Our school also wanted you to know that today we launched our One Book/One Silveira Community Read program. The vision is that we, as a school community, share in the discussion of a story together. To accomplish this goal, we have selected two books by the award-winning children's book author (and Marin County resident) Katherine Applegate.
Mrs. Armstrong will be reading aloud Ivan, The Remarkable True Story of a Shopping Mall Gorilla to all TK-2nd grade classes the week after returning from break; and all 3rd-5th grade students were given a copy of The One and Only Ivan today thanks to the generous support of MESHSA.
The goal of this "Community Read" is to get all members of the MES community- students, parents, teachers, and staff excited about reading and discussing inspirational books! We encourage families to share in the story of Ivan with their children, and stay tuned for more news surrounding our One Book/One Silveira program!
