 IN THE SCHOOLHOUSE

Coming Monday!  Book Character Day! 

One of the great traditions here at Leverett Elementary School is Book Character Day. This is a nice alternative to celebration of Halloween, and fits perfectly for this community of voracious readers. Book Character Day has some simple guidelines. Children may come as a character from a movie if the movie was derived from a book. It has to been a book first. That may be the reason your child has been asking “But was it a book first?” if you’ve been discussing costumes. 

The other basic reminders about costumes:
            • No masks that cover the whole face
            • No weapons as props
            • Costumes should not be overly scary or gory 

Most of the staff don costumes for the day, and there are often teachers who decide to be various characters from the same book. Kate Rice and I are planning to be the principal characters from a classic child’s book. You’ll have to stop by to see for yourself! If you are a parent who drops off or picks up your child, we encourage you to assume a book character persona, too! 

This morning, I got a brief glimpse of the adventure that second graders had at the Mystic Aquarium yesterday. They were full of enthusiasm, and had way more to tell me than my brief visit to the classroom would allow. But the many “I learned that…” or “Did you know…?” statements and questions they shared with me certainly showed the potential of a great field trip as a learning tool. How fortunate we are to have the support of the PTO to fund these learning excursions! 

As I write, parent conferences are underway throughout the school. This is an incredibly valuable time for parents to sit with their child’s teacher and get an overview of the child’s progress. I hope that every parent or caregiver will participate in these conversations, which offer insight into the learning that goes on every day. 

With the cooler air upon us, please remind your children to come with sufficient layers of clothing to keep warm during the increasingly chilly recesses. 

A recent poll of the fourth-sixth grades showed that about 80% of them think that I’ll be making my first ‘no-school’ phone call before the December break. Is this wishful thinking? Stay tuned!

Talk to your college adviser about observing an elementary school classroom and a high school classroom. Talk to teachers from each field. Talk to your family-my family knew I would make a great elementary school teacher, but they would not have encouraged me to teach high school, because they knew I would not be right for the job.
