The Book Fit Challenge

During the month of January, our school is holding a fundraiser called The Book Fit Challenge. We are working in collaboration with the Boosterthon Company to raise money for new Media Center furniture and additional mimios for teachers that desperately want one but do not yet have one.

On Monday, January 5, the Boosterthon team will be here to explain to you all aspects of the fundraising. What I need from each of you is a commitment to being a cheerleader for your students in encouraging them to get pledges and donations for each "reading lap" they take.

We need this money to update our Media Center and for more Mimios!!! Take the CHALLENGE and support this fundraiser!!!

STEAM Community Page

I have created a Arcado Elementary STEAM Community Page and added each school staff member as a member. This is a great place to add files on STEAM projects as well as share pictures of your class projects.

I encourage you to add and share!!!
