March Mad About Reading

Ask your child about all the activities going on around the school in March to focus on reading. We have a Minutes to Win It Challenge going on in some classrooms,   Owls in the Family, a school wide read-a-loud, a Mad About Reading Challenge Bracket where students are voting on their favorite books, a Twitter Challenge, guest readers, book trivia and more. It will be a month full of reading joy!

Habit 2 Celebration

We had our monthly Celebration today. Each month we meet together as a community to celebrate models of Leadership. Today was focused on Habit 2- Begin With The End in Mind. This habit is about having a mission, setting and tracking goals and taking ownership of your efforts. We are so proud of our  students who  were recognized at today's Celebration as models of Habit 2.

We are so excited to celebrate!
Practicing being a good audience.
A Suessical Trio!
