Foshay Summer

Students and Staff,  I hope you are having a refreshing summer and that it includes reading!  Lots of Foshay students have new and exciting books to read from our Scholastic Buy One, Get One Free! bookfair in May, because we sold over 600 books!

Next year we are all focusing on learning how can we be more helpful and successful individuals, members of our school family, our community, and the world. Foshay is an International Baccalaureate school, which helps us see how we are connected with our global community.

Here is a hint:  Learn these 10 qualities of an IB student, for a surprise in August-
Risk-Takers, Inquirers, Balanced, Caring, Reflective, Thinking, Knowledgeable, Principled, Communicators and Open-Minded. 

Have a wonderful summer, and see you @ the library in the fall!

Congratulations, and all participants received wonderful new books from First Book, a generous organization putting books into the hands and homes of students nation-wide.  First place also won a USB drive, and the top three bookmark designs will be used in the library throughout February.

Clippers Read to Achieve

Big Thank You! to Ms. Tigalo's 5th grade class for delivering all the prizes for participating in last year's Read to Achieve program created by the Clippers basketball team.  The Clippers are continuously supporting students in language arts achievement, especially self-selected reading. Reading for fun has been shown to improve reading, writing, vocabulary and test cores across the subjects. We are grateful to the Clippers for the school supplies and books to help our participants READ, WRITE, AND REALIZE their dreams!
