Summer Reading Contest!

Thank you Mr. Babcock for sharing this with the Loquacious ….

From the New York Times:

Every Friday from June 17 to Aug. 19 we’ll pose the same question: What interested you most in The Times this week? Why?

Anyone 13 to 19 years old from anywhere in the world can post an answer any week until Friday, Aug. 26, and contestants can choose from any Times article, essay, video, interactive or photograph published in 2016, on any topic they like.

Every Tuesday starting July 5 we will announce winners from a previous week and publish their writing on the blog.

National Library Week

We had a great time hosting contests and giving away prizes for National Library Week. The video below shows highlights of the events that took place in the library.


Students, teachers, and administrators visited the library to play cornhole as part of our National Library Week celebration. Anyone who played received a bag of popcorn. People who got at least one bag into the hole got to pick a small prize. Names of people who scored are being put into a drawing for a bigger prize. Stay tuned for an announcement of our winners!

A handful of photos can be seen below but many more can be viewed on our Facebook page.

Minute to Win It

On Wednesday, April 13th, we played Minute to Win It. Students had to move one marshmallow at a time from a large bowl to a Chinese take out box. Mrs. Brito’s students used a spoon while students who came during lunch used chopsticks. The student who had the most marshmallows in the take out box at the end of each lunch won a prize. The student who had the most overall won a Bag of Swag.
