Remember to revisit your assigned book(s) and review them along with the list of questions we already have for them. Create at least 20 more quesitons so we can find out some new possible questions for the next round. Email them to me by January 31. I'm hoping some of the schools will also email me their questions so we can practice from them as well.
The snack schedule will be as follows:
January 31 - Krishnan
February 4 - Satoskar
I'll be sending out another information packet about the next round in Carrollton. If you are interested, please plan to go out to lunch with us after the competition that day before we head back home. Should be another exciting day.
Thank you all for coming to our fall book fair and supporting our media program. All proceeds go to purchasing supplies and resources for use by Shallowford Falls students and staff. Our fair was very successful thanks to all of our generous parents.
No book fair could take place without the help from a great group of volunteers. Christy Richards and Lisa Podolski are our book fair volunteer coordinators, and we were so fortunate to have such a great group of parents volunteering their time to set up, stock shelves, help the students create wish lists, man the cash registers and take down the fair.
We would also like to thank Anne Baker for coming up with the ideas for the decorations and spending countless hours creating her vision. Thanks to Debbie Buckley's sister, Cynthia, for decorating our horses for Mrs. Angelle and Mrs. Spiva's "joust."
Thanks also to Mrs. Angelle and Mrs. Spiva for being up for anything to promote our book fair. We appreciate Kim Puckett and Lindsey Drew for being our pages and Trish Douglas for letting us invade her space and handling the sound. Our teachers were great to be so flexible with their schedules to fit the joust in with not much notice. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!
