April Orlo Avenue School News
Orlo Avenue School had 144 students with perfect attendance for the month of March! Congratulations to those students that were in school every day.
Orlo Avenue had a very successful Reading Week with the theme of The True Story of the Three Little Pigs by Jon Scieszka. Guest readers joined us all week to share their love of reading with our students. Students participated in Buddy Reading on Monday when students in Grades 3-5 read to students in Kindergarten - Grade 2. On Tuesday’s STEAM Day, students built houses and waited for the Big Bad Wolf to come “blow their houses down”. Parents were invited to join students on Wednesday morning for Breakfast, Books & PJs. Books were donated throughout the week and used in the student Book Swap on Thursday. Thursday night parents were invited to Orlo for Reading Workshop and the Book Fair. Friday ended with a splash! Students of Orlo ended the week with a total of 47,850 minutes read! Emily Alexander (Gr. K), Sophia Guerra (Gr. 1), Adrianna Correia (Gr. 2), Chloe Love (Gr. 3), Julia Mendonca (Gr. 4), and Alexis Peixoto (Gr. 5) read the most number of minutes in their respective grade levels. Chloe, Julia, and Alexis won the opportunity to save Orlo from the Big Bad Wolf who happened to be sitting on the platform of a Dunk Tank!
