Tiger Tally - Week 1 - Paws Up!

Wow!  75 students have turned in $100+ as of Fri 9/15 morning and earned a popsicle to kick off the weekend!

Mrs. Dodge's class is leading the Root Beer Float Contest, but Mrs. Woehrle's class is right behind.  The other classes have an opportunity to catch up -- and even surpass -- the 6th grade classes while they are on their incredible adventure at Catalina Island Marine Institute!

Keep your eye on the prize... which is the AMAZING experience at CIMI (6th) next week, Camp Ocean Pines (4th) in Nov and Yosemite (5th) in Jan.  It is such a rare and truly special opportunity for our students!   Of course, there are also these great contests and prizes!
