Welcome!
February is Reading Marathon month!
Let's get reading every night!

You should have received a backpacked flyer to record the books that you read at home on February 1st. Additional forms may be obtained at the Ridgewood Library, on the Ridgewood Library website (www.ridgewoodlibrary.org), or on Travell’s website under weekly notices.

The Reading Marathon is a fundraiser for the Friends of the Ridgewood Public Library. The funds are used to support the children’s’ programs at the Ridgewood Public Library. Although donations are optional, they are greatly appreciated. This is an important fund raiser for the Ridgewood library.  Thank you in advance for your participation in the Reading Marathon. 

Happy Reading! 
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, our goal is $7,000 to donate to the American Heart Association. Many thanks to all the supporters and jumpers!
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 – Charlotte's WebImagine 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.

 

Can you spell...menacing?

Congratulations to Tiffany Chang, winner of Travell's Spelling Bee! Tiffany prevailed over 40 other students. She will represent Travell at an upcoming regional spelling bee at Fairleigh Dickenson University. K-U-D-O-S again to Tiffany, and the best of luck at the next bee!!"
