  • The Book Fair is coming next week! The Scholastic Book Fair will be held from April 25-27, including Thursday evening during International Night, in the Angell Library. Did you know that up to 50% of the price of the books that are purchased at the Book Fair are returned back to the school to buy new books for our students? The Book Fair is our yearly fundraiser to support our library and classrooms’ book supplies. Appealing new titles and well maintained classroom books keep the students excited about reading!

They will bring the wish list home to share with you and you can decide how to proceed on purchasing books or not from that list. You are under no obligation to purchase products.

  • See you at International Night on Thursday, April 27th from 6:30-8:30pm! Come celebrate Angell’s rich cultural diversity and learn about cultures and traditions from our friends around the world! Highlights about this special evening include:
    • Parade of Nations – The evening begins at 6:30pm with the Parade of Nations, an Olympic-style event held in the auditorium of Angell’s neighbor, New Life Church. Any kids who would like to participate may march with a sign and the flag of their country. This may be their country, or the country of their parents or other ancestors. Teachers and parents help the kids line up alphabetically, and when Mr. Court reads the name of their country, they get up on the stage and Mr. Court reads a few facts about their country.  Traditional dress is encouraged, but not necessary. We provide the sign and the flag.  You must sign up in order to march in the parade!  If you do not sign up your child in advance, we will ask him/her to sit in the audience.
    • World Market - Visit the bazaar-style World Market to learn about other countries in the gymnasium after the Parade of Nations.
    • World Buffet - Bring a dish to share and sample foods from other parts of the world. We hope to have dishes representing the various parts of the world. For your convenience, you can drop off your dish at the parent pick-up area before going to the Parade of Nations. We will bring the dish into the school for you.
  • Classroom Displays - Visit the Classroom Displays on the 1st and 2nd floors of the school building after the Parade of Nations. The teachers and students have been working hard on their classroom studies and the classes set up beautiful displays. Students can pick up an International Night Passport after the Parade of Nations and get their “passports” stamped at each of the displays. They can also pick We are running low on a few essential materials in the art room. If you can help, please send in donations of:
