The Squeaky-clean Award

The Squeaky-clean was presented to Caleb for having a neat and organized desk. His papers were correctly placed in the proper folders, thus ensuring he knows exactly where to find them. Excellent job keeping everything tidy and in their places. Unfortunately, Caleb was not available for a photo, so he will get his photo opportunity next week along with our next luck Squeaky-clean award winner.

Reading Around the Room

The students are about one-third on the way around the second wall, but have begun to slow down compared to their pace in February. Please encourage your child to read at home and have them complete a shamrock to add to the wall for each book they complete. The class will receive an extra gym or recess if they can go around the entire room with books read.

Think Spring!!!
