A HUGE THANK YOU to all that participated in our first Literacy O' Lantern Contest! We are all so very impressed by the fabulously, creative submissions!
At our staff meeting on Monday, all the teachers filled out a ballot. They each voted on their favorite three student lanterns and 1 staff member pick. This proved to be very difficult with 50 awesome entries!
Zoe Haberman, Mrs. O'Brien's class - The Day the Crayons Came Home
Kaitlyn Strom, Mrs. Plotkin's class - Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus.
Mrs. Gilbert, 2nd Grade - BFG
The winning students were Parade Marshals leading our school Halloween parade, and Mrs. Gilbert will have a recess duty covered for a day!
I’m grateful for so many participants that took part in such a wonderful, worthwhile experience together with their families. The whole contest most definitely inspired others and got our whole school community talking about books!
