EUREKA— Wearing pajamas to school, reading with study buddies, and enjoying popcorn and a movie are some of the fun activities Alice Birney School has planned for students on Mix It Up Monday. The school is encouraging its students to attend school on Monday, November 10 instead of taking a four-day weekend due to Veterans’ Day falling on Tuesday. There will be no school on Tuesday as Eureka City Schools’ six elementary schools, two middle schools and three high schools observe Veterans’ Day. Alice Birney staff members contributed to planning Mix It Up Monday as a way to encourage positive attendance.
The media is invited to Mix It Up Monday. Please be sure to check in at the school’s office.
Cross-age study buddies will spend one hour in the morning reading books together. An alternate recess and lunch schedule will follow which will allow study buddies to spend time at both recesses together and to eat their lunch together. The study buddies will also watch a movie together.
