SCHOOL ANNOUNCEMENTS
HUMPHREY

á
Somerville has embarked on the "One Book, One School" initiative.á As a school we are reading "Humphrey".á

Humphrey the hamster enjoys being Room 26's classroom pet. He adores Ms. Mac, and every day brings new learning and experiences. Then Ms. Mac unexpectedly leaves; worse, returning teacher Mrs. Brisbane despises small furry creatures--leaving Humphrey both brokenhearted and worried about his future. Going home on weekends with school staff members and students helps, revealing diverse, often surprising stories and situations that allow both Humphrey and his human caretakers to learn from one another. Humphrey, a delightful, irresistible character, is big hearted, observant, and creative, and his experiences, whether escaping a nosy dog or helping an immigrant family speak English, range from comedic to touching. His lively, first-person narrative, filled with witty commentary on human and hamster behavior, makes for an engaging, entertaining read that illustrates "you can learn a lot about yourself by getting to know another species."
STORY PIRATES
We are grateful to Home and School for bringing us Story Pirates on Friday, September 5.á They entertained us, made us laugh and made us think!á We enjoyed sharing our stories with each other and with the Pirates.á Somerville can't wait till the Story Pirates return in December!
