May 2011

Here we are again, wrapping up another school year that has gone by way too quickly!

This May will be hectic as always. So many events happen at the end of the year and everyone will pull together to make it the best ending to another great year.

Our 3rd & 4th graders were a great audience to author Obert Skye who visited MES on Friday, April 29. The students left looking forward to reading the Levin Thumps and Pillage series!

Move aLONG with a Good Book!
The main event for May will be Right to Read week beginning May 16th. And the main event for Right to Read week will be a visit from author and illustrator Loren Long. He will address all students on Thursday, speak to families from 6-6:30 before Young Author events and sign autographs in the library throughout the evening. Madeira's Book Shelf will also be in the library selling Loren's books at a 20% discount, and also providing Summer Bridge Workbooks and great summer reading selections.

An autographed copy of The Little Engine That Could makes a great graduation gift!!!

We are so fortunate to be wrapping up our year with our students having wonderful opportunities to meet several authors! On Friday, April 8, our first graders will go to the Madeira Public Library to meet David Ira Rottenberg, author of Gwendolyn the Graceful Pig. Third and fourth graders will be visited by Obert Skye, author of the Leven Thumps and Pillage series on Friday, April 29th. Also, Hester Bass will be presenting her award winning book The Secret World of Walter Anderson to our second graders on Friday, May 6 at the Madeira Public Library.

Special thanks to Barnes & Noble and the Madeira Public Library for bringing these wonderful authors to our students!

And finally, author and illustrator Loren Long will come to MES on Thursday, May 19. He will have sessions with all students throughout the day, and then have a family session at 6:00 pm on Young Author's Night. His books will be available for purchase at a 20% discount and Loren will happily autograph books that evening. A HUGE thank you to Loren for making this day so special for us!!
