Here's Natalie, Kindergarten student, showing off her Dr. Seuss spirit with Mrs. Fournier. We had such a great time on Dr. Seuss' Birthday, we decided to continue the celebration yesterday at Future Eagle Library Night!

Yesterday was our first Future Eagle Library Night. Future Forest North students were invited to attend our monthly Library Night to have a Dr. Seuss story time, do some Seuss-y crafts, eat a snack, use PebbleGo on the computer to learn about animals, and check out books. These Eagles are going to be in our August Kindergarten class and were already reading in our library bathtub, using shelf markers and sitting perfectly in the story pit while we learned about rhyming words! This is great experience before school starts to make friends, meet staff and familiarize themselves with our campus.

We read The Cat in the Hat and then afterwards, the kids had three craft choices. They made a variety of Cat in the Hat placemats, Grinch masks, and reading door hangers. Current and future eagles also checked out books to take home and share.

Nicol Media, the Parent Support Specialist, and I cordially invite all current and future Eagles to attend every Library Night! Parents will learn about other upcoming events at school and have access to our special collection of books on parenting. Students will have fun learning, creating and socializing. Our next event is on April 20th, and Library Nights will continue through the summer as well.
