March is designated as the National Reading Month in our schools and we will again give special emphasis to activities that promote reading as a fun and enjoyable experience! Please join us for our annual Literacy Night on Thursday, March 2 from 6:00-7:30 pm. We’ll have many literacy-based games/activities and author, Leslie Helakoski, will be here to sign books –don’t miss out on the fun!
We love to celebrate reading all year at Lee Elementary but make it a special event in the month of March. Please click here to see our Calendar of Events.
A favorite day at McFall is 100 Day celebrating the 100th day of school!
Students celebrated in grand style with a special visit from Zero the Hero! He led the students and staff in counting to 100 while doing some morning moves. One hundred glittery stickers, colorful cotton balls, straws, and gumballs decorated posters created by students to show 100 items. Students also used jewels, hearts, stickers and straws to decorate crowns to wear for the day and many teachers planned special classroom events.
Thornapple Kellogg School officials are looking forward to welcoming all preschool, young 5's and kindergarten students to register for the 2017-18 school year.

Making “whooshing” sounds, kindergarten student Will Briggs sailed his shark-faced pirate ship across desks and chairs around the classroom.
Classmates Zaydee Brautigam and Isabelle Tolan were deep into a game of “Candyland” in a corner of the room and Logan Jamison used a steady head in a game of “Topple.” Several students gathered around a game trying to “Pop the Pig.”
