Third Grade Spelling Bee

Submitted by sara.stout on Mon, 04/23/2012 - 17:44

On Thursday, March 29 the third grade held their annual spelling bee. Each class had their own spelling bees earlier in the week, but only the top three from each participated that afternoon. After some rigorous spelling and some tongue twisting words, Dreyton Whicker in Mrs. Morrise’s class won first place, followed closely behind by Karli Barclay in second, and Gideon Watkins in third. All of the participants did extremely well and studied hard. Great job to all of those who participated and congratulations to our winners!

First and Second-Grade Reading Winners

Submitted by sara.stout on Thu, 03/22/2012 - 18:13

This last month, Ms. Zylstra's first-grade class and Mrs. Stout's second-grade class, won their grade level competitions for most days read in the month. In order to win this prestigious award, the students must turn in their reading calendars and have read at least twenty minutes for the day to count. All the days are counted up and whichever class has the most days read for the month receives the reading trophy and fame (their picture in the paper) or fortune (a prize from the principal's treasure chest)! These classes worked hard to be the champions. Well done Bulldogs!

 I am posting a few pictures from Mrs. Stoddard's wedding. I really wanted to see pictures from her wedding and  thought that others might want to as well. So after a few months of begging, and a few weeks of procrastination :), here are a few of the beautiful pictures of when our Day became a Stoddard. Thanks Mrs. Stoddard for letting me post these!
