SOME OF OUR NEW
LS DECEMBER FAMILY READING NIGHT
Wednesday, 7 December
There are just a few places left
ASP libraries (US and LS) have joined forces to offer Lower School families a new and fun event just in time for the Holidays. Lower School families are invited to spend a joyous and intimate hour with their child(ren) around the wonderful world of books.
The event will take place in the Lower School library where families will be given time to browse the book collection together, choose a couple of books, and sit down and read to each other. The evening will finish with our guest reader sharing a story with the whole group.
If you're a LS parent, here's the link to reserve. Hurry up.
US STORY TIME WITH LS
Our US and LS students began their reading journeys a few weeks ago to great joy and success. They will break for exams and the holidays on Dec. 9, and resume on January 9, 2023.
Here are our Lower School reading partners:
- Ms. Sabatini
