Spring Reading Incentive

Last Thursday we held a kick-off for our Spring reading incentive. The theme is pirates. Each third grader is asked to read 15-20 minutes 5 nights a week and return their reading log signed. We will continue to use our regular reading logs and continue returning them on Mondays.

Below are the prizes:
Week 1: Ring pop and pirate bookmark
Week 2: Root Beer Float
Week 3: Sword pen and pirate tattoo
Week 4: Free recess

Grand prize: If the students return 3 out of the 4 weeks and have read at least 75 minutes on each of them they will get to attend a school-wide pajama party and watch "Peter Pan."

Happy Reading!

March PE Update from Mr. Dunlap

We have a major activity taking place during the month of March. The
third and fourth grades will be participating in the annual Jump Rope
for Heart event. This is a fundraiser for the American Heart
Association. I will be giving the kids a lot more information about
the fundraiser during the first week of March. They will bring home a
fundraiser packet and have a few weeks to raise money. It is not
required that all kids raise money, but strongly encouraged as all the
money goes against the fight against heart disease and stroke. We will
jump rope during the last two P.E. classes before spring break. This
is a fun activity that goes to a great cause and the kids can earn
some prizes along the way.
