When the 2014-2015 school year started Mrs. Wilke presented the students with a challenge. She challenged them to read 1,000,000 steps of reading practice for 100 Book Challenge. Mrs. Wilke told the students if they met the principal’s challenge she would do anything they wanted her to do. The students voted on several options such as sing karaoke, dress like a clown, and complete the Ice Bucket Challenge. In an almost unanimous decision, the students voted on the Ice Bucket Challenge to be their reward.
With the challenge accepted, and an exciting reward in place, the students got right to work. They read, and read, eventually earning 1,889, 715 steps collectively as a K-8 student body! Mrs. Wilke couldn’t have been prouder. She gladly accepted her fate to be soaked by ice and water in order to reward the students for their hard work and perseverance to not only meet their reading goals, but to surpass them.
As she made her closing remarks at the end of the Ice bucket Challenge, Mrs. Wilke challenged the students to read 2,500,000 steps in the 2015-2016 school year. We can’t wait to see how she rewards the students for reaching (and surely surpassing) that reading goal!!
On Thursday, May 28, Mrs Bruchal’s Drama class presented two showings of The Wizard of Oz. The audiences were wowed by a cast of characters who sang and danced, winged monkeys that captured Dorothy and her crew, and Munchkin “extras” who haven’t even made it to middle school.
