Check Out Mrs. Waddell Getting PIED!!!!

Dear Whitmore,

Check out Mrs. Waddell getting PIED!!  For March is Reading Month, the students were challenged to read as many minutes as they could and log it.  The students with the highest number of reading minutes per grade level were able to PIE Mrs. Waddell.  Great job for those who read the most minutes and were able to PIE Mrs. Waddell. Looks like everyone had fun!
