Garden and Art Fair – Saturday May 3rd


Garden and Art Fair - Saturday May 3rd The Garden Fair is only 25 days away and the PTA needs your help to make it a success!! These big fundraisers need lots of volunteers to make them work and volunteering is a GREAT way to get to know other parents. Please sign up for a two-hour slot and help the PTA raise the money that we need to pay for the programs that benefit all the students at Lewis and make new friends! The sign up sheets are posted outside Tracy’s office, on the PTA bulletin board outside the dip, and at the other school entrances/exits. We also have a SignUpGenius for those of you who can’t make it in to school. The address is: http://goo.gl/xOXSCK:

Staff Picks: Favorite Books

Throughout the year we will be highlighting favorite books selected by our staff members...


Title: Charlotte’s Web Author: E.B. White Staff Member: Mr. Colvin

"Before the movie, before the cartoon, was the book. The book and I are about the same age, having both arrived in the early 1950s. I was in fourth grade in Mrs. Stansell's class in Gold Beach, Oregon and she read several novels during the year, but the one that hooked me was Charlotte's Web. I have read it to every class I have ever taught since I started teaching. Plus I read it to my own two kids when they were around 9 or 10.
