Where success is a tradition

February in the Junior High

Posted by Paul Conrad at 2/13/2017

There many exciting events happening the month of February for grades 7 and 8.  
February is "I Love to Read" month and we have a competition between 7th and 8th graders to see which grade can read the most minutes during the month. The chart shows where classes currently are in the competition. The winning class will earn the opportunity to purchase $300 worth of books for Mrs. Gilk's grade 7 room or Mrs. Schmitz's grade 8 room. Reading is a skill which holds great value across all learning and all content areas.
