We like learning here, we like reading there, Cardinals like books and learning everywhere!
The Cardinals had fun celebrating Dr. Seuss all week with reading lots of Seuss books, dressing for Wacky Wednesday, tweeting about our favorite Seuss book, and fun Seuss guessing games.  Thing One and Thing Two started the day on the morning news reading Seuss rhymes. Thank you Dr. Seuss for making reading so much fun!

SMK8 students in grades 2-8 who read two chapter books in the month of December and made 100% on the AR test earned a golden ticket to attend the "Polar Express" reading celebration. The kindergarten and first grade students who read two books and made 100% on the AR test also joined in on the fun. We would like to congratulate all our readers who met the challenge. It was a fun celebration of reading with hot chocolate, treats, pj's, and watching the Polar Express!

All 6th, 7th, and 8th graders enjoyed the author visit of Sharon Flake at CCHS on November 15th. They read many of her titles before her visit including her newest title "Pinned". She talked to the students about writing and how she got started as an author. Students also had the opportunity to purchase her books and have her sign them during the book signing time. It was a great literacy day for our school and district!
