“What’s the ‘word’ in English 10?” Anahi Ramirez created this movie poster after reading Harper Lee’s classic To Kill a Mockingbird. She chose to highlight the quote: “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view.” She said this quote means that people can be too quick to judge. People should take the time to get to know someone. Her favorite thing about the book was when Boo Radley saved the children from Bob Ewell. He showed he cared for the children even though they didn’t really know each other. #tokillamockingbird #english10 #everystudenteveryday #creativeproject
Attention 4K-1 Families: Please check your child's backpack for a full length note with information regarding the field trip tomorrow (4/28). Here are some highlights: The zoo staff is asking that masks are worn while we are at the zoo. We just realized that the address we originally gave you will take you to the back entrance of the zoo. If you are using a GPS, it might be helpful if you just type in Zoo Lane, Baraboo, WI. Otherwise, you are more than welcome to follow the buses. The buses will be parked in the back of the school right in front of the doors. If you are following, please allow space for the buses to park. We are leaving at approximately 8:45. Thank you, 4K-1 Teachers
