School Wide Read Aloud
The latest School Wide Read Aloud was The Invisible Boy by Trudy Ludwig.
It’s about a young boy named Brian. His teacher hardly notices him, the other kids never invite him to play, and he eats lunch alone. But he loves to draw, so at recess, he creates comics about greedy pirates, battling space aliens, and superheroes with the power to make friends everywhere. One day, a new boy, Justin, joins the class. The other children make fun of him for eating Bulgogi, a Korean dish.  Brian slips him a friendly note. When it is time to find partners for a class project, Justin asks Brian to join him. Brian's artistic talents come in handy, and finally he is no longer invisible.
This is a simple yet heartfelt story about a boy who has been excluded for no apparent reason but finds a way to cope and eventually gains acceptance.
At Travell, we continue to focus on making our school a safe and respectful one.
 
Kevin Two Steps

Kevin Two Steps used singing, dancing, history and storytelling to teach the Kindergarteners about

the Lenape Indian people and culture. He brought with him hundreds of artifacts (some 10,000 years old!) for the children to touch and examine. Enrichment programs like this one are made possible through your generous donations to the HSA.

Village Fresh
