Congratulations to Mrs. Burton’s 2nd-grade student for moving to the second round of the Elementary School Culinary Competition! On March 20th he will participate in a live competition at Everett High School for 5-8:00.
Good luck “G”! We can’t wait to hear about how you did!
This morning we celebrated our 3rd annual Lansing Leaders in Literacy Day event! Our Willow students thrived on the one-on-one time with their volunteer (approximately 200 people!) as they shared the book, “We’re all Wonders”. Every student will be bringing a hardcover book home to share with their family.
We are so grateful for all of our wonderful volunteers who took the time out of their day to make a lasting impression on our students and to foster the love of literacy.
The Lansing Leaders and Literacy Day is almost here! This year the featured book is “We're All Wonders” by R. J. Palacio, and the message for our students is to choose kindness.
