At Gratz Brown Elementary, third grade enrichment students are participating in the Global Read Aloud. Created in 2010, the Global Read Aloud has a simple goal in mind, one book to connect the world. Classes participating in the event read aloud the same book and then try to make as many global connections as possible. This year participating students are reading A Boy Called BAT. Recently, the students received postcards from their partner school in Columbus, Texas.
GBE Students Learn about Scoliosis!
September 1 was established through a proclamation signed by the Governor of Missouri as Scoliosis Awareness Day.

Miss Smith advocates for early detection and prevention of scoliosis. Shown in the picture are students from Miss Crawford's 4th grade class after the reading of this book.
