March Book Study: Harold and the Purple Crayon
Four-year-old Harold can bring the world of his imagination to life simply by using his big purple crayon. Fancy a moonlit walk? No problem for Harold, who draws a moon and a path that leads to a forest. Need a snack? A few quick strokes of the crayon and Harold furnishes a picnic with nothing but pies. And when it's time for bed, Harold draws himself a comfy one, climbs in, adds some warm covers, and goes to sleep.

STEAM NIGHT 2019
Richton's 1st STEAM Night was a successful event of self-exploration adventures through SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, ARTS, and MATH. Families made slime, coded robots, gave robot commands, build a marble wall and more. We raffled off prizes for STEAM toys for five lucky families to continue enjoying STEAM activities together. The Matteson Public Library and Richton Park Library also allowed families that had their library cards to check out STEAM books and kits to take home.
We are Scientists. We are Technicians. We are Engineers. We are Artist. We are Mathematicians.
