reading and writing


Earlier this week, Mr. Aeling’s class presented their book reports to the students in Mrs. Mills, Mrs. Wohlwend, and Mr. Emter’s classes. This was a great way for students to share their love of reading with others while promoting the books we have available for check out in our library.

A couple weeks ago some of the sixth grade students had the opportunity to go to the Young Author’s Conference held at the Central Lake College in Staples. This conference gave student writers an opportunity to learn from and interact with Minnesota-based authors and illustrators. These students gained insight into what shapes their writing and how to embrace individuality within their own work.

We have also had some special readers stop by classrooms and the library. Superintendent Sparks stopped by and read a Christmas story to the third grade class. The Henning Festival Queen and the Henning Festival Princesses stopped by the library to read some of their favorite stories. And former teacher, Nancy Brutlag, and her dog Annie stopped by to read to students in the library as well. Fun fact about Annie, she can help turn the pages of books.

Thank you to all our special visitors and to our staff for providing our students with fun and engaging learning experiences. And remember,

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” –Dr. Seuss-
