This is how we build readers!

It's rolling out slowly. We started with Tinkercad and a limited group of GT students and other 3rd - 5th graders. As we all get more comfortable with the process we're opening it up. In fact just as of 3/24 we downloaded a new app called Blokify onto 8 of our devices and designing became even easier!
End of the Year and Summer Reading
All library books will be due on May 19th. We'd always rather students are keeping their accounts current ... reading and returning books in a timely manner for new titles! If you aren't seeing new library books regularly please check backpacks for notices with the titles listed. If you're not sure email Ms. Oliverson at firstname.lastname@example.org. Look for summer reading program materials (SAPL and B&N are two examples ... read and earn FREE BOOKS! Plus the public library puts on fun free summer programs!) around that same time.
SIx Flags Six Hour Reading tickets usually come around the first week in May.
