Scholastic Book Fair
“February 5-9, Polaris will have our first Scholastic Book Fair! This book fair will help us earn free books for our library! The book fair will be held at school as well as online. Students will visit the book fair with their classes for a preview of what is available. They will be able to complete a wish list which parents can then choose to buy books from, or add them to the class wishlist. Each class will have a wishlist for community members and parents who wish to donate a book to their child’s classroom. Donated books will be adorned with a special bookplate acknowledging the donor. If you are interested in donating but cannot attend, please email Mrs. Apac at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Star Students recognized on January 29 were: Khoi, Lilly, Maya, Colton, Jace, Tricia and Ahmed

Miss Haynes’ class has been learning about poetry, and they read poems from the book Clay Feet. In this book, the illustrator drew pictures and then the poet wrote poems based on the illustrations instead of the other way around. Miss Haynes’ class did the same thing. Each student drew a picture of anything they wanted, and then the pictures were randomly handed out to the class. They then had to write a poem based on the picture they received. Students studied different types of poems and got to choose which kind they wanted to write. They came up some very descriptive poetry!
Primary Class Visit
Mr.Velez came to visit the Primary Classrooms this week. During his visit, he led the three Primary classes in an exciting and engaging conversation about the 6 simple machines they have been learning about. He asked the students questions that tested their knowledge of simple machines! He ended his visit by challenging the students to engineer a solution to an everyday problem! The students had to work in groups to figure out how they would get a piano from the Gathering Room to a moving truck in the parking lot! Students needed to collaborate and decide what they would need, how they would use it, and act out what they would do! It was a great visit that the students couldn’t stop talking about!!
