Vaughan Elementary School News - June 1, 2009

We are all so very excited about wrapping things up for this school year. One of the projects that we have been especially excited about this year at our school is the new reading nook in our Media Center. With funds from a Warren Education Fund Grant, a wall mural, a rug, puppets, and four large stuffed animals in a “Wild About Books” theme were purchased for the media center. It is beautiful and really welcomes everyone into our Media Center. A second part to this grant was an art contest among the students in the school. Students were asked to choose a book that they were “wild” about and draw a book cover for it. Winning entries then redrew this picture on to canvas squares. These squares are being quilted into valances that will hang in our Media Center windows. Winners were: Yobani Marin - “Lightship”, Alex Vogel - “Dinosaur Babies”, Jasmine Huff - “Dog Breath”, Hailey Vogel - “The Puppy Who Wanted a Boy”, Schana Kearney - “The Missing Piece”, Zianne Richardson - “Christmas”, Angel Harvey - “Clifford and the Grouchy Neighbors”, Stavon Drew - “Babymouse Beach Babe”, Tiara Daniel - “Curious George Goes Fishing”, Nathaniel Taylor - “Ricky Ricotta's Might Robot”, Ta'Shaynna Seward - “Share a Book”, Caleb Conn - “Oh the Places You'll Go”, Breanna Sikes - “Morris's Disappearing Bag”, Makayla Richardson - “The Giving Tree”, Briana Jefferson - “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”, Antonio Richardson - “Go Dog, Go”, Ben Rodwell - “Super Fly Guy”, Elizabeth Neitch – “Harry Potter”, Jesse Lambert - “The Chronicles of Narnia – The Last Battle”, David Evans - “Henry and Mudge Under the Yellow Moon”, and Mary Francis - “Captain Underpants”. Congratulations students, on a job well done. We hope the valances will be completed before the last day of school, but if not, please come by at the beginning of next school year and take a look!
