Spring Picnic and Book Swap

Our annual Spring picnic will be on May 6th at 5:00. Tons of acitivities are scheduled.....including a bike rodeo, SCA organized kickball game, temporary tattoo station, and food truck. This year will also see the return of the Bood Swap sponsored by the SCA.

Book Swap Information

Students may bring in books Monday through Thursday for the book swap. They will receive a book buck for each of the first 10 books they bring in to the school. However, there is no limit to the number of book they donate. Book bucks can then be turned in for new books at the swap. It's a great way to get some new books in the house. Book bucks will be distributed on Friday. All questions can be directed to Mr. Rever at bprever@fcps.edu.

How long have you been teaching?  Reading teacher for 7 years and a teacher for 20.  This is my first year at White Oaks.
Did anything really inspire you to teach?  I was going to teach dance , but I realized I wanted to teach kids.  I always loved kids.
What is the favorite part of your job?  Working with teachers to help them with reading and writing.
What are a couple of things that all kids can do to help their reading?  Spend more time reading!  Eyes and mind in books.
What is your favorite book?  Harry Potter
What is your favorite genre?  Fantasy Fiction
What’s your favorite thing to do with kids?  Tell them what they are doing right.
What was your favorite thing to do as a kid?  I really liked to play pretend, so I guess that’s why I always liked books.  You could pretend you were in the book.
