Please join us for the Spring Fling at the Circuit on 14th St. across from the State Police post.
Today, two members of our class joined upper el. students at the Wild Beach to meet with Holly Baker of 7&4 news. In celebration of Earth Day, the students are trying to raise Wild Beach awareness and find out what the residents of Traverse City actually know about the Slabtown Beach. To that end, they’ve created a survey:
You may not be familiar with the Wild Beach in Slabtown. The Slabtown Beach is the only stretch of public wild beach left in town. Some residents want to get it groomed. Others want it to stay wild. Groomed beaches are good for tourists, swimmers and boaters. Wild beaches are good for wildlife and educational trips. The plants at the Wild Beach help keep the water clean.
We would like to know what you think about the Wild Beach!
Please go take a survey made by Camille Czarny and Ellen Selby from Mrs. Hancock’s class:

Our class has decided to participate in Read to Feed®‚ a reading incentive program designed by Heifer International, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending world hunger and poverty while caring for the Earth.
Read to Feed allows children to help find solutions to global problems like hunger and poverty. Children are asked to find sponsors for each book they read (or 100 pages of a chapter book) during the reading window (Until December 14th). The goal is to promote reading and to help Heifer provide livestock for struggling families who have few resources and need an ongoing source of income. These gifts help families move out of poverty to self-reliance.
Sponsors set a pledge amount for each book read—a quarter or a dollar, or any desired amount. At the end of the program, children collect their pledges, pool their money and then decide what type of livestock they would like to buy for families in need.* Our class has set a goal of $380. That would purchase a water buffalo, three rabbits, a beehive, a flock of chicks and a flock of ducks & geese for five different families.
Read to Feed is an exciting adventure for children. Along the way, they learn many important lessons. They learn about different cultures around the world and learn the importance of using the Earth’s resources wisely. They learn the value of self-reliance. Maybe most important, they learn that they can make a difference in the world.
We appreciate your encouragement and support of your child while he or she participates in Read to Feed. It will not require much time on your part, but will mean less fortunate children around the world will have an ongoing source of food, perhaps an opportunity to go to school—and hope for a better tomorrow.
Your child can join our class team online where donations can be made by credit card, or you may send your pledges of cash or check to school. Checks should be made to “Heifer International:Read to Feed”. If your child would like to register online, you can do so by clicking this link.

Once upon a time there was an evil dragon. He terrorized the villages and slaughtered any knight who faced him. The prince saw this mayhem and wanted to interfere, but the king would not let him.He said that the dragon was so mighty that even he dare not face him. But the prince still wanted to. So, he snuck out while the king was still sleeping and put on the king’s armor and led a few knights out of the castle and to the dragon’s cave. He went into the cave and drew his sword and stabbed it. Soon the whole land heard of his victory. When he got back to the castle his father was very proud of him. He said “I thought that you couldn’t slay it but I was wrong”. They all lived happily ever after.
