Don't forget you can shop our book fair each morning this week from 7:30-8:00. You can also let your child's teacher know how much you appreciate her by purchasing a book from her classroom library wish list. These are located in the library.
It's time to stock up on some great books for important summer reading! Parents and grandparents are welcome to come in and shop each morning next week (April 10-14) from 7:30-8:00. Students will be shopping during assigned times each day. We will have parent volunteers here to help students shop.
Kindergarten pre-registration is now open! If you have a child who will be enrolling in Kindergarten next year, please visit ccboe.org/K for more information.
Our students enjoyed another fun day of Read Across America. Our special readers in the library today were Ms. Pruett, Mrs. Guthrie, and Ms. Tew. Our wonderful reading coach, Mrs. Pearson, shared Green Eggs and Ham with all the students in the gym. We are so grateful for everyone who took time out of their busy schedules to read to our students this week.
Following today's National Weather Service briefing, Dr. Barnette has decided to have a remote learning day on Friday, March 3, 2023. Cullman County will be under a rare high wind warning beginning tomorrow. We are expecting sustained winds 30-40 MPH with gusts 50-60 MPH, well above safe operating conditions for school buses. The NWS says to expect - and be prepared - for downed trees and power outages. Students will be provided assignments to complete tomorrow.
We had another great day in the library with special visits from some wonderful people who took time from their already full schedules. Today, we had the privilege of having Mayor Bartlett, State Representative Corey Harbison, Mrs. Presto, and Mrs. Cupp read to our students.
Day 2 of Read Across America in our library was another great day with wonderful readers. Today, we were so honored to have Sheriff Gentry, Mr. Orr, Mrs. Jenkins, Mrs. Brock, and our very own Mrs. Garner read to students during their assigned library time. We are extremely grateful for these who are giving of their busy schedules to share with our students.
We had some very special readers in our library today for the first day of Read Across America. Thank you to Mrs. Mattox, Mrs. Burgess, Officer Bates, Mrs. Sims, and Officer Duke for taking time out of your day to come read to our students.
We will celebrate Read Across America next week with some fun dress up days!
Due to the risk of severe weather, Cullman County Schools will be remote again tomorrow. (Thursday 2/16/23). There is a strong possibility for tornadoes and I believe that parents should be able to make the decision to carry their children to a storm shelter as needed. If storms are not in our area students should use this time to catch up on any school work or spend time practicing their reading. Thank you and please stay safe. - Shane Barnette
