Nichols' One School, One Book this year is, "Granny Torrelli Makes Soup," by Sharon Creech. Rosie and her best friend, Bailey, are not getting along. Rosie's Granny Torrelli, tries to help the two overcome their differences. OSOB programs promote the benefits and importance of families reading together at home. Students are encouraged to log onto the school's Read-A-Thon site and create their own online reading page.
Nichols held its second Invention Convention, March 2. Students in Fourth Grade displayed their creations with posters, examples, models, and prototypes. They researched many everyday problems to come up with solutions to solve these problems. The gymnasium was turned into a "think-tank" of ideas where inventors proudly displayed and explained their inventions.
Nichols is recycling! An interactive bulletin board in the hallway will help students track how many water bottles are being kept out of the landfills and how much money is being collected due to their efforts. Students and staff will be recycling not only water bottles and paper, but dried out permanent and nonpermanent markers, too. Thank you, Mrs. Castro for spearheading this program!
