The KC Comets came to visit and they offered us a chance to win some tickets to watch them play. It is a reading challenge. I know a few students are participating. I hope that with the deadline looming, a bunch of students turn in their logs on December 12. The students then can earn a ticket for one of three games: January 27, February 2 or February 16. I am excited about this opportunity and hope it is something they offer us every year.
The second book fair ends this Friday, December 7. The first book fair made a profit of over 600 dollars. This book fair has not been as successful and will not show a profit. Our Prince and Princess contest made over 250 dollars for All For Books that we will spend on the next fair because it will be a BOGO fair. Our All For Books is going to improve our classroom libraries. Our final fair will be in April.
We are improving our space every year. We bought new tables and are working to make more writable spaces. In collaboration with the Instructional Coach and teachers, we are adding materials that will help students and staff with curricular needs plus spaces for collaboration needs plus spaces for personal reflection. Students are adding leave their mark projects to improve the space as well. The space is a very team oriented design. Every year it is a different space and environment. Stop by and see it and us!
