Book Character Parade Not a Halloween Parade: Promoting Literacy at all Ages

Fayetteville, GA- Fayette Elementary School is a Pre-Kindergarten to Fifth Grade school this year. A combination of Hood Avenue Primary (Pre-k to 2nd) and Fayette Intermediate School (3rd to 5th) due to budget cuts in the school system; this new school still continued tradition of the Annual Book Character Parade this year. In previous years’ Pre-School to grades 2 were able to participate in the alternate Halloween Costume Parade; however this year it was limited to the lower grades up to 1st grade. Students were encouraged to do a “Story web” of their favorite book and come in on October 31, 2013 wearing original costumes of their favorite character from that book to parade around the school that morning. The upper grades completed their “story webs” and could only bring in a pumpkin decorated from their favorite book character. Students from all grades, Parents, Teachers and Administrators gathered in the halls on October 31, 2013 after the morning announcements to watch the highly anticipated Book Character Parade pass by!

New Devices Falling From the Apple Tree this Fall

 New Devices Falling From the Apple Tree this Fall

It is reported that this event will unveil the newest iPhone(s); yes two new iPhone’s will be falling from the Apple tree this fall. The iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C will be in our hands and hearts in less than a week; are you ready?

According to macrumors.com, the iPhone 5S is the updated version of the iPhone 5 we already love, but the iPhone 5C will be the more cost affordable iPhone that I have been waiting for. A cheaper model would work just as well with the same operating system; but the make of the product is reported as having colorful plastic shells. Following suit of other companies with lower costing smart phones; Apple is reported to have colors like green, yellow, red, blue and of course white for the iPhone 5C.

It has also been reported the iPhone 5S will have a fingerprint scanner on the home button as well as a much improved rear camera. Most importantly, to me anyway since my last name is Golden, is the new color option of the Gold/Champagne and White! For full specs and pricing on these devices follow up with Apple after the official event this Tuesday, September 10th.
