AR CHALLENGE
The heat is on ! While we started strong in 1st place nationally, our standing has slipped to 3rd. That means it's time to raise the stakes! This week Ms. Gromowski issues individual student challenges to all students in 1st-8th grade. Anyone meeting their assigned goal gets CHOCOLATE!!
 
Just in case chocolate isn't reason enough to keep those pages turning, next Tuesday all of K-8 will travel to Sprecher's here in Watertown for an extra reading event.  K-4 will go from 8:15-9:15 and Grades 5-8 will go from 9:15-10:15am. While there students will have quiet reading time at the tables while enjoying Sprecher's famous root beer floats! YUM!  
 
A big THANK YOU to Mr. Tom Knudson, executive chef and GSLS parent, and the entire Sprecher's restaurant for allowing us to invade as we work to reclaim 1st place.
