To end the year, students in Mrs. Cristi Aulbach at BIS celebrated with Camp Read-a-Lot. Students walked into the room to find the classroom transformed into a camping retreat. Desks were transformed into tents and into camps. We read in the dark with finger flashlights, did group activities that were camping themed in both reading and math , and enjoyed s'mores. Students told Mrs. Aulbach that this was the best day ever!

First graders from Northside Elementary took advantage of the sunny day to enjoy some quality play time at Sigma Phi Gamma Park. First grader Blake Roysden took a break under one of the shade trees. Looks like fun, Cubs!

Kindness Rocks! The final Kindness Club project this year had all the Northside Cubs involved. Students painted over 240 unique rock designs. These rocks will be placed around the county in hopes that if you come across one, it will bring a smile to your day. If you find one feel free to keep it, leave it, or place it somewhere new. Our Cubs rock!!!

A message from Mrs. Kylee Redford regarding Camp Invention: Just like this very full bulletin board (thanks Mrs. Lightle for the help), all of the Camp Invention scholarship spots are filled. We have record numbers and unfortunately funding for scholarships has run out. Families can now choose to pay full price or get put on a scholarship wait list in case more funding can be secured. Thank you to all the families for showing such interest. We look forward to a great week at camp June 7-11!!!

Every year, Mrs. Jeannie Cain, the library specialist at Northside Elementary, conducts a fundraiser for the Blackford County Animal Shelter. This year's fundraiser was just a little different, and as usual, Mrs. Cain made it special! Thanks to the generosity of a number of local individuals who donated stuffed animals to Northside, Mrs. Cain was able to create a pet adoption center in the library! Not only were students able to adopt a stuffed animal pet for $2, they also were asked to read to their adopted pet. Through the pet adoptions and sales of discovery bottles, Northside students raised $1,072 for the animal shelter. Students who read five stories to their adopted pet received a surprise. They were invited down to the lobby as Principal Craig Campbell and his dog, Maggie, read a special story. Thanks to Mrs. Cain and all our Cub readers who participated in the fundraiser. We sure appreciate you! #BlackfordCountyAnimalShelter #CubsRule
