The One & Only Ivan
We are excited about this year's One District, One Book program. Every family with a child in one of our elementary schools received a copy of this year's selection: The One & Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate. Yesterday's question: What does Ivan watch on the TV at the zoo?
Today read pages 276-300 and answer this question. What does Ivan do the large wall in his cage at the zoo?
Thank you to all our celebrity readers: Mayor Rebecca Casper, Jay & Karole from LocalNews8, Todd and Steve from KIDK, Nate from East Idaho News and the DJs from Z103, KLCE and The Hawk. We also appreciate everyone who makes this program possible including the generous donations from the Idaho Falls Rotary Club, Idaho National Laboratory and our parents and patrons, as well as support from the Post Register and Riverbend Communications.

All our schools and district offices will be closed on Monday, Feb. 15, for the President's Day holiday.
