And a few numbers to summarize where we landed. Thanks to all of you who volunteered!
Our Chili Cook-Off and Bingo Night was a ton of fun! Thanks to all those who brought chili and other goodies. The winner for favorite chili went to Reese Christensen in 1st grade for the Kids chili and 2nd place was a tie with Chris Gupta and Chris Nettles! Winner of the Most Creative chili was Ravdin Family for the white turkey and poblano chili. Bingo was a hit as well. Thanks to Shalini Nilakantan, Lisa Christensen and the other volunteers who made this happen!
All QAE families are invited to join us for the Families of Color meeting on Thursday, Nov. 21st from 6-7:30pm in the QAE Chill Room (by the cafeteria).
Please join us and help plan for our winter celebration.
More info on games club will follow. Questions? Please contact Kay Dumlao Doherty at email@example.com. See you on Thursday!
QAE has been lucky to have Book-It Repertory Theatre perform at our school over the last few years. On Thursday, Nov. 7th at 8am, Book-It will be performing an adaptation of the book: My Name is Celia/Me Llamo Celia.
Book-It Theatre performs at QAE three times per year, supported by our PTSA in the past and supported this year by our SPS Creative Approach grant. All classes will read the book in advance. Stick around after drop-off for the performance—parents and preschoolers are welcome to attend!
We'll be honoring veterans during our annual assembly on Friday starting at 8:15am (and remember, no school on Monday!). All families are welcome to join us for this special assembly. We need your help—if you or a member of your family are a veteran we'd love if you shared your reflections with our students.
Got a can't-miss secret chili recipe up your sleeve? Or just like eating? Either way, please RSVP for the QAE Chili Cook-Off that's taking place at the school next Wednesday, Nov. 13th at the school. You vote to pick the best chili winners and enjoy fun prizes for Bingo winners! We’ll also have other treats for sale (cash only) with lots of fun all around. Find out more...
Molly Brooks’ illustrations have appeared in The Village Voice, The Guardian, The Boston Globe, Time Out New York, The Nashville Scene, The Riverfront Times, The Toast, BUST Magazine, ESPN social, Sports Illustrated online, and others. She will be coming to QAE on Monday, Nov. 18th at 9am to talk to 3rd-5th grade students about the process of writing, illustrating, and revising a graphic novel, followed by Q&A.
Her original graphic novel series Sanity & Tallulah (the second book in the series JUST came out) is available for purchase beforehand so that the author can sign copies after her talk. If you would like a personalized signed copy of the book, please fill out the form below and return it to your child's teacher or Dr. Valdez in the library before the event.
Here's part of a review of Sanity & Tallulah:
"Sanity & Tallulah is the best kind of science fiction, full of imaginative ideas and crazy possibilities but fundamentally focused on characters and relationships. This is a diverse future centered on family, but Brooks doesn’t lose sight of the classic adventure structure, where two girls use their determination, smarts, and bravery to save their home."
