8th Grade Battle of the Books Team
FIRST PLACE IN THE STATE OF IOWA
April 28, 2022
I am so proud of Caitlin, Evie, Stella, Bela, Regan, and Cassie on our Battle of the Books team. This group read 16 novels and met with Mrs. Lind over lunch breaks to discuss these books. They competed with over 40 teams across the area, answering questions and sharing their knowledge about these books. Their love of reading and dedication to the program helped them win 1st Place in the State of Iowa. This is an achievement that cannot be taken lightly! Congratulations, girls!
Please don't forget the LEGO League Showcase which will begin at 6:30 PM, Friday, April 29, in Dutcher Gym. These kids have some amazing things to share with you! A big "Thank You" to all of our volunteer coaches who gave their time to make this program a success.
P.S.: Please remember that Shamrock Shuffle registration closes at midnight on Sunday, May 1.
Tomorrow is Charger Friday!
We are so fortunate to provide a K-8 Spanish program at St. Patrick Catholic School. The students not only learn to speak Spanish, but Mrs. Crawford also shares the culture with students. This morning she shared the history of Cinco de Mayo with 3rd and 4th grade students. She related the Mexican people's defense of their country to what is going on in Ukraine today.
SATURDAY, MAY 7
Registration is open now through midnight, Sunday, May 1. Invite your friends!
