The time finally arrived for an "It Pays to Read" assembly. Reading tickets were in, prizes were set out on the stage, the bikes were displayed, now all that was needed were the kids and in they came.
There were over 70 children who won prizes in K-3, and over 70 who won prizes in 4-6 grade. They were all so energetic and cheered for each other as they won.
Our bike winners were Adrian Garcia in 2nd grade, and Zachary Adams in 4th grade. Congratulations and keep reading!
The character theme being taught in February is "courage". Courage means doing the right thing even if it is difficult, and facing your fears with confidence – being brave.
It takes courage to do the right thing. Stand up for what is right, even if you stand alone.
The following activity shows what happens when we have courage.
The Courageous Egg
Materials: Wide mouthed glass or jar, uncooked rice, egg.
