Congratulations students!!

Students in 1st - 8th grade were given a challenge at the beginning of the school year. If they surpassed last year's schoolwide Accelerated Reader points they would get to tape Mrs. Ragusa to the wall. Well, they exceeded last year's AR total by 6,950 points. On Tuesday every student in those grades participated in taping Mrs. Ragusa to the wall. The school total for the year is 32,510 AR points! Great Job!

Thank you Mrs. Ragusa for being such a good sport!

Please give blood for Gavin!
