We have two Scholastic book fairs each year, one in the fall and one in the spring. The proceeds are used to bring an author/illustrator to school or purchase library and technology materials.
I Love To Read Weeks
For the two weeks preceding February vacation, we celebrate reading and writing. In the library we have visiting readers from the community. We also have a used book swap.
Red Clover Activity Day
Before we vote for our favorite Red Clover book students get to review the stories and make a craft related to a book. The entire staff participates in this afternoon activity so that groups have only about eight students each.
Porters Point has been very fortunate to have many authors and illustrators visit us. Some of them are: Harry Bliss, Natalie Kinsey-Warnock, Tracey Campbell Pearson, Douglas Flourian, Irene Hectors Small, J. Alison James, Leda Shubert and Jason Chin.
