Ellinwood takes the bookmark challenge
Sheri Holmes

Former EGS teacher Sarah Cherry shared a contest her school conducts and we decided it would be fun to try. Our students were all in for the bookmark challenge! Each student created their own bookmark. A panel of judges narrowed it down to four per grade level. Then students were the deciding factor for their grade level.

The winning bookmarks were color printed for each student. It was great to see the work that was put into the bookmarks and the excitement for the winners!

Winning bookmarks: 2nd grade: Madilyn Frees: I Love Reading; 3rd grade: Liam Davis: Dragon; 4th grade: Allison Cook: Read; 5th grade: Hailey Grossardt: Palm Tree Sunset; 6th grade: Lakyn Schwartz: Seekers
