Mrs. Mazza's Enrichment and Intervention students focused on building their interest in reading first semester! They set a goal and read more than 50 books as a group! The photo shows the books that were read. Students in the group would use the display of book covers as inspiration and some read the same books that were interesting to other members of the group. Displaying book covers introduces students to genres they may not otherwise be exposed to. Keep up the great work, middle school readers!
Our juniors and seniors travelled to Urbana High School this morning to participate in an event called ThinkFast Interactive. The Champaign County Engineers Office sponsored the event.

All students were able to participate and answer questions related to music, movies and pop culture while learning about driver safety. Owen Deere represented his team in the finals. Thanks to Urbana High School for hosting the event!

Did you know we have a competitive Quick Recall team? We do! The team is led by Taran Clapp, MS Social Studies teacher. Quick recall is a timed, team game with four students competing against another team of four students by responding to short-answer questions in social studies, mathematics, language arts, science, and fine arts/humanities. It promotes the learning of facts and is an extra-curricular activity based in academic competition! They are having a fun season with competitions on Friday afternoons. Keep up the great work, Tigers!

The West Liberty Lions' Club stuffed blessing bags for West Liberty-Salem students this month.

Thank you, Lions Club! Your service and commitment in our community is as much of a blessing as the bags your helped make possible!
