Book Fair and Parent Conferences
Parent Conferences will be from February 27th to March 3rd. We will have our *Book Fair at the Vena Library on the same dates, from 12:30 P.M. to 1:30 P.M.
Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that provides the books kids want to read. It's a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Reading for pleasure inside and outside of school has real and long-lasting benefits. It unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Please make plans to come to our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child's reading habits.
*Can't wait? You can also shop online. The online book fair is from February 15 to March 7.
Read Across America at Vena
Vena Avenue Elementary is an avid supporter of the National Education Association’s Read Across America project--a literacy campaign designed to motivate children to read by making it fun. We will all be celebrating the joy of reading and honoring Dr. Seuss from March 13 to March 17, 2017 with several activities:
There will be a Read Across America form in this week's Thursday Folder (February 23). Please read it and return it to your child's teacher if you would like to help us make this a memorable event.
Thank you in advance for your support!
