You Can Judge a Book by its Cover
Class books have arrived!!
Each year, the elementary K-4 classes publish class books. Mrs. Minzenmayer organizes the event, but she said credit must be given to the teachers, as they have to make sure the book for their class is complete! Although an arduous process, the end result is fantastic.
Pictured, from right to left, are Phoenix Walker (2nd), Mrs. Minzenmayer, Charlsie Schwartz (4th) and Ben Sassenhagen (4th).
