who made this year's Family Reading Night a success! On Tuesday, October 27th, the community gathered to celebrate this year's theme, a World of Stories. How appropriate for our diverse and vibrant community! Headlining was a performance from the Fehinty African Theater Ensemble featuring our very own Stone parent, Olateju Adesida, who kept the audience enraptured with live storytelling magic. Later, we enjoyed special sessions featuring story times from Asia, Ireland, and Bosnia; a primary teacher reader's theater with a Spanish flavor (and special appearance by Ms. Demonte!), and the Storybook Pumpkin Museum in the library which showcased 144 book-themed pumpkins made by our talented and creative students across grade levels (thank you to Ms. Bramble for the lovely photos, below).

The children also enjoyed getting reading passports stamped at every stop. We hope this is just the start of a lifelong reading journey. Special thanks to Ms. Sanchez, Mr. O'Boyle, the Naherovic and Gutosic families, Ms. Phelps, Ms. Yee, Ms. Switzer, Ms. Norwood, FATE, the Reading Committee and their families.
