Many students are also reading in preparation for the upcoming Super Literacy Quiz Bowl games. There's a lot of information about the SLQB right here on this website. The registration forms are now available and are due by February 15. The SLQB is part of Pennekamp's annual Literacy Event, which this year is from March 1 to 15.
For our younger Dragons, I'm pleased to announce a new Literacy Event activity: Night at the Library, which will be on March 6, from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. Parents and students in TK, K, 1st, and 2nd grade are invited to come in their PJs to Pennekamp's library after dark. We'll hear and read picture books and do a variety of fun things. Please note, each child needs to have a parent with her or him--this is not a drop-off event.
The Rotary Readers from the Manhattan Beach Rotary Club will be reading to our students during the week of February 25, 2019. The students always enjoy meeting these service-minded community members and hearing about their love of reading.
The book club for 5th grade is in full swing. Our current selection seems to be a big hit with the students: A Night Divided, by Jennifer A. Nielsen. Rain has affected our meeting schedule a bit, so the next meeting is February 27 at lunch/recess in the library.
