March is Reading Month Kicked Off Today!

Our theme this year is “Duck Duck Dewey” – with a focus on reading books from the different Dewey Decimal categories. The school has been divided into 7 teams which will be competing in a Dewey Duck Derby to win baskets full of non fiction titles for their classroom libraries. Be sure to keep track of non fiction reading at home! Students can also fill out Duck Duck Dewey bingo cards to be placed into a drawing for individual fun prizes.  Be sure to check out our Dewey Duck Pond in the main hallway throughout the month to see what new facts we are learning as we read. Watch for more information to come home with your student, email Mrs. Doctor (, or check the media center website, if you have any questions. Attached you can find copies of some of the papers students were given, just in case ;-).

Knapp Forest Second Graders spread some holiday warmth

Each student in Mrs. Morgan and Mrs. Ewing’s  classes contributed fleece for a service project.  They spent their Valentine party tying colorful fleece blankets with  parents and other family members. Reps from Bethany Children’s Services attended the party and accepted the blankets. They were then distributed to children who stay at Bethany or other foster homes throughout the local area.

KF Kindergarteners Stopping in the Woods on a Snowy Day



Click here to see what happened when Mrs. DeVries and friends were inspired by Robert Frost to take a walk in the woods.


Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening by RObert Frost

Whose woods these are I think I know.   
His house is in the village though;   
He will not see me stopping here   
To watch his woods fill up with snow.   
My little horse must think it queer   
To stop without a farmhouse near   
Between the woods and frozen lake   
The darkest evening of the year.   
He gives his harness bells a shake   
To ask if there is some mistake.   
The only other sound’s the sweep   
Of easy wind and downy flake.   
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,   
But I have promises to keep,   
And miles to go before I sleep,   
And miles to go before I sleep.
