Friday was a fun filled day to end our week of celebrating Read Across America and Dr. Seuss! Kindergarten enjoyed all of the stories 📚 making the Lorax 🌴 Cat in the Hat faces 😺 Hop on Pop in the hallway 💥 and a trip to the movies to watch Horton Hears a Who! and a eat a special snack (thanks to the Goodhand Theater and H.E.L.P.S) 🍿🎬! Not to be confused with Dr. Seuss, Kindergarten also got to visit Dr. Fuss this last week to learn all about dental health! 🪥🦷

The Read-A-Thon starts tomorrow! Signup sheets went home with Mary Lynch students yesterday, as well as paper reading logs. The goal of the Read-A-Thon is to encourage students to read both at school and outside of school. The incentives they can earn through the Read-A-Thon are designed with that in mind. Students can participate in a variety of ways. 1: they can just track their reading minutes either online or on the paper log and earn some prizes along the way 2: they can just ask for donations to benefit our school library. 75% of the donations made stay in our school! They will receive prizes for their efforts. 3: they can do both of the above! Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or for a new signup sheet.
Yesterday at ELITE, the kids had a blast making musical instruments. They made paper plate tambourines, plastic egg maracas, and the favorite was a popsicle stick harmonica. 🎶🎶
Yesterday brought all the hats and stripes for Cat in the Hat Day in Kindergarten! A guest reader, too! 😊📚
Last evening we had our season's end Team Dinner and there definitely was a lot to be thankful for!! We would like to thank Heather and Mike Norberg for their willingness to host our team and provide an amazing atmosphere!! We kicked things off by thanking our seniors that had been with us throughout the past 4 seasons and had all the players sign a basketball to each to show our gratitude for all their contributions. We then thanked our senior manager, Katie Kilgore, for her dedication to our program these past 4 seasons as well. Our 4 seniors that played all season were then given a memento to remember the season and our foreign exchange student that joined us late in the season was also recognized by giving him hopefully something that he can remember us by. Last but not least we were able to hand out our WTC regular season Championship medals to our 13 varsity players for the first time since 2013. We thank all our players for their hard work and an excellent season that we will all cherish for years to come. #LonghornPride"
