Summer Reading
We encouraged our Theiss Tigers to read over the summer. Twenty-four students completed the "Summer Readers' Challenge."  We will celebrate them Friday, September 23rd with an ice cream party. 

We kicked off this year's Star Reader Program & revealed our "sweet" shirts.  Letters went home September 14th explaining the program to parents.  Students were so excited to start earning their points/books in order to down to the library & claim their shirts.

The fall Scholastic book fair will be set up & open for business October 18, 19, & 20th.  Our family night at the book fair will be Wednesday, October 19th from 3:30 to 6:30.
