Young Women's League of Reading fundraiser!

Looking for something to do on an early Sat morning during what will surely be a very wet Spring?

On Sat, March 28th, the The Young Women’s League of Reading will be hosting a private showing of the movie Home, featuring Jim Parsons, Steve Martin, Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez at Showcase Cinemas in Woburn. All proceeds will be directed to Reading’s elementary school PTOs for enrichment programming.

This is a private showing, so the theatre will be closed to the public. You and your children will be watching the movie on its opening weekend and will have a blast seeing all of their friends!

Tickets are $10 per child and $12 per adult. Children under age 2 are admitted free, but must sit on someone’s lap. A full concession stand will be offered, and if you haven’t yet checked out the newly remodeled theater, you’re in for a treat! Featuring fully reclining luxury seats and a full bar, you’ll enjoy the film in style and relaxation.

Girl Scout movie patches will be available for purchase, and the event makes for a fun group bonding!!

What a great job our 3rd grade Barrows Shining Stars have done!  Today was our second day of testing and our third grade students and staff have done an excellent job.  Our students have been utilizing laptops and iPads to complete their testing.  I have observed our students persevering and sticking to it, working hard, and stretching their brains!

I have been able to observe all of the testing sessions so far - and our students and staff are doing a wonderful job as we all learn this new method of assessment!

Be proud of your Shining Stars, I know I am!

yesterday was Pi Day! 3/14/15

Once every 100 years this 'extra special' pi day comes around - completing additional digits of pi (3.1415) - and depending on how much you love pi (mathematics, not apple!) you could have celebrated especially at 9:26am!

If your child has never heard of "pi" share that it is a special number that appears in the relationships of measurements of circles - and was used in ancient civilizations!
