Book Fair Fun!

Our Scholastic Book Fair is up and running!  The book fair is a great way to encourage reading and build home libraries.  It is also a great way to support our school as 50% of all purchases go directly to the school.

Today during their STREAM Special with Mrs. Poth, our Kindergarten students listened to the Dr. Seuss favorite "Ten Apples Up On Top", then engineered their own contraption to hold ten apples.
