At McDowell Elementary School, Mrs. Mullin's group of second-grade readers got a bit of a scare after reading “That Bear Is Back.”
The story describes a boy's encounter with a bear in his bedroom.
Each of the students created a monster hiding in their bedroom then wrote about their scary creature. The monsters and stories are displayed in the school hall under the warning "Danger, do not open!"
A group of sassy McDowell Elementary School second graders read the Giggler story, “Crazy Chewing Gum” and went crazy over the book!
Each Student selected a gum-covered character to "turn into" and wrote about what happened to them. This group, with ATA Ms. Donna's help, had fun doing this activity.
The Sixth Grade Academy's front showcase has been decorated in honor of “March is Reading Month.” The display has the staff hiding their face behind a book and students have to guess who it is. The students are having a great time trying to figure out who is behind each book.
Here are photographs out of Eureka Heights Elementary School's second- and third-grade spring concert.

Professional wrestler and candidate for state representative Terrance Gerin (Rhyno) came to talk to the students at Myers Elementary School recently about setting goals and working hard to achieve them.
