    Go to the public library.  Sign up for summer reading and receive a reading log.  Record the time you spend reading, or someone reads to you.  Each log equals 12.5 hours of reading.  Your first completed log earns you a coupon for admission to Davis Farmland.  You can also pick up more reading logs.  Each log you turn in by September 2nd, earns you a raffle ticket for one of the prize jars.  The more you read, the better your chance is to win!  Bring one of your completed logs to the Harrington library in September and receive an additional prize.  Every student should be reading over the summer!  Summer is the time to read what you enjoy!!!

  • HARRINGTON SCHOOL GIVES BACK TO THE COMMUNITY

     

    Thank you to all the families who donated books

    for The House of Hope in Lowell.  We delivered over

    1000 books yesterday afternoon and got a tour of the

    facility. Here is a photo taken of the 4th grade students

    who came along to help make the delivery. 

    It is so important to give back, there are many families

    who will benefit from this generous donation!

    hope

    "Picture books are the soul and foundation

    for who we become.  Reading them with a

    child on our lap is one of the best ways to

    share our values.  Every picture book is an

    opportunity."   --- Marc Brown, author of the

    Arthur Series

  • An important part of your child's library class is listening to a story.  Listening to a story promotes literacy by focusing on the art of listening.  The Harrington library promotes both printed text and audiobooks; as well as movies and videotaped author visits.  Students are encouraged to access Tumblebooks, the free ebook reader provided by the Chelmsford Public Library when they are using the library ipads during their weekly classroom visit to the library.  Listening to rich literature will promote discussion and critical thinking skills, which is really what the Common Core State Standards are all about.
