This month Fairbury Public Schools kicked-off One School One Book. They have purchased one common chapter book for each Central and Jefferson family. They prepared a January reading calendar for the chapter book where the classroom teachers read Chapters 1 and 2 of the book on January 9 and then the book was sent home along with the reading calendar with the youngest child or only child.
Update: There have been reports that piglets were born at the Arable farm. One smaller, weaker pig may see his time at the farm shortened because he is a runt! This runt was named Wilbur by a young girl, Fern, who lives at the farm. She saves him and Wilbur goes on to live at Fern’s uncle’s farm where he meets a rat named Templeton; and a talking spider named Charlotte who offers to be Wilbur’s friend.
Some of the geese at the farm think that Wilbur is going to be the main course at the Christmas dinner. Charlotte tells her friend, Wilbur, that she will save him!
Officials at Central Elementary and Jefferson Intermediate say that parents and students have read 15 chapters of the book so far and that many students have been turning in their questions! That is the most wonderful news!!!
Keep reading and find out how this special book about friendship ends.
This Saturday, January 28, we are going to have the movie “Charlotte’s Web” at Central Elementary for our Central and Jefferson families. We will have two times to select from – the first one will be at 10:00 a.m. (doors will open at 9:45 a.m.) and the other will be at 1:00 p.m. (doors will open at 12:45 p.m.) . You may bring your own blankets or pillows to sit on.. Please come and join us for this celebration!
Many thanks to our Librarian, Mrs. Cara Simpson, for setting up this project to promote reading in our district.
