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!

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.
