After 21 days of incubating our chicken eggs, our chicks are hatching this week in first grade! As you can imagine there is much wonder and excitement. First graders also crushed their 21 days of reading challenge! The first week of our challenge we read 168 books as a class, the second week we read 358, and the final week we read 369 books collectively! Chickfabulous work, first grade! A big shout out to Mr. Zack Parker for supplying us with everything needed for a successful hatch, including the fertilized eggs. Thank you, Mr. Parker!

Selkirk music teacher, Randi Lithgow, has produced another wonderful program with our 6-12 students. In 1983, President Ronald Regan declared the third Monday in January as Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a way to remind us to honor our common humanity and those timeless of values of service, dignity, compassion, and courage. This program in honor of Dr. King and those goals would typically be performed in the gymnasium for all 6-12 students, however, this year required a little creativity. Great job, Mrs. Lithgow and Selkirk students! We hope you take time to click on the link to watch our 14-minute video: https://youtu.be/wwI77E60oWI
