Grateful for a Great Book Literacy Event at Mauro-Sheridan Mauro-Sheridan celebrated its first literacy event of the fall on Wed. Nov. 23 with "We Are Grateful for a Great Book." There was a school-wide read-in as classes read their favorite books around virtual fireplaces projected in each classroom as well as the library. Because this was also Pajama Day, a fundraiser for literacy activities, students enjoyed wearing comfy clothes as they snuggled up with their books. Students were also asked to blog about books for which they are grateful. Read about this at http:// www.mauro-sheridan.net then select Family Literacy and Students: "We Are Grateful for a Great Book."
