  • Sweet Treat

    As a reward for collecting more than 5,000 items for the annual food drive, Cartmell Elementary Principal Jonica Ray became a human ice cream sundae for her students Dec. 11. Sitting in a plastic pool with goggles strapped on but no hair net, Ray allowed her students to cover her in ice cream and a variety of toppings.


    “It was worth it to hear their screams and cheers and laughter. The whole time I kept thinking about how many families we fed [with the donations].” - Jonica Ray

  • Use read-aloud time as a fun, family event

    After tomorrow, students will have 16 full days to not be students. Winter break is here, which means lots of snow (maybe?) and no school (definitely). With more than two weeks of blanks on the calendar, students and parents at some point are sure to be on the lookout for something to do. After all, there are only so many snowballs to throw and hills to sled down in a day. Once everyone’s gloves are soaked and the television has been on for an hour too long, a read-aloud can be a relaxing activity for the whole family to enjoy together.
