Our fifth grade ambassadors, Jacob, Preasia, Brittney, Amaar, and Cayla, presented our Board of Education members with copies of Flora and Ulysses, the book we chose for TJ Connor Reads. We have been reading the book at home with our families. In case students were not able to read together, we had some of our past and current faculty create podcasts of the chapters for students to listen to at school.
Our first Fun Friday activity was also last Friday. Each class wrote a poem about Flora and Ulysses. Some wrote the poem as a class (younger grades) and others wrote their own poems (older grades). Students were encouraged to display their poems in the halls. As we continue to read our book as a school community, we have more Fun Friday activities planned.
