Camp Read-A-Lot has been underway in Mrs. Cristi Aulbach's 2nd grade class at Northside. According to Mrs. Aulbach, students have enjoyed their classroom transformed into a camping wonderland! They have been reading with finger flashlights under their "tents" as they complete their camp-related reading and math activities. Why, there's even s'more snack mix to add to the adventure! What an excellent way to end an amazing 2nd grade year! Way to go, Cubs!
