The Rio games may be over, but you still have time!

Did you have a chance to catch some of the Olympic action from Rio? I loved watching the athletes compete, and know how much hard work and time they put into their training to get to the top. I loved watching gymnast Simone Biles perform her floor exercises--she was nearly perfect!

How are your Summer Reading Olympics? Did you make the time to compete in a few events? You have two weeks left to add a few more to your list. How about Synchronized Swimming or Table Tennis? Talk to your parents about their favorite books as children and read one. Both events are fun.

And if you haven't tried Gymnastics yet, I hope you will give it a go---maybe you can have someone snap a photo of you while reading on one foot!

Enjoy these last few weeks, as our Summer Reading Olympics wind down.

Drake Olympic Readers

What a fun afternoon we had on Monday! Summer readers from the Drake building shared what they have been reading, heard a story from Mr. Wilson, crafted their own Olympic Torch and tried their hand at some book-inspired games. We met some new students (welcome Miles and Daniella!) and saw old friends.


Keep Reading!

Great reading in the forecast


What a hot weekend this is going to be. This is my thermometer right now, in the shade! It's just too hot for me to do anything fun outside, so I have found a cool spot in front of the fan with my book. I hope you are staying cool by doing some reading, too!
