A Look Back at Title 1 2019-2020

Our theme for the year was "Reading Olympics". The Title 1 students set reading goals and worked hard to accomplish them. Our Parent Advisory Committee met to help with planning the theme and the awards. Due to the Coronavirus outbreak we were unable to have our usual celebration, so we presented our winners and acknowledgements in a virtual celebration. Our top reader awards were custom made by the Benton Foundry! This is a look back at our activities this year. Enjoy!
