The Read Across America program has officially kicked off in Ms. Julia Duncan's 2nd grade classroom at Montpelier School this morning. According to Mrs. Duncan, students are working on identifying the key details of a beginning, middle, and end of a story.

Check out the outstanding efforts of Mrs. Abby Fullenkamp's class at Northside! "We haven’t been able to go outside for recess since Christmas break. So, we found an inside recess project to complement our Black History Month unit. The kids worked so hard on this... They were so concerned about staying in the lines so the pictures would fit together perfectly. I’m so proud of them, and we learned a lot! - Mrs. Fullenkamp #BlackHistoryMonth
Cubs spread the ❤️ Northside has been working hard to show support and kindness to two groups: military members across the globe and children in foster care across the country. Students made 599 pieces of art and letters to spread this love across the world. #WeAreCubsProud
Warmer temps this week have allowed the Kodiaks in Mrs. Kylee Redford's class at Montpelier Elementary a chance to go outside for recess. According to Mrs. Redford, it's sidewalk chalk for the win! (Hurry up, spring! We like outdoor recess!)
