Scholastic Book Fair Coming Soon!

Coming to the Media Center on October 14-18

Monday-Thursday  7:10 AM – 4:00 PM

Friday 7:10 AM – Noon

Let’s pretend it is freezing out there because our theme this year is Arctic.  Snuggle up with a good book that you purchase from the Book Fair.  Don’t miss out on a chance to spin the wheel to win a prize.

Hungry Caterpillar Races

Kindergarten and 1st Grade students listened to The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  Then they decorated caterpillars and competed in a race using straws to blow their caterpillars down the table.  Kindergartners counted up pictures of food from the story and 1st graders added and subtracted them.



Read From Your Heart

Check out our display which reinforces Clarkdale’s motto for the year: Clarkdale Has Heart.

We display books inspiring HOPE, celebrating ENTHUSIASM, encouraging AMBITION, championing RESPECT, and highlighting TALENT.

Students are encouraged to complete a book review to nominate a book they have read which they think has H.E.A.R.T.  They have the opportunity to have their recommended book displayed.  They may also have the book review published on this blog or presented on the news. This will reinforce writing and speaking skills.


Welcome to our New Blog

Mrs. Hill and Mrs. Whitaker look forward to serving our students and staff as we integrate technology into lessons, encourage literacy, and engage in fun reading challenges and events.  It promises to be a great year of teaching and learning!
