6th Grade Readers

6thgrade2  6thgrade1

A Friday tradition at Fort Calhoun Elementary is the first graders and sixth graders reading together. This gives the younger students a chance to develop a bond with the older students while working on learning to read and working on listening skills. It also allows the older students a chance to model proper behaviors and reading strategies.

Unity Day

Bully Free2 Bully free3

Fort Calhoun Elementary united together on Wednesday, October 9, and supported students being bullied everywhere. It showed them that they are not alone – that someone cares by wearing orange on October 9. Together we can lead the movement against bullying!
