PTA NEWS and EVENTS
  • Read to Succeed Program Underway
    Reading logs are due by back to your teacher by Friday, February 24, 2017.
    Please encourage your child to continue reading, and complete the reading log that was sent home with your child. Students who complete six hours of recreational reading will earn a free admission ticket to Six Flags in Jackson, N.J. If you need a copy of the reading log, please click here. If you have any questions, please contact Sapna Llano at sapna.llano@gmail.com
  • Read Across America - Guest Reader Day, Thursday, March 2

Read Across America is an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on March 2, the birthday children's author Dr. Seuss.

Brunner will celebrate this day in various ways. One big part of the day will be two surprise guest readers in each class.

Please consider volunteering to read to your child's class on Thursday, March 2, 2017. Grandparents and other family members are welcome. The time slots for guest reader day will be determined around each teacher's class schedule. If more than two people sign up for a class, we will use a lottery system for determining the guest readers. Please sign up by Sunday, February 26th. I will notify all selected readers on Monday, February 27.

Please note that guest readers are welcome any day as long as the parent schedules the visit with the teacher in advance. However, on Guest Reader Day, we limit guest readers to two per class in order to be respectful of the rest of the educational day.
 
If you are interested in being a guest reader for your child's class, please contact Sapna Llano to schedule a time slot. In your email, please include your child's grade and teacher name.
 
Not sure what to read? Don't worry- we can make some suggestions. The Brunner Library can even provide the book that you read. Don't miss out on this opportunity to spend some time with your child in their classroom!
