Week of March 11: Wacky Wednesday Week – Read lots of Dr. Seuss and other fun picture books

– We’ll have a fun Pin the Hat on the Cat Game at lunch time

– Like the book, we’ll have our own Wacky Wednesday and dress wacky like Dr. Seuss characters or even just wear a wacky hat like the Cat in the Hat.

Congratulations to our Ballroom Team, they placed 2nd overall in the competition that was held at BYU!

Our 5th/6th grade team for Knowledge Bowl competed this weekend, we are still waiting for the results to see how we did.  More information will be coming.
