Kids in the Middle - February Plainville Youth Services’ Kids in the Middle (KIM) program has had a great start to the new year. Students participating in our “Adopt a Grandparent” program played games and made crafts with the residents of Jerome Home. A group of KIM volunteers also visited Plainville Early Learning Center and completed a winter themed activity with their new friends. Students are looking forward to returning to both sites. Kids in the Middle will be collecting toiletries and other essential items for Brian’s Angels Homeless Outreach. The donation drive will run from March 1st – March 23rd. Collection boxes will be in the atrium. For a list of what you can donate, check out posters around the school or email Amy Kievit for more details. Middle school students are welcome to join KIM at any time. Contact Amy Kievit [email protected], or stop by her office in room 514 at the Middle School on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Library Happenings Grade 6 Read-a-Thon: Grade 6 ELA classes are participating in a read-a-thon in collaboration with MSP's library. Last month, students voted on which organization they would like to support and 53% of students chose Doctors without Borders. Students are asking parents and friends to sponsor them for $1.00 or more for every 50 pages they read between February 1 and April 1. Students are responsible for keeping track of their reading. Money collected may be turned into the library during homeroom, lunch, or enrichment, any day from April 2 - 6. At the end of the read-a-thon, the homeroom with the most number of pages read and the homeroom that raises the most money will both be rewarded. Students will vote on the reward from a number of options. With 178 grade 6 students, it would be marvelous if every student were able to read a minimum of 50 pages, and donate at least $1.00. That would make a fine donation to a worthy cause. Please consider supporting your grade 6 child. Any questions - please send an email to Mrs. Lynch. Read Across America: MSP's library will have its annual Read Across America celebration on Thursday, March 2nd. NEA's Read Across America is a fun, celebratory way to promote the enjoyment of reading. It is a wonderful opportunity for students, teachers, librarians, administrators and parents to share the joys of reading aloud to each other. Over 275 students in grades 6, 7, and 8 will participate as readers or listeners. Teachers, administrators, and school and Plainville Public Library staff will join the celebration as well, reading aloud picture books, short stories and poetry. Mrs. White's 8th grade FACS classes will provide beautifully decorated cupcakes using this year's diversity theme of Dr. Seuss around the world. The MSP library is very grateful for the generosity of Gnazzo's, which will donate water and snacks for all readers and listeners. Additional thanks go to Snyders of Hanover which will generously donate pretzels for all participants. If your child is interested in participating as a reader or listener, please ask them to contact their social studies teacher. If parents would like to participate as readers or listeners or have any additional questions, they are welcome to email Mrs. Lynch. www.plainvilleschools.org
