Frenchtown School The door decorating contest is on-going in February. Classes have been taking walks through our hallways so each student can cast a ballot for their favorite door. Each student at Frenchtown, grades K-5, will promote their favorite book using various modes of presentation including Chatterpix Kids, Google Slides, Powtoons, and iMovie. Check out our twitter feed to see pictures of classroom doors decorated to display their favorite read aloud book. Winner will be on our website and twitter feed at the end of the month. The Kindness Club has teamed up with Library Media Specialist Mrs. Carley, to have a book drive for gently used or new books. All books will be donated to a local Bridgeport Elementary School in need of books. The Learning Commons Open House at Frenchtown has been rescheduled to Saturday, March 10, from 10 a.m.-noon. The Learning Commons will be open to students and their families. There is no admission fee. Students can check out books, participate in Maker Stations and read with a family member to share their love of books. There will be a legal day dismissal at 1 p.m., for afternoon and evening conferences on Thursday, March 15. No lunch will be served. Information on how to sign up for conferences will be sent home by your student's teacher soon. Save-the-date — Our Multicultural dinner will be held on Friday, March 23.
