Summer Reading Challenge Week 6 July 16, 2014

Sorry this is being posted a little later than usual, this Friday morning I will fly out of Grand Rapids to travel the 6,545 miles to Beijing, China. I’m busy preparing, but I have so much to share in this weeks post.

First we have moved ahead in the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge we are ranked 409th in the nation! Awesome job to all of my summer readers. Keep logging here is the link again; Scholastic.

I wanted to give a quick reminder about the informational session happening on Monday July 21, 2014 at 6:00pm in the former K-Mart plaza. Students will have a chance to meet and speak to local government officials including Rep. Victory. Here is a link to some informational text from MLive that goes into more detail about the township proposal, this is a great opportunity for our students to get informed and involved in the community.

I’m excited to be able to post next week from China, until then I found this great video that introduces students to China its history and culture. China Video If any students have questions about my trip please email me and I will try to answer them: rbrown@jpsonline.org.

As I was picking up some last minute things for my trip when I walked into Meijer and saw aisles full of school supplies. Shopping early is usually the most affordable so keep your eyes open for deals and stock up. Here is the link to the grade level supply lists for Pinewood. Click on Pinewood and then instead of clicking on your grade level just scroll down on the document and each grade level is available.chinaindex
