Humphrey Arrived at Greendale Elementary this Week!

Two children, one girl and one boy, are posing with a costumed character that looks like a light brown mouse.Throughout the school building, a sense of excitement began to build on Monday morning after the morning news crew announced the new school-wide book read for this year- The World According to Humphrey by Betty Birney! Every day for the next fifteen days, our Vocabulary Word of the Day, as well as trivia questions about the events in the book will be read on morning news. Humphrey made a guest appearance and took time out of his busy schedule to help deliver books to the children in their classrooms. By late morning, several classes in the upper grades had already read the first few chapters of the book. Conversations among teachers, students, a custodian and even our school nurse, peppered the hallways.  Ashton W., one of our fifth grade students, has been bringing her pet hamster, Fuzzy, (a.k.a. Humphrey) to spend the day in our library for everyone to enjoy! What a wonderful book to share the love of reading with our school community.
