Camp Wanna-Read-a-Lot!!

We are winding down another year of Camp Wanna-Read-a-Lot!  It is so much fun to read in tents with flashlights "all night long" and it signals the end to another year of Carol Holt Library.  Books are being turned in daily and soon winners will be drawn to pick prizes if they are clear in the library.  Look high, look low, look everywhere you know and find those books!!

Kindness Challenge accepted!

Following our wonderful author visit with Donna Janell Bowman, I decided our students need to take Kindness Challenges during the month of April when it's easy to forget that we need to be kind to each other.  Challenge accepted!

Each colorful slip of paper has been signed by a student acknowledging they met at least one of the four challenges announced each week.

Hopefully, this will help our campus think and choose kindness all year but especially at the end of the school year!

Choose Kindness!

Our visiting author, Donna Janell Bowman, will be visiting with all of our students on April 2.  Her book, Step Right Up: How Doc and Jim Key Taught the World about Kindness, is on the 2018-2019 Texas Bluebonnet Award master list.  All classes have heard the book and have taken the Kindness Pledge Mrs. Bowman offers on her website.  We look forward to hearing more about the unique characters, Doc Key and his horse, Jim. 





We will also celebrate the book birthday of her latest book, Abraham Lincoln's Dueling Words.

Honoring our Veterans

November 11 is a special day in the US to honor our country's veterans.  It is also a time to remember those men and women who gave their lives defending our country.
Veterans Day is to be known as "a celebration to honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good." - U.S. Dept of Veteran Affairs, http://www.va.gov/opa/vetsday/vetdayhistory.asp
