@SequimSchools — Nov. 15, 2017


Greywolf Elementary is rounding up all the good books at this year’s Wild West Book Fair! Saddle up and take a ride down to the Greywolf Library, where you can find all kinds of books and learning items for all ages. The book fair is open through Nov. 19. From Nov. 15-17 we are open during school hours, and Nov. 18 and 19, hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. We are open to the public on the weekend!

So come on down and lasso some books for you and your posse! (Please note: Tax will be added to all purchases at the book fair.)


Around the second-grade pod at Hellen Haller Elementary, you may walk by and smell applesauce! That’s because with the help of community members and gleaners such as Kathy Strozyk our classes were donated apples! With our apples we heard a tale about the “Little Red House” and made applesauce. The students then wrote how to reports on how to make applesauce!

This was a great project to bring some of the season changes, community members and memories to our classes. Thanks to all involved!
