School Announcements
Jump Rope for Heart
Jump Rope For Heart is a national education and fundraising event sponsored by the American Heart Association.  Students learned how to jump rope and develop heart-healthy habits while being physically active.  As a school, we raised $5,396. to donate to the American Heart Association. Many thanks to all the supporters and jumpers!
Author and Illustrator Visit
We are excited to announce that best selling author Dav Pilkey and the 2015 Caldecott winner, Beekle, illustrated by Dan Santat will visit grades 2-5 on March 13th. Order form for autographed books available to all grades-due February 25th.

Dav Pilkey and Dan Santat's visit to Travell School has been made possible through the
courtesy of Books, Bytes & Beyond, the independent children’s bookstore in Glen Rock.

The story of Beekle begins on an island far away where an imaginary friend is born. He patiently waits his turn to be chosen by a real child, but when he is overlooked time and again, he sets off on an incredible journey to the bustling city, where he finally meets his perfect match and-at long last-is
given his special name: Beekle.
Travell Science Fair
Calling all scientists! Wow your teachers, family and friends with your excellent experiments, inspirational inventions and daring discoveries. Join the Travell Science Fair on February 26th. Don't forget to bring your project to Super Science Saturday on February 28th at RHS.
The Dirtmeister
“The Dirtmeister,” Steve Tomecek, will share his knowledge of Science with the Travell students as a “kick-off” for our Science Fair on February 26th. Using some slightly serious science demos, he will share how everyday materials can be turned into totally awesome science fair projects. As part of the program he discussed air and pressure.

One School, One Book

This winter, Travell School will be embarking on a fun school wide book club project: One School, One Book. Thanks to our Home and School Association, every family will receive a copy of the same book – Betty G. Birney’s Friendship According to HumphreyImagine being part of a community that will all read the same book simultaneously.

 
Reading aloud at home is an invaluable practice to prepare your child to be an effective reader who can comprehend, enjoy and discuss literature. We have selected a title that can be understood and enjoyed by younger students but can still captivate and stimulate older readers.

After the holidays, Humphrey is shocked by a big surprise in Room 26-a new class pet! Humphrey tries to be welcoming, but Og the frog doesn't respond to any of his friendly squeaks or visits. Plus, the students in Room 26 are so interested in Og, they almost stop paying attention to Humphrey altogether. Humphrey doesn't like the mad-bad-sad feelings he's had since Og came, but luckily he still gets to have adventures with different kids on the weekends. Friendship can be tricky, but Humphrey is an intrepid problem-solver. If any hamster can become buddies with a frog, he can.

Jonathan Sprout
Grammy nominee Jonathan Sprout performed his American Heroes Four Concert for Travell students. Jonathan has performed more than 5,000 children's concerts, recorded 10 CDs and taught over 750 songwriting workshops. His American Heroes Four concert featured original songs and stories about Wilma Rudolph, John Muir, Elizabeth Blackwell, Thomas Jefferson, and Milton Hershey who all overcame hardships and persevered.
