THRIVE kids copy a short note like this one into their Communication Books each day. Families are asked to read and initial these notes and are welcome to write back to school, too.

In addition to providing daily writing practice, these notes are one of the many ways to keep in touch with us. Note that recent messages are repeated on the Recent Messages page of this site in case a child is absent or a book goes missing.

We are nearing the end of another read-aloud book that has proven to be very popular. It is called Silverwing and it was written by Kenneth Oppel about twenty years ago. The story centers on the evolving relationship between two bats —— both of whom are outcasts in their colonies. It won a whole bunch of awards and it is a very exciting book!
