New Book for a New School Year

Stay tuned for our next school-wide read. Our classes will be reading Wonder by RJ Palacio beginning in a few weeks. You are welcome to join us in reading the book at home. I promise this book will offer lots to talk about with your family.

August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid--but his new classmates can't get past Auggie's extraordinary face. Wonder, a #1 New York Times bestseller, begins from Auggie's point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community's struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance.In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope. R.J. Palacio has called her debut novel "a meditation on kindness" --indeed, every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship. Auggie is a hero to root for, who proves that you can't blend in when you were born to stand out. - from

This Means War!

We are in the middle of a war at school. A lemonade war! Students were encouraged to form teams and work together on a lemonade stand. Today they set up in the hallways and were judged by their peers on the lemonade stand and the taste and appearance of their lemonade.

Finalist will compete on Friday to determine which teams gets to run the lemonade stand at Trunk-or-Treat next week.
