Dress as your Favorite Character

Wednesday, March 21st

To get ready for our Fiske Reads evening, we are encouraging children to dress as their favorite book character during the school day on Wednesday, March 21.  Last year we had the Cat in the Hat, Harry Potter, and Pippi Longstocking to name a few. I wonder who will show up this year?
