Tracey Campbell Pearson is coming to Jericho Elementary School on Thursday, April 15,
2010! She will visit with all students while she is here. It can be very rewarding for children to
have the opportunity to own a book written, illustrated and autographed by the visiting author.
Tracey will autograph books brought in from home or purchased through the school when she is
here. Look for more information in your child’s Thursday folder.
A reminder for fourth grade students -
If you are hoping to vote on the Dorothy Canfield Fisher (DCF) nominees, you must have read
five books and conference with the librarian before voting begins. Voting will take place from
April 1 - 7.
               Note: Change of Date for the Mother-Daughter Puberty Class

puberty class was to be held, the class date has been moved to the following Wednesday, April
21, 5:30-7:30 PM. Invitation letter to come at the beginning of April.
