Riverside District 96 - Ames School added 28 new photos.

We want everyone at Ames to get excited to become an author this year, and our students can do this by participating in our Young Author program. Every student will get the opportunity to write a story of their choice through this program.

To kick the Young Author program off, we had a special visitor at Ames today. With a big thank you to Mrs. Prodanich and the Magic Tree Bookstore for making this happen, our students had a visit with the author and illustrator of the “Stick Dog” and “Stick Cat” series.....Mr. Tom Watson! Our students even had the opportunity to draw all the stick dogs from the series along with the author.....ask your children to show you their illustrations!

Thank you to the Riverside Fire Department for visiting Ames School today and teaching our students about fire safety.

Our students were very interested in learning about what to do in case of a fire, as well as exploring all of the equipment our firemen use when fighting fires and keeping us safe.

Chicago Dance Crash performed for District 96. Students learned about the evolution of hip hop dance, learned a few dance movements, and even performed a “Soul Train!"

It was so much fun! The kids LOVED it!!! 😊
