BRING YOUR COINS! STU CRU IS HOSTING A PENNY DRIVE FUNDRAISER

Student Council is hosting a Penny Drive. This is a fundraiser for a non-profit organization called The Right Relief which is run by a former Country Dale teacher, Mrs. Mealy. Her organization provides meals to caregivers in need in our communities. During the week of February 22nd-25th, you can bring in pennies and dollars to donate to your grade level. You can also bring in any silver coins to add to another grade level’s bucket which will count against that grade level. This is a competition! The grade level that raises the most will win a prize!

COUNTRY DALE BATTLE OF THE BOOKS

The 5th-grade students at Country Dale Elementary had the opportunity to participate in Battle of the Books. Four students were in a group and had a list of 20 books to read. Then, they were asked questions about each book. The top 3 teams will move onto the semifinals next week. Congratulations to all BOB participants.

WI BUS DRIVER APPRECIATION WEEK

This week (Feb 14-18) is Wisconsin School Bus Driver Appreciation Week. If you click on the attached picture, you can print off a copy and have your child(ren) color the page and hand this to your bus driver as a way of showing appreciation!

SORA ONLINE E-BOOK CHECK-OUT IS SOARING!

In the 2021 calendar year, Sora had over 1 million checkouts from the 200+ participating districts. Huge milestone! Franklin remained at the top with checkouts (and still is up there) with a whopping 42,024 checkouts last year. Thank you to the teachers who have helped to promote this! A special thanks to our ITL aides in our libraries for showing the students how to access the ebooks and magazines one on one, by class, small group, or just by walking down the hall talking to a student about ebooks. You are all wonderful and are helping the students to pursue their love of reading!


Here are the directions sheets for how to access materials in Sora:
