End of Year Reading Celebration!

We will be celebrating the 2018-2019 school year on Monday, May 20th, 2019 with an all school picnic! The picnic will be from 5pm -7pm outside on the basketball courts. We will have hotdogs, chips, and pop/water for sale ($1/piece) for families to purchase. We will also have dunk tanks with different staff members making a splash! Every student that reaches his/her reading goal will get a free throw at the dunk tank. All other throws will cost $1 or $5 to press the red button. All proceeds from the event will go towards future reading celebrations for our students! Our Spring Scholastic Book Fair will also be open for families to purchase books to get a jump start on some summer reading! Let’s get together to celebrate the amazing accomplishments that our students have made this year and kick-off summer! Please RSVP here so we can plan accordingly for the picnic!

Author Visit: Marcus Emerson

We are so excited to have author and illustrator Marcus Emerson visit with our 3rd through 5th grade students on February 14th.  As part of his visit, we have the opportunity to advance purchase one of his books, The Super Life of Ben Braver, and have it signed by him!  We would like to extend the invitation to any Alward student (grades pk-5th) that would like to purchase a book and have him sign it!  Order forms for the book were sent home today.   Please send in the order form and a check for $8.58 made out to Alward PTC by Wednesday, February 13th.  Be sure to let us know who you would like the book made out to.  To find out more about the book, The Super Life of Ben Braver, click on the link below. http://www.scholastic.com/bookfairs/books/book-trailers/super-life-ben-braver
