The Gavlak Staff welcomes all of our students to the 2020-2021 School Year.
Thanks to our PTA for all they do!
March is a special month where we facilitate special reading activities that promote children to learn and grow through reading.
We like to emphasize the importance of reading in being a successful student and in becoming a successful adult in the workplace.
Our "Read Across America Program" will kick off on March 2nd as a tribute to Dr. Seuss and other authors in building a love of books and reading among our students. Staff, administrators and distinquished community members have volunteered to complete a "Special Guest Reading Video". Our "Guests" will read a book, that will be posted in our Google Classrooms, on line for students to view.
Another special reading activity will be our annual Scholastic Book Fair, though it will be conducted a little differently this year. Students will be able to purchase books they would like to read through a "Virtual Scholastic Book Fair" to take place starting February 28th through March 4th. Students will be able to access a link through their Google on-line classes and order books directly from Scholastic. Parents will of course need to help their child to make appropriate book selections, along with a means of payment for item purchased. The PTA will get a percentage of the purchases which benefits our school programs for children.
