Paws January Update:

We want to re-shift our Reading focus this year for PAWS& give our kids who may have gotten burnt out from annotations, another reading challenge for the Spring! We are working on putting this together, so sit tight for more information to come:)
----
In the meantime, our Gorrie Elves are working past the Holidays and delivering all of the wonderful annotated books to the Title one schools. We still welcome annotated books for the latter half of December and all of January and will be checking the bins the last day of the month to determine the monthly class winners!
