If you follow our school’s social media accounts, you’ve probably heard the news that we are indeed having a Scholastic Book Fair this year.  It will be held in-person for our students, and virtually for their parents and other family members and friends.

In person for STUDENTS: November 22-26th

Virtual for PARENTS, FAMILY MEMBERS, and FRIENDS OF THE OJCS: November 22-December 3rd.  The virtual link is HERE! Please share this link widely!

Your child’s teacher will be in touch to let you know the specific date of your child’s visit to the fair so that they can be prepared.

There will also be teacher wish lists shared out so that parents can purchase books for their child’s teachers or send their child to school with extra money to pick out a wish list item for their teachers.

These fairs are very important fundraisers for the school and the goal this year is to use the funds to purchase important French teaching materials and books.

Thank you for supporting The OJCS!

Fabulously Funny Fairy Tales

Today we read two very silly and a little bit twisted re-tellings of:

Henny-Penny retold and illustrated by Jane Wattenberg


The Adventures of the Dish and the Spoon by Mini Grey

To give younger students a bit of context for The Adventures of the Dish and The Spoon, you can always start by sharing the nursery rhyme…

Hey diddle, diddle!
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon;
The little dog laughed
To see such sport,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.
