Snow Day Readers ROCK!



The best part of the snow days:  Seeing photos of Georgetown kids READING!  Thank you to parents for encouraging your readers and sending the photos my way.   Mrs. VandenBerg (our super librarian) has added your words to your totals.


I had planned to get another incentive (math) set up and posted today, however, much of my school day included “calendar surgery” to reschedule meetings and teacher observations as well as other odd jobs that are part of being a principal.  Also, the longer I worked with the sunshine coming in the window, the more I thought, “We will be back to normal tomorrow…no worries if I can’t get to this.”  Please, let us be back to normal tomorrow!

For those wondering about how many days we receive before we make up days, the answer is SIX.  Today was day SEVEN.  Our superintendent, Mr. Ceglarek, has been working throughout the day to create a plan to communicate to parents and staff.   Bottom line for all of us who work with kids:  One snow day is magical and romantic, beyond that it is lost instruction time — and we MISS the CHILDREN!

Hoping for normalcy tomorrow,

Mrs. Reagan

Snow Day Readers and More

Reader 3My inbox is being flooded with photos of readers.  I have also gotten a few names of readers — some of them camera shy so they only want their name and book title shared.  That works for me…you get extra credit for reading on a snow day with or without a photo!

I have received some questions from parents regarding the million words club.  Mrs. VandenBerg, our librarian, keeps a tally of the word count from year to year–it carries over.   It is possible for all kids to become MILLIONAIRES by the time they reach 5th grade…so get those book titles into school.  The information on the club can be found here:  HOW TO BECOME A MILLIONAIRE.

Enjoy these photos of the readers….and the snow day fun.  Keep those emails coming so I can grow the extra credit list.
