Welcome back and Happy New Year! This week we will begin our reading challenge for the months of January and February. The challenge for the Gold Readers will be to read or be read to or listen to a book Monday through Thursday and to turn in a reading log each week. The challenge for the Silver Readers will be to read Monday through Thursday also but there may be a few weeks that will be missed. Everyone who is reading throughout January and February will receive a t-shirt.
During the last home game and senior night in March, all second graders and their families are invited to sit with me and watch a wonderful basketball game as the U of I beats yet another visiting team. Their t-shirt will get them in free to the game. During half-time, I will line up with my second grade students and we will walk out to your applause! We will join other students from Moscow and surrounding towns to be recognized for our hard work! I hope you and your student can make it!
Thank you for all the wonderful surprises we found in our stockings! Their was an audible gasp as students began to look through their stocking! Thank you for your help with our party. The cookies were delicious. The mothers that came to demonstrate "Zip-Lock Bag Ice Cream" were so valued that day! I hope some of you got to try the recipe.
