Storytime with Principal Tumilty

August Read aloud


This month we kicked off the school year with our first ever all school read aloud.  Mrs. Tumilty visited every classroom to read the same story, All Are Welcome written by Alexandra Penfold and illustrated by Suzanne Kaufman.  This book presents the concept of welcoming all people to a community.  In our class discussions we shared ways we can make Creekside a community that feels welcoming to all people every day!  Part of this book explores how saying "All are Welcome" is by celebrating our differences.  Students shared ideas about what the author says, "Our strength is our diversity."  Creekside is stronger because of our differences and we embrace, welcome and encourage everyone to feel safe to be different!  We want our students, families and staff members to feel safe physically and emotionally.  

Monthly Read Alouds at Creekside will focus on different themes and topics for our school to discuss together.
