Poppy Poster Contest
The fourth graders are participating in the poppy poster contest sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary. On Friday (4/7) they received the guidelines for the contest and a poster board to use. The posters should be handed in no later than Friday, April 21.
I Scream for Books
Since Book It is over for this year, we will use a different reading incentive program to encourage the children to read during this last quarter of the school year. The program is called “I Scream for Books”. We are asking the students to read 100 minutes each of the next six weeks. Every week the students will receive a chart to record their minutes on. For every 2 weeks that the students meet the reading goal, they will receive a small reward. Any students who read for all six weeks will be rewarded with an ice cream party. We hope that all of the students will participate. Reading is a lifelong skill, one that can always be improved upon.

Here are two helpful websites that you and your child have access to. IXL is a website geared towards helping your child practice math skills. Spelling City can help your child practice our weekly spelling words. Both of these sites can be accessed through my website under Cool Sites. These sites also require logins and passwords. If your child has forgotten these, please contact me, and I will share that information with you.
