Dear Eisenhower parents,
Welcome to the new school year! We hope you had an enjoyable summer and you are ready to jump into the next adventure. You probably have already had a chance to meet your teacher for this year. We hope you will join forces with us this year and volunteer to be a caring adult for Project Cornerstone. The theme this year is Inclusion is for Everyone.
Since inclusion is our goal this year, I would love to have volunteers who know other languages help me translate to the children who might need help understanding. There are so many valuable lessons that are taught in these workshops that I believe are worth making sure they are not lost in translation. I also think that Project Cornerstone is a wonderful opportunity to meet other families at our school and will be a way to form an even stronger community.
I ask that if possible, we have two readers in each classroom to work as a team and that at least one reader from each classroom must attend our training which is once a month.
The books we will be reading this year are:
September René Has Two Last Names by René Colato Laínez
October Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon by Patty Lovell
November The Day You Begin by Jaqueline Woodson
January Today I Feel Silly by Jamie Lee Curtis
February Long Shot by Chris Paul
March Enemy Pie by Derek Munson
April The OK Book by Amy Krouse Rosenthal
May K-4th Review of the Year
May 5th grade Who Moved My Cheese? for Kids by Spencer Johnson, M.D. and Christian Johnson
Please sign up!
Not interested in being a reader, but love the program? There are other ways to help Project Cornerstone fulfill its potential. Please consider taking on another role. Email me if you can help out.
