    BARNES & Noble Pajama Night

    Congratulations to Coconut Palm and to our Media Specialist, Mrs. Llorens!

    Coconut Palm won 2nd place in the Scholastic 2011 Fall National Book Fair Contest. This is what Scholastic wrote about Coconut Palm:

    Welcome to Starship Cocoprise” was the theme for the Coconut Palm Elementary School fall Book Fair. A Teacher Preview filled with yummy alien-themed treats started off the week’s events. Each teacher who attended filled out Classroom Wish Lists and was entered into a drawing to win prizes. Classes participated in a book-themed spaceship poster contest. The entries were used to decorate the school hallways. Other alien and outer space decorations filled the school from floor to ceiling. During Family Night, each student was issued a passport. Each time a student completed a task, a sticker was placed in the booklet. More than 500 passports were turned in for a chance at winning raffles. Teachers and students all dressed in costume for the space theme and the featured event was a “Men in Black” dance performance featuring dozens of students from several classes.

    WAY TO GO!
