Reading Week is in Full Swing at NSES!

Although this is a short week, it is one of the most fun ones here at NSES…Reading Week!  The theme this year is “New Faces, New Places, Read!”.  We have four fun filled days planned including mystery readers, a daily book swap, door decorating contest, and “Dress Like a Word” day.  Here are some quick pics of Buddy Reading Day and our Book Swap as well as a link to what we have planned for the Week.  Be sure to attend our Spring Reading Celebration (aka Family Literacy Night) on Thursday, April 13 from 6-7. Meet local authors, including our own Mrs. Williams and wear pajamas to listen to some fabulous read alouds!
