Students were able to enjoy many stories by many fabulous readers from our school and community. We love reading and Trixie came too! Here are just a few of the readers that stopped by to share their love of reading.
Students had a great time learning and creating with our Holiday STEM activities. Cannot wait to see our readers back in January. Happy Holidays!
Every student at Alton received 5 books and A blanket to take home. What a wonderful thing! Books and snuggling up with a blanket make reading fun!
We are working on introducing coding with algorithms and unplugged activities with Kindergarten this week in preparation for Hour of Code next week. They are doing an amazing job!
