The annual Field of Readers took place last night at the MISD Multipurpose Stadium; marvelous stories, books, and fun were enJOYed by all! Special thanks goes out to all the MISD Library Media Specialists (especially our own Melissa Bolgiano) and the Instructional Technology Director, Nancy Bergvall. Football players, band members, PALs, Ready-Set-Teach interns, teachers, instructional aides, parents, and countless volunteers manned the Book Fair, face-painting, and author station. Speaking of the author, our fourth and fifth graders thoroughly enJOYed the visiting author, P. W. Catanese, yesterday during his highly engaging and informative writer’s session! He graciously signed copies of his book, Happenstance Found, for those who purchased it last night. Thanks, Mr. Catanese!
One of the highlights for our readers was the “panther tunnel.” Readers lined up with great enthusiasm to run through the giant panther with their football heroes (who have been our reading partners this season each Friday!). One young friend stopped me to say, “It’s dark in there but we followed the smoke!” Thanks, Panther Football Boosters, for giving your time to bring great laughs and fun to our readers last night!
We are blessed to have so many reading models in our lives everyday here at Miller. With the holidays approaching, here’s hoping you take a few moments to cuddle and enJOY a great book together! Happy Reading! 🙂
