Be a Reading Superhero This Summer!

Before school ends, students will make superhero masks for the summer. Like last year, these will have the students’ usernames and passwords on them for students to record their summer reading. Students in grades 1 through 5 have already been given this information. From now until the end of summer, our students and staff have FREE access to this site! It is a digital book website. Mrs. Broadhurst will be teaching students how to use this site before they leave for the summer. This site is available on any device and has a read-aloud category, a dictionary, and many other features!

Summer School Visits the Etowah Public Library!

On July 13, our summer school classes visited the Etowah Public Library. We took our bags that we had painted earlier in the week with us. Mrs. Joyce Crain, the director, read a story to us. She talked to us about how to get a library card. Then, Miss Debbie, a volunteer, showed us a table full of sea shells and let us pick out shells to take home! We then saw another table of shells and they helped us identify the different varieties. Mrs. Crain gave us a tour of the library and explained how everything was set up. We then read books and some of us checked out books. Mrs. Crain gave us a box of crafts to do once we returned to school. The craft was to make fish out of CD’s! We had a great time!
