Northwest High School instructor, Mrs. Jenifer Arnett, decided that efforts to improve pride and spirit at the high school were in vein and to really make change, it had to start at the elementary. Her "partners in crime" are Ashley Davis (NHS Math Instructor) and Rachel McCall (PTO president). The ES principals and ES staff have been willing to participate and help, Todd Jenkins, Mr. Scarberry and Mr. Burton have been extremely supportive and involved, and of course Mr. Tipton, the coaches, band directors, teachers, etc.! We have way too many things to be proud of not to be yelling from the rooftops! Some of the things that have happened and/or are happening:
The whole school is excited about our upcoming Book Fair. An amazing selection of books is headed our way! At the Book Fair you will find the latest and finest titles for kids, as well as books of interest to parents. Mark your calendar for our Family Event (Oct. 23) where the whole family can join in the fun. And, you can contribute books to your child's classroom library. The Book Fair is a great way to get everyone excited about reading.
Here's a brief video that highlights the big dreams that can be realized through family reading: http://www.scholastic.com/bookfairs/family
