Scholastic Book Fair / Speech Competition (Grade 5 & 6)
Assalamu Allaykum Dear parents/students,
The Spring Scholastic Book Fair will be on Thursday and Friday insha’Allah. Grade 5 & 6 will be going on Friday with their homeroom teachers, however, they will also have an opportunity to go during snack and lunch recesses on Thursday.
Students can put items on hold on Thursday, and ask your permission Thursday night, if you prefer. Otherwise, students can bring $ when and if they are interested in purchasing books and other stationary items.
Qualifying rounds will take place on Monday and Tuesday of next week, insha’Allah. Written speeches will also be due. April 25th will be the official competition.
Participation is optional – however, all other grade 5 & 6 students will also be asked to submit a speech by Friday, April 20 on one of the blog topics or suggest a topic for approval. Those speeches will begin the following week, insha’Allah.
Giving effective speeches is a great skill to work on.
