As a school goal, this year we are challenging our students to earn 20,000 Accelerated Reader points. If we reach our goal, volunteer faculty will participate in a Color Run. While ours will be more of a 25 yard dash instead of a 5K, we think the kids will love it. Students have enjoyed our end of the year Accelerated Reader events through the years that I am sure they will have no problem reaching our goal this year. I’m looking for faculty volunteers so please let me know if you are willing to participate. The Color Run

1To encourage reading, students earning their Accelerated Reader point goal each nine weeks are invited to Game Day in the library.  Students can play games on the original PlayStation we have as well as participate in our themed activities. This nine weeks I decided on a hands-on activity in which students worked together as a team to build a marshmallow catapult. Each group was required to use all the materials provided to build a device capable of shooting a miniature marshmallow 12 feet! In addition, I added baby rattle and a cup stacker game to the events. In baby rattle, students were required to move gum balls from one soda bottle to another in the fastest time possible. The students were awesome! They were able to shoot a marshmallow over 15 feet, complete the baby rattle activity in 12 seconds, and stack the cups in 23 seconds.

1Volunteer faculty members participated in an event this week to celebrate reaching our Accelerated Reader school goal of 35,000 points. Top readers were able to compete against their teachers in a good old fashioned water fight. Huge thanks to all participants in the event as well as WJMS students for reaching their point goal.

As a school goal, this year we are challenging our students to earn 35,000 Accelerated Reader points. If we reach our goal, volunteer faculty will participate in a good old fashioned water fight….complete with water guns and balloons. Students enjoyed our Gelli Baff event so much last year that I am sure they will have no problem reaching our goal. Last year we reached our goal by Christmas so I did raise it a bit. Currently we have the faculty volunteers listed below but we will be adding a few more.

Faculty volunteers for “Water Fight 2013”:

Mike Yawn Jennifer Prosser Brian Hall
Beth Lamb Autumn Horton Maria Oliver
