What a wonderful collection for all to consider. As stated on Common Sense Media, "From picture books to graphic novels, fantasy to family fun, these must-read books have the power to hook both boys and girls. Some are cultural touchstones that belong in every kid's library. Others open kids' minds to cultures beyond their own...Whether you have a reluctant reader or budding bookworm, check out these sure-fire, kid-tested titles. (We've included a few rated best for 12 and up for the precocious readers out there!)" Click through for the link.

Middle School Service Club
Friday, January 30, 2015
Which little library would your Middle Schooler like to help design and build? Check out these examples: We've rescheduled out Middle School Service Club meeting to launch this project to Tuesday, February 3rd from 3:15-4:15. Students will begin designing Little Free Libraries for three neighborhoods in the Merrimack Valley. These "libraries" are beautiful boxes where anyone can select a book to read and bring back another to share. Using students' designs, parent Chris Natale will cut the wood for the libraries that will be assembled at a MSSC meeting in February. After painting the libraries and stocking them with some great "reads," we'll take them to their neighborhood destinations, where we hope to turn on more readers. Parents, we'd love some help with this project. If you're interested, please email me. You can find more information at this link:

Lower School Parent/Teacher Conference Day Information
Tuesday, January 20, 2015
Lower and Middle School parent/teacher conference day is Friday, February 20. We will provide supervision for any Lower and Middle School students whose parents are attending conferences on that day between 8:00am and 4:00pm as well as coverage on Thursday, February 19 from 3:00-5:00pm. We do not provide coverage for any other days, so we prefer you choose one of these days if you will have children with you during your conference time (or arrange for Flex or other supervision for your child). At no time may students wait in the lobby, library or halls while parents are meeting with teachers. Supervision is required to ensure the safety of all students and a productive work environment for the Pike staff. Supervision will be provided in the library on Thursday from 3:00-5:00pm and in the cafeteria from 8:00-12:00 and 1:00-4:00 (and the library from 12:00-1:00). We regret that we cannot accommodate any non-Pike students and that we are unable to offer this supervision on other days. Please note that Friday, February 20 is a regular school day for Upper School students.

"Stories are Everywhere!" Join Pike's Cara Kennedy for a special presentation of story and song, celebrating much-loved classics like Mary Poppins and Dr. Seuss stories. Cara, who is an experienced theatrical actress, will showcase their enduring appeal through readings and selections from musical adaptations of these stories and more.‚Äč Cara Kennedy joined the staff at Pike School in 2007 and currently works in the Advancement Office as the Advancement Services and Events Manager. In her free time, she lives in the world of theater and is often found on stage or behind the scenes with local group, ACT Theater Company. Since joining the group in 2009, Cara has performed in 17 stage productions and cabarets. Some of her favorite roles include: Joy, the Step-sister (Cinderella), Miss Hannigan (Annie), Madame Thenardier (Les Miserables), and Hermit (Young Frankenstein the Musical). When not on stage, Cara serves as an Executive Board Member, and has been the Executive Producer for the ACT Kids and ACT Jr. Youth Theater Education Programs since their creation in 2011. Parents should meet their children directly after school. To ensure students meet their parents ahead of entering the library, parents should park, pick up their children on the sidewalk for dismissal, and then enter the library together. Mrs. Elkin and the teachers on dismissal duty will call children out when their parents arrive on the sidewalk.
