Young Readers Week
Thank you to all of our guest "celebrities"!
Mr. Rhyne from Boys & Girls Club (L) Dr. Washington (R)
National Young Readers week is an annual event that was
co-founded by Pizza Hut and the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress.
To make this a special week we are recruiting local “celebrities” and community "leaders" to re aloud a
favorite book in our classrooms and discuss the importance of reading for college and career readiness.
Our Fall Scholastic Book Fair was great- thank you PTCO!
“Math Family Game Night”
Was a Huge Success! Thank you Magnet Families for supporting your child's education!
Because school was in session on Veteran's Day our students had a wonderful opportunity to see our
High School JROTC in action!
The colors were presented and students saw two competition "spinners". It was a super day to learn what Veteran's Day is all about. Special thanks to Commander Boettcher and the students from the JROTC program for visiting our school.
The weather is getting colder and students go outside everyday unless it is
10 Degrees or below wind chill.
Parents please help us by dressing your child appropriately.
All students need a warm coat, hat, gloves or mittens.
