Wow! Our first day of school flew by in a flurry of activity. Our whole school assembly was treated to a readaloud by Mr. Marino and Ms. Boutaugh. This a CCS tradition that I just love.Their choice for this year was “Only One You” by Linda Kranz. This book encourages each and every one of us to find our own way in the world. It reminds us to be brave, to be creative, to just be who we are. What a wonderful message to hear on the first day of school.

2nd, 3rd and 6th graders kept us on our toes with readalouds, exploration, and booktalks. We have delivered hundreds (yes, hundreds) of books to classroom teachers. We can’t wait till tomorrow! Here is a great picture of what I refer to as a “book huddle”. 6th graders couldn’t wait to get their hands on the new Dorothy Canfield Fisher books after watching booktrailers and listening to some readaloud hooks!
