March BOOK Madness

4th graders participated in March BOOK Madness. This year the books were Past Champions vs. Newbies. Our winner was a past champion called Rescue and Jessica: A Life Changing Friendship. It was about a young lady that had both of her legs amputated and how a service dog supported her. See if you agree with us, is this the best book?

The Life and Drive of Mari Sandoz

Peg Gilbert presented “The Life and Drive of Mari Sandoz” to 4th and 5th graders. They had read “Mari Sandoz A Wild Flower” by Evelyn B Hisel earlier this year. Peg dressed as Mari and talked of the hardships and challenges of the Sandhills, as well as, Mari’s accomplishments as an author. Peg’s presentation was brought to us by Humanities Nebraska. Humanities Nebraska provides major funding for programs. Humanities Nebraska receives support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Nebraska State Legislature, the Nebraska Cultural Endowment and private donations.
