Welcome To Penn Elementary
This is Penn Elementary School, where we work hard

Reading Fair
PENN READING FAIR!

We are pleased to announce that we are having our first annual Reading Fair at Penn Elementary. This reading fair will have students selecting a great fiction book of their choice and interacting with it in a new way. The students will be making a tri-fold or poster display highlighting the important elements of the book that they have been learning in school. The goal is to energize readers and share great books with others. The week’s activities culminate on Wednesday evening (6:00- 8:00) with the Reading Fair Book presentations being displayed for viewing by families during the Penn Book Fair. Dues dates for the projects are:

  •  Monday, April 27th by 9:00am -  5th grade projects due
  •  Tuesday, April 28th by 9:00am - 4th grade projects due:
  •  Wednesday, April 29th by6 9:00am - 2nd & 3rd grade projects due
  •  Wednesday, April 29th - Evening Reading Fair Book Presentations (6pm - 8pm)
    • ​​Projects will be displayed for viewing by families during the Penn Book Fair

Spring Book Fair
Take Me Out to the Book Fair! 
 We will be open for business on Tuesday, April 28th through Tuesday, May 5th. Many activities are planned to make it a Book Fair to remember. Our baseball-themed fair will cover all the bases. 
  • Family Night on Wednesday, April 29th from 6pm-8pm will be a double-header when the Book Fair teams up with the school wide Reading Fair. Students will swing for the fence by creating a display board about one of their favorite books. Prizes will be awarded for the entries that hit it out of the park! Families can run the bases throughout the school to see the lineup of projects and Uncle Slam from the Potomac Nationals will be on deck to help you root for your favorite Penn player. And it wouldn’t be a ballgame without food! The Cafeteria Concession Stand will be serving up free hot dogs and chips! So suit up in your baseball jerseys and hats and help the home team bat a thousand at the fair. It’s a great place to catch a good book! PLAY BALL!
