All School Read 2024

 

 

 

We are thrilled to announce the 7th Annual All School Read book selection, The Lost Library by Rebecca Stead and Wendy Mass.

 

Have you ever found a gem of a book inside a little free library? The Lost Library is a mystery that centers upon the sleuthing of eleven-year-old Evan and his best friend, Rafe, as they investigate the connections between the appearance of a new little free library, apparently managed by a large, orange cat, an old book, a reclusive librarian, and Evan’s father’s secrets. Evan discovers that it is not only little free libraries that often contain beautiful surprises. The people around him have unique and important stories to share – once he becomes curious enough to pay attention.

 

Copies of the book will go home in backpacks (one per family), and information will be included in the Beagle Bulletin on April 4. Be sure to visit our All School Read webpage for the reading schedule, staff video recordings, enrichment activities, and more!

 


 

Hot Dog Day T-shirt Sponsors Needed!

 

The end of the school year is fast approaching. As we begin to plan for the beloved annual Hot Dog Day (5/30), we need your help! Our first step is finding sponsors for the Hot Dog Day T-shirt. 535 students will wear this shirt at the annual picnic and then again throughout the years. Often, these shirts are passed along to other younger family members, too. Would your business like to be a sponsor? Do you know a business we should approach? Learn more about sponsorship levels using this link. Payment and artwork are due by 4/19.

 


 

Help fill the Lake Bluff Basket for the SEED Auction

 

SEED, Shorewood’s educational foundation, makes a direct impact on the lives of Lake Bluff students. Each year, SEED generously makes financial donations that benefit all schools, including Lake Bluff. 

This year alone, SEED helped fund the new and popular elementary math curriculum and training. They are also the organization that has funded the Children's Hospital mental health initiative, which provides on-site mental health support for our children. SEED generously provided the new electric orchestra instruments. Members of Lake Bluff’s staff have been recent recipients of the Shorewood Excellence in Teaching Awards. This is just a small example of the big impact SEED has on the community.

 

SEED raises its funds from direct donations from community members and through its Annual Gala, Swing With Shorewood. You can join SEED by attending the gala on May 4. Learn more here. You can Also contribute to the Lake Bluff Door County Getaway Basket through a financial donation or an item to add. Items can include anything related to a weekend away (recreation, meal planning, spa, relaxing, etc.) or travel. Click here to donate. You can also contact Sarah Keefe with your item. Donations are due by 4/19. Thank you for supporting SEED.

Math Supply Drive

 

The School District is implementing a new math curriculum, Eureka Math, this year. Each classroom (K5-5th) needs some supplies to implement the curriculum. The district has asked the PTO to help facilitate the collection of the items for each school. The PTO donated items that were requested for immediate use, such as reams of card stock, plastic page protectors, individual whiteboards, and more. 

Kindly consider donating materials to be used with the Eureka Math curriculum. Today, we have the sign-up genius lists for four classrooms; we will add more lists as they become available. 

Click here to view available supply lists.

There will be boxes placed in each classroom to collect the supplies. On behalf of the district, we thank you for your contributions.
