Summer Reading Challenge

Posted April 24th, 2016 by Ms. Durchslag

Many of you have heard of “Flat Stanley” and his travel adventures. This summer, Campanelli has its own “Flat  Cody”.  Your child will be bringing home Flat Cody on the last day of school.  As you travel this summer, whether close or far, snap a selfie of your family with Flat Cody and then post the picture and a short blurb about your adventure to the Campanelli Facebook page.  Then log on frequently to see what your Campanelli friends are doing this summer.  The Facebook page can be accessed from the Campanelli website.  We look forward to seeing and reading about all of the adventures the Campanelli community experiences this summer!!
