Reggie the Readerpillar!

Reggie has left us for the year after you all checked out 12,800 books to help him grow big and strong! He left us this letter: 

Dear Coral Ridge Cubs,

Wow! It’s the end of the year already! Thank you all so much for helping me grow big and strong by checking out 12,800 books this year! Way to go!!

It’s time for me to say goodbye and take a well-deserved vacation. Here’s a picture of me taking off to see the world! I’m going to be gone for a while, so next school year my sister Regina the Readerpillar will be visiting you all. Please help her grow by reading lots of books, just like you did with me.

Your friend, Reggie the Readerpillar

Our Collaborative Sticker Poster

Our Cubs have finished our collaborative sticker poster and were thrilled to find out it is a Rainbow Unicorn! Students are currently signing the back and it will hang next to last year's poster in the library. What will next year's poster be??

Congratulations to Our Literary Tree Contest Winners!

All the trees were so wonderful! I can't wait to do this again next year and see even more great examples of our Cubs' creativity and love of books!
