Education in Action

The Chocolate Touch book club

The book club was a fun and delicious time. We summarized and illustrated the book by chapters while we enjoys drinking and eating chocolate (yoo-hoo drinks, brownies, chocolate cookies, and chocolate/cream rolls).

Next book club is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (February 11 from 2:30 to 4:00). We have plenty of books, so just let me know if you need one.

Megan was the Student of the Week!

Megan inspires to become a hair dresser when she gets older. Her favorite activity at school is gym, but she also enjoys reading The Babysitters Club books. Megan has three pets names Luna, Darcie, and Skintle. Furthermore, her favorite colors are blue, purple, and orange, and I can tell you she is an amazing basketball player. I hope you enjoyed getting to know a little more about Megan.
