It’s time for a virtual field trip to the Everywhere Book Fest! by Anna E Jordan. Readers will have an exciting opportunity to listen to some of their favorite authors this Friday May 1st and Saturday May 2nd either via IRL or via Skype.
On May 1st some of the highlights are Jacqueline Woodson, writer of Brown Girl Rising at 10 am. This has become a beloved library book for so many of your children. Jason Reynolds can be viewed at 11 am. Our Craig students love his track series.
As we all know Craig has so many incredible artists who will enjoy watching or participating in the picture draw off at 12pm. For you history buffs there will be a historical fiction panel at 1pm.
I realize Saturday can be your day of rest but there are some wonderful authors featured. Marie Lu is someone our middle school readers of the Legend Series will enjoy. Nathan Hale will be joining a panel of nonfiction authors at 1pm. These are just a few of the fun and dynamic authors featured May 1st and 2nd. The Everywhere Book Fest is the ideal book field trip for kids. I will provide an attachment so please put aside the time to browse through all of the opportunities to see your favorites.
Along with the attachment for the Everywhere Book Fest I will be including the time schedules for Friday’s classes. Although the schedules will be much the same as last week, the visual may just make it a little easier to follow. There will also be a Peer Leader Lunch scheduled for 12:00. Please remember the importance of attending Health Class. Art and Health are part of your Craig curriculum and report card worthy. Unless there is an excused absence, classes are considered mandatory. In the weeks to come we will be adding electives and clubs to our Friday schedule. Those will be optional but our hope is that all of you will select at least one to attend.
Wishing you all a happy and healthy week. As always thank you for your enthusiasm and continued support.
