Scavenger Hunt Winners

The winners of the October Scavenger Hunt are as follows:

  • Mrs. Stadt’s Class: Most students to participate in the blog hunt.  They will receive one hour of “Principal Time” in the coming week!
  • And, Jordyn, in Mrs. Greenlund’s class who will receive a gift card to Barnes and Noble and lunch OUT to a restaurant of her choice with the principal, Mrs. Reagan!

There were 120 students who participated in the scavenger hunt.  Each of the participates will be entered into the reading counts drawing…and this will take place on December 15.

Posted below is a slide show of the hour I spent with Mrs. McDonald’s class-–winners of the September Scavenger Hunt.   We spent an hour writing together in a top secret location.  See if you can tell from the photos where we were!

And…we will have one final scavenger hunt in November that is focused on teachers.  The prizes will be a little different with more chances to win.  Watch the blog for clues.

Scavenger Hunt Winners: September

This past September we kicked off our first BLOG scavenger hunt! The goal of the hunt was to increase the readership of our blogs by offering prizes for students who participated.  The theme of the September scavenger hunt was “teacher vacations”.

Each student who participated (140 total) received a ticket for our upcoming Reading Counts drawing.  In addition, the classroom that had the most participants (Mrs. McDonald’s 3rd grade) won and hour of teaching time with ME as their teacher.  Finally, all students who participated were entered into a blog drawing and one student was selected–winning a $10 gift card to Barnes and Noble and a pumpkin carving kit!  Congratulations, Ray!

We have just kicked off our second scavenger hunt, TEACHERS HAVE HOBBIES, TOO! To participate, read through the blogs and enter your finds in the survey answer form. Happy Hunting…and thank you for reading our blogs, too!
