Bedtime Stories At Blue Ridge
Submitted By Stephnie Thornton

Dressed in pajamas featuring everything from princesses to frogs, and carrying everything from blankets to teddy bears, children gathered at Blue Ridge Elementary School on February 19 for a special story time. The first ever “Bedtime Stories at Blue Ridge” provided the opportunity for families to spend an enjoyable evening together dining on pizza, making a craft and enjoying a story.

Miss Lynette Daniels read “If You Were A Penguin” at the first Bedtime Stories at Blue Ridge event.

The free event featured a penguin theme, with Miss Lynette Daniels reading “If You Were a Penguin,” by Wendell and Florence Minor. The book is this year’s selection for Pennsylvania’s One Book, Every Young Child program, designed to encourage daily reading with children. Families also made penguin crafts and enjoyed a visit by a special character, Penelope the Penguin.

“Bedtime Stories at Blue Ridge” was made possible through a joint effort with Blue Ridge School District, Blue Ridge PTO and Susquehanna County CARES (Childcare, Agencies, Resources and Educational Services.) CARES is a non-profit group dedicated to enhancing quality early care and education in the county, and supports Pennsylvania’s Promise for Children, because every child is Pennsylvania’s future.

BR Fourth Graders Are Authors And Illustrators

Blue Ridge fourth graders had the opportunity to be authors and illustrators in Ms. Sarrah Dibble’s art class. Eighty students completed an original story and illustrations in order to create a thirty-two page hardcover book. Students wrote a story, which after editing, was written in pencil into the book. Next, the students drew illustrations and added color. Students also designed the cover art. The last step was going over the story with a lettering pen. Students were able to share their new books with first grade students. Pictured are fourth graders Dylan Lewis and Alex Konsur, sharing their original books with first grader, Ashley Torres.
