All 5th Grade families with students planning to take band, chorus, or orchestra at Fischer next year should plan to attend our Fischer Music registration night -- held at Fischer Middle School on Thursday, January 24 in the Fischer Cafeteria. Families need to plan to stop by for 15 minutes at any time between 4:00pm and 8:00pm to meet with the music teachers to confirm registration for music classes for the fall. The Fischer Music Teachers will give information about all instruments and materials needed for music classes, and will be able to answer any questions at that time. Please bring the yellow music form that students received from the Fischer Music teachers this week, as well as the Elective Course Options form that was sent home by 5th grade teachers.
All fourth grade students in our district will have the chance to meet the author of one of the most popular children's books in our LMC later this month. Katherine Applegate has written The One and Only Ivan, Crenshaw, the Roscoe Riley Rules Series and Wishtree. She is the featured author for this year"s Naperville Reads. She is coming to Naperville on Tuesday, January 29th as part of a cooperative effort between Anderson's Bookshop, Jumping Off the Page, and District's 203 and 204. Fourth grade students attending schools on the north side of the district will take part in the morning. Those attending schools located in the south side of the district will take part in the afternoon. Applegate will focus on her book The Wishtree, a charming tale of love and loss that many of our Georgetown students are already familiar with. Students will have a chance to ask questions following her presentation.
There will also be a community event the same night at Naperville North High School. It begins at 7 p.m. Admission is free and no tickets are required. If you would like to participate in Anderson's citywide celebration of reading, there are still some time slots available. They are Tuesday, January 22nd, Wednesday, January 23rd, Saturday, January 26th, and Sunday, January 27th. Just make yourself comfortable in a window seat, and enjoy yourself as a good book takes you away! Sign up here: https://goo.gl/cQqA6L
