Laugh into Literacy
On October 4th, Glenwood Landing began its month long C.R.E.W. (Curious Readers Enthusiastic Writers) festival with an exciting school-wide assembly celebrating 28 years of C.R.E.W. This year, the CREW committee proudly stated that the theme was “Laugh into Literacy” inspired by guest author Darren Sardelli. Students will be encouraged all month to read books about fiction, poetry, non-fiction, biographies, and science fiction, just to name a few and write about them! The enjoyable ceremony was filled with songs and a presentation summarizing all of the educational activities that will take place during the month of October 2016.
Some exciting new and traditional events that are planned for C.R.E.W. this year include:
During C.R.E.W., students will be challenged to read more books than the year before!
On October 31st, there will be a closing ceremony to culminate the C.R.E.W. festival. Many thanks go out to the teachers, staff, the C.R.E.W. committee, and the Glenwood Landing School-Community Association (SCA) who are all essential in the success of this event.
