Celebrity Readers Day

The fifth grade students are participating in a project in which they are planning a Celebrity Readers’ Day for our school. In Technology class with Ms. Vick, students discussed the characteristics desired in guest celebrities and researched contact information for them. In their Language Arts classes with Mrs. Laubach and Miss Mann, they drafted and revised letters of invitation. Students then typed these letters of invitation on school letter head, printed, and addressed envelopes. Our letters were mailed as we were leaving for the Winter Holiday Break.

Now, our school is receiving the responses to our invitations. This is an exciting time for our fifth graders as we are tracking our responses. We are hopeful to have a celebrity reader for each of our 35 homerooms. As of January 19, 2012 we are halfway to our goal! So far, some of the guests who will be coming are our mayor, fire chief, police chief, retired sports athletes, business leaders, and more!

Our students are continuing to prepare for our big celebration. In February, Mrs. Dalton will assist the children in researching the necessary etiquette lessons to be the student ambassadors for our guests. They will learn how to introduce themselves to someone, introduce the celebrity guest to the selected class, and facilitate our guests around school while here.

We look forward to our big day and hope to have pictures to share soon!
