I spent a day recently at Antelope's North Country School. The school has a warm, friendly atmosphere. Reading is a major part of every student’s day at North Country. The staff accomplishes this by integrating reading into most other subject areas. The mural above is an good example of integration.
Mr. Farrel, the school's Vice Principal, read in both assemblies. He was a powerful Emperor in the Adventures of the Treasure Fleet assembly and was the wise king of the jungle in the Gecko’s Complaint reading. Mrs. Tricomo was an amazingly funny Admiral in the Adventures of the Treasure Fleet assembly! The students who played musical instruments during the readings did a fine job as well.
North Country's students asked great questions. All in all, a very fine day!
