October Reading Celebration with Mrs. Brown

When teachers recieve student reading calendars at the end of every month, they give students reading tickets.  The number of reading tickets a student recieves is determined by how many minutes they read each week during the month.  These tickets are put into a big bin with all the reading tickets for every child in the school.  Then, one person from each class is drawn to have a Reading Celebration with Mrs. Brown.  These students had a fun time at their popcorn party!  Keep reading, Explorers!

September Treasure Winning Class

At our school we give out "treasures" to students that are doing good at our school.  They can get a treasure by simply walking quietly in the hall, picking up trash in the classroom, or being a friend to someone at recess.  Treasures are gold pieces of paper that have a coin on them.   When students receive a treasure, they write their name on it and put it in their class treasure chest.   At the end of the month, the class with the most treasures gets a "celebration".  Our school's September Treasure Winning Class is Miss Lambert's 4th Grade Class!  Way to go ... you are TREASURED!

First grade had a wonderful time at Scena Theater watching the play "Willy Wonka." The kids had lots of questions for the cast after the performance. We were a little chilly eating lunch at the park,  but it warmed up in time for us to enjoy the awesome play ground.  Thanks to the parents who went with us. It was a "scrumdiddlyumptius" day!!!
