Dear Meadowview Parents and Guardians, On Thursday, October 31st, we will celebrate Halloween at school. As you and your children plan their Halloween costumes please adhere to the District 46 Holiday guidelines. •Keep in mind that some families are deeply offended by the representation of witches, ghosts, vampires, devils, werewolves, and goblins. • Weapons and other suggestions of overt violence are not allowed. • District 46 staff reserve the right to remove disruptive costumes or portions thereof. Full day Kindergarten and First through fourth grade students are to wear their regular school clothes to school on Thursday, October 31st. In the afternoon they will change into their costumes. Please make sure your child is able to put his/her costume on independently. All half day kindergarten children should plan to wear their costumes to school on Thursday, October 31st. AM Kindergarten will hold their parade at 10:15. This will be held outside. If you would like to see the parade, you can stand in the front of the school. Full Day Kindergarten, PM Kindergarten, and first through fourth grade will parade at 1:45. The parade will be held outside. The children will walk out the front door around the gym and enter again through the back recess door. Cones will be set up and parents will be able to watch the parade from the outside perimeter of the parade route. In the case of inclement weather the parade will be cancelled.!

Sincerely,!!

!

Laura Morgan!

Reading Corner with Mrs. Knott

Have you ever wondered what to read with your child? Need book ideas? Look for a new book idea each month in the World to Discover newsletter. All of these books are found at the Meadowview Library, a local bookstore or at the Grayslake Library. Use these suggestions to help find new titles for your family to read! Count the Monkeys by Mac Barnett (picture book) Although counting books may tire out jaded grown-ups, a good one will always get youngsters excitedly running through their numbers. Barnett begins with a call: “Hey, kids! Time to count the monkeys!” But his simians won’t show, having been scared off. So who scared them off? Maybe those two mongooses? Or those ! three crocodiles? Barnett instructs readers to ward off each group of beasts with various techniques. For example, on a page featuring four grizzly bears, the instructions say, “Put your arms above your head! Make a loud roar! Bang together some pots and pans, if you have them.” (This isn’t a book to read during quiet time.) Besides the chance to make noise, kids will adore Cornell’s broadly exaggerated animals, from the toothy monkey grins to the round bottoms of bearded lumberjacks. The whole package has a Saturday-morning-cartoon cheerfulness. And when the monkeys still haven’t appeared at the purported end, never fear. The last spread will keep counters content for a good long while.

Star Wars: Jedi Academy by Jeffrey Brown Roan's one dream is to leave home and attend Pilot Academy like his older brother, father, and grandfather. But just as Roan is mysteriously denied entrance to Pilot School, he is invited to attend Jedi Academy--a school that he didn't apply to and only recruits children when they are just a few years old. That is, until now... This inventive novel follows Roan's first year at Jedi Academy where, under the tutelage of Master Yoda, he learns that he possesses more strength and potential than he could have ever dreamed. Oh, and he learns other important things too--like how to make a baking soda volcano, fence with a lightsaber, and lift boulders with the Force.
