It was wonderful to see so many families at our Title 1 Reading Night Wednesday.  We want to encourage every student to love reading, and our teachers used this opportunity to share their classroom literacy model.  We appreciate having two Title 1 teachers, Miss Stack and Miss Sault, to support all learners.  Thank you for supporting the Scholastic Book Fair!

Kindergarten Scamp Camp

Most students coming to Kindergarten are enjoying three five hour days this week to make the new school transition easier. Miss Gauding and Miss Stack have a nice balance of activities and play as the children become familiar with new friends, the classroom and the lunchroom.  Grant funds have made this program possible.
