March is Book Month at ICSV and we're doing all sorts of fun activities to celebrate books and reading. We recently had a Book Character Costume Party. All the elementary kids and teachers dressed up like a book character - both fiction and non-fiction "characters" were present. The costumes this year were some of the most impressive I've seen in my four years here. Check out the Sears Tower in the picture above! And Julia won first place in the costume judging for her Star Wars character costume. Well done, Julia!
At the end of the party, all the book characters assembled in the school cafeteria for bug cupcakes! The teachers had so much fun making these and the kids loved eating them!
