Students were rewarded with a fun attendance party on Wednesday for having 2 or less absences during the second term (2 tardies = 1 absence) Mrs. DeGraffenried and Mrs. Penrod planned a fun, modified version of dodgeball played with rolls of toilet paper for each grade to play. The kids had so much fun!
The 4th-6th grade students were excited to hear from teenage author McKenzie Wagner last week. She came and talked with them about following their dreams and never giving up. Students were able to submit a short story in the weeks leading up to her visit and some were chosen to eat lunch and visit with McKenzie before the assembly. During the assembly the students participated in a fun contest and 6th Grader Carlisle Brownfield won a copy of her newest book "Casters of Doovrik"
Last week the students were rewarded for their at home reading by attending a reading carnival held in the gym. Throughout the first semester, they were given tickets when they completed their mandatory reading minutes every week. They were able to take these tickets and use them to buy books, school supplies and they were able to play games and win prizes with them. Fun was had by all. We will be having another carnival in the spring before school is out, so please make sure your students are handing in their reading minutes every week to earn those tickets!
