We are so excited to celebrate Día on Friday, April 26.
Ms. McCabe and parent volunteers have created an interactive Story Walk to celebrate Día. Every classroom will visit the Story Walk for the opportunity to read and listen to two English/Spanish books.
Parents are encouraged to attend with their child’s classroom during their scheduled time to visit the Story Walk on Friday, April 26. Classroom schedule.
Reception at 12:35pm-1:15pm: Ms. McCabe is also hosting students and parents in the Lobo Library. Parents, grandparents, and/or the adult(s) who picks-up your child are invited to explore the Lobo Library with students. You’ll be amazed at how much Ms. McCabe and our library offer. You’re guaranteed to discover new ways to encourage your child to read. This is also another opportunity for parents to visit the Story Walk if they can’t attend with their child’s classroom.
