March Madness Kick Off Assembly
On Wednesday, February 14, we will kick off our third annual Nonfiction Picture Book March Madness tournament with an assembly in the gym at 1:15. Over the next month, teachers at WES will read aloud sixteen outstanding nonfiction picture books to their students. After the texts had been read aloud, students vote between pairs of books to determine which nonfiction books will move on in the tournament. We have already planned another epic assembly for Wednesday, March 21st to announce our 2018 March Madness Nonfiction Picture Book Champion. Parents are welcome to join us for these special events!
Our fourth and fifth graders know how much our March Madness nonfiction book tournament means to the students and staff at WES. During the month of March, our kids are passionate, not just about basketball, but about reading! We encourage you to take the time to check out our March Madness book bracket in the lobby and ask your child to tell you about his or her favorite contenders in this year’s tournament. Let the fun begin!
