For the past few weeks, students have waited eagerly for fertilized chicken eggs, which were kept in an artificial incubator, to hatch. Recently 19 chicks made their appearance.

Read Across America

Students at West Point Elementary School recently celebrated Read Across America Day and Dr. Seuss' birthday with a special visitor. In the morning, Mama Jama surprised students in kindergarten, first and second grades with a special singing and storytelling performance. In the afternoon, the festivities continued with a school-wide Bingo for Books game. Principal Jan Franks called the game live from the broadcast room so students could watch and play from their classrooms. 


Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

We are looking forward to a "Seuss-tastic" Read Across America Week! Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!


Real Men Read

Students in Mrs. Moosman's kindergarten class were recently treated to a special guest reader. Steve Trammell, the Mayor of West Point, and three City of West Point firemen joined more than twenty community volunteers for the school's second annual Real Men Read event, an initiative to help instill a love a reading in students. Each volunteer was assigned to a classroom where they read a story and shared with the children their own personal reading history. The men also told the students how reading impacts them now and how they utilize reading in their careers. A special thank you goes out to all the West Point men who supported this event!

NED's Kindness Adventure

Recently students at West Point Elementary School were treated to an assembly from NED's Kindness Adventure. This delightful performance inspires students to be kind-hearted and caring through storytelling, music and even an interactive video of NED's trip to Kenya. Afterwards, students had the opportunity to purchase a variety of hand-crafted items from artisans in Kenya. A portion from each item sold provides over 100 gallons of clean water for kids in Kenya. Pictured is Jaquan holding some of the hand-crafted items.

Gold Medal Readers

We are reading for the win! The Gold Medal Readers promotion recently kicked off with a torch relay, complete with music and cheering crowds. During the two weeks of the winter games, students can participate in the Gold Medal Readers promotion and earn medals for reading books on their Lexile level. One book earns a bronze medal, two earn a silver medal, and three earn a gold medal and a bag of potato chips. Once a student earns their first medal, their picture is placed on the "Wall of Winners!" At the end of the two weeks, the class with the highest percentage of medals will win their choice of an ice cream or pizza party. There will be one class winner in grades K-2 and one class winner in grades 3-5.
