I LOVE MY SCHOOL - SNOW DAY ACTIVITY
Since some of you are not able to travel to school because of the winter weather, why not invite your students to be part of our "I Love My School" Essay and Video Contest?
Have your students in grades K-2 and 3-5 submit an essay on why they love their school. Have your 6-8 and 9-12 create 3 minute videos on why they love their school. Judge the entries at a district level, and send your district overall winners to PREPS using our LMS system by March 20th.
We will then host a state-wide contest, and send our pics to compete at the national level to the National Rural Education Association. Prizes will be awarded for state winners by PREPS and national winners by NREA.
