The PTO of Kyle Elementary provided our students and staff with a hot dog lunch in our courtyard to celebrate our reading growth through out the year. Our principal Mr. Sopko, cooked all the hot dogs on his grill.

Fifth grade students from Myers Elementary took part in a living history museum which was open to other classes as well as the performers’ families to visit. The museum was the end product of a biographical book report all fifth-grade reading classes had completed which they then followed up by writing and delivering a speech. The students chosen to perform in the museum then developed their costumes to impersonate the subject of their report. Students did a terrific job!
