Week of October 15-19
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Homework help: Homework help is 2:30-3:30. Sixth grade homework help will be in Mrs. Wennberg's room on Mondays and Wednesday and in Mrs. Lorenzi's room on Tuesdays and Thursdays. There is no homework help on Friday. This year, in order to better meet the needs of our students in junior high, homework help will be a SILENT study hall. It will be great for those needing a quiet place to work. The teacher will also be available if assistance is needed.
Monday, October 15 is Pink Free Dress for $1. Proceeds will be donated for breast cancer research.
Oct. 22-26 is the book fair. My son, Lucca Lorenzi, is having a having a book drive to benefit Lucile Packard Children's Hospital-Stanford, as part of his Pack It Up For Packard Service Project. The story corner at the new hospital needs new books. Also, the hospital would like to send each patient home with a new book. Buy a book and the book fair and donate it. Not only does the hospital benefit, but so does OLM's library. All proceeds from the book fair go towards buying new books for the OLM library. There will be a wish list for the hospital at the book fair, or you can simply buy a book for your age group that you think a patient might enjoy. Wish list books will stock the hospital's story corner, and other books purchased will be given to patients to take home. Thank you for helping to pay it forward!
