Teacher's Corner (By Mr. Singer):
Mush doggies, Mush! We have been very focused on the Iditarod this week. We have had focused readings on the race daily, watched reports from the race, and have been busy reading with the mushers as we are halfway through the Idita-read. We were also honored with a visit from Mrs. Markle, middle school principal, to start getting the ball moving on the transition from elementary to middle school. Finally, today marks the end of ⅔ of the year. On Monday we being the third trimester.
