School Announcements
School Wide Read Aloud Assembly
This month’s School Wide Read Aloud is Nerdy Birdy by Aaron Reynolds. 

Nerdy Birdy hangs around the cool birds, but they don't have anything in common. The cool birds only seem to care about their stuff (being strong, showing off, etc). One day Nerdy Birdy meets an entire flock of nerdy birds that like the same things that he does. He's finally found his people! But the story doesn’t stop there.  When another new nerdy bird moves to town, he learns that even the nerdiest bunch of birds can be as unwelcoming as the cool guys.

The book discusses how it's ok to not fit in and be different, but not to shun other people because they might be a different kind of different from you. The story is not just about being accepted by a group, but being true to yourself and including people that are different. It demonstrates how easily peer pressure can make a group of nerdy birds as mean as the cool guys. 

 Thanks to the Home and School for providing a book for every classroom.
