Teen Read Week 2010
Here are some photos from our Teen Read Week celebration last week. Now that I am *almost* recovered from the week, I can post these pics!
The entire school was able to meet with Mike Wimmer, who, as always, did a fantastic job. He really is able to reach the kids--and I'm always so amazed by his talent. That talent made it extra-special for our GT artistic kids to get to work with him in a small group setting the following day.
We also brought in the Ellen Trout Zoo---did you check out the *lovely* hissing roaches from Madagascar. They brought the cutest little hedgehog, too!
And then came a school favorite....our murder mystery days. I'm actually extending our TRW activites through tomorrow in order to be able to accommodate all the ELA classes. This year we took part in the Rock and Roll Over Dead mystery. Great fun was had by all!
Wrestlemania Reading Challenges went out last week, NaNoWriMo preparations are in full swing, and the school is still in the midst of our One Book, One School---The Hunger Games.
Hopefully with all these activities each and every member of our school family will experience something wonderful and amazing.
