What is NWEA MAP Assessment?

Book Character Day

Dear Parents,

   We're excited to announce that MSI will be having Book Character Day on October 31, 2014! On that day, each student should come to school dressed up as a character from a favorite book. No scary costumes! No Masks! The character must be from a book they have read recently (not just from a movie or cartoon they have watched), and your child should be prepared to describe both the character and the book. Please work with your child to plan a simple costume. It can be homemade or bought from a store. We need to know the name of their character and the book in which they found the character. If possible, your child should bring a copy of the book to class that day. He/she will take part in several character- study activities that day. Every student who is dressed will get to show off their costume in our character parade. Thank you in advance for your participation.


Reminder:
