The Eggs-traordinary Reading Event

Our Eggs-traordinary Reading Event has begun!  The class that reads the most time between February 1st and the day the chicks hatch in April will have the honor of naming one of our baby chicks.  Don’t forget to keep track of the time your child reads at home and on the  weekends.  Time spent reading alone or together can be counted.  Time can be logged on our Google form at home or at school.  The address is tinyurl.com/ridgechicks or just click on the link above.  Thank you to the Henrico Education Foundation and our PTA for helping to make this program happen!

Smile! You are on a time-lapse camera!

Thanks to our Henrico Education Foundation Grant, the library was able to purchased a time-lapse camera.  Fifth grade students in Mrs. Biller’s class are conduction scientific experiments with lettuce seeds and our grow station (also bought with HEF grant funds).  We are using the camera to record the seeds progress.  We hope to be able to use the video to show our 1st graders this spring when they study the plant cycle.
