Our Pre-K and K classes have been exploring nursery rhymes. In 1st grade we have been comparing and contrasting different fairy tales.

Reading Rock Star Party, PLD Protocol, Upcoming Author Visit with Jennifer Holm

Last Friday we celebrated our sumeer Reading Rock Stars. Over 30 of our kids participated in a summer reading program. We signed the Readers Are Leaders banner, ate ice cream sundaes, and received prize bags loaded with book-related gifts from Avid Bookshop. We are very proud of our kids!

Last week we checked out over 400 laptops to our students and teachers. Every student grades 3-5 has the option to take their device home this year, provided their parents complete a training. Our first training is on September 18 @ 5:00. Students, make sure you follow these guidelines when using your devices.

Thursday, August 28, author Jennifer Holm will visit grades 3-5.  You can order her books in advance, or purchase when she visits. If you need an order form, stop by the Media Center.
