LEAD APRIL STUDENT CHALLENGE

LEAD would like to remind families about the April Student Challenge that was sent home via email last weekend.  Students in K-5 are invited to publish a favorite poem that could be displayed and shared with the school.  They may also memorize and recite the poem for Mrs. Bekkum and Mrs. Boman.  Students in 5-8 are invited to choose a poem to memorize and "perform" at a Poetry Slam to be held in early May.  Both of these are great ways to take a challenge and celebrate National Poetry Month!  The information can be found on Renweb as a resource document.
