  • Stratford Road Students Voted!

    Posted by Mrs. Walsh at 12/1/2016

    Students in Stratford Road participated in a book election. Each student in 1st-4th grade was able to vote for which sets of new books they wanted to order for their school library. Over four hundred students voted and the results are listed below. Many of the results were very close. This was a great opportunity for us to discuss the election system. Students experienced the joy or sadness that comes with having your choice win or lose in an election.

  • 2016 Summer Reading Challenge

    Posted by Mrs. Walsh at 6/22/2016

    Summer Reading Challenge

    Why is summer reading so important?

    Although school is over for the year, it is important to encourage your child to read daily. Summer reading provides a great way for your child to learn new things, explore topics of interest, and feed their curiosity over the vacation months. It also has been shown to help maintain reading skills learned during the school year, increase vocabulary and reading fluency.

    As a district, we have developed our Summer Reading Challenge to encourage reading over the vacation. Is your child up for the challenge?

     

    How does the POB Summer Reading Challenge work

    1. Keep track of all the reading challenges you complete on the Summer Reading Challenge bookmark.

      2.  At the end of August, go to your school library webpage, and submit the summer reading challenge form. (Forms will not be up on the website until the end of summer.)

      3.  Earn a prize for completing at least 15 of the summer reading challenges!

     

    One class on every grade level will win a trophy for doing the most summer reading!

  • Author Visit with George O'Conner

    Posted by Mrs. Walsh at 2/16/2016

    On Friday February 12th, 2016 the  Stratford Road PTA sponsered a visit from author/illustrator George O'Connor. George is the author and illustrator of The Olympians books, a twelve part series about the Greek Gods, illustrator of the Captain Awesome series written by Stan Kirby, and author illustrator of the picture books, Kapow!, Ker-Splash!, If I had A Triceratops and If I Had A Raptor

    Students loved everyting about this author visit! Mr. O'Connor was so entertaining. He did an separate presentation for each grade. Third and fourth grade students learned about the Greek Myths, first and second grade listened to his dinosaur stories and were inspired by George's love of everything dinosaur related. Every group was able watch him draw. We even had a special author luncheon with a select group of 3rd and 4th grade students.  

    It was terrific visit, thank you George O'Connor and the Stratford Road PTA for a great day!

     

     

    George O'Connor is very active online. Here is his contact information for any student that wants to ask him further questions about his books or his profession.
