Today was a special day in the media center. We offered the students not only the opportunity to reap the creative benefits of their brain, but also the financial. The Florida Department of Education is holding a competition to get kids thinking about the super benefits of eating a healthy breakfast. It’s a poster design competition where students, grades K-12, are encouraged to create a superhero demonstrating what it is that makes breakfast the most important meal of the day. K-3rd grade winners receive a $50 Toys R’ Us giftcard. 4th and 5th grade winners can get a $75 Best Buy giftcard. Whoa!
We had to work double-time today, as the Science resource was canceled. But rather than letting the kids down and robbing them of their resource experience today, we on the media team mustered our own super-heroic abilities and took on a double load of students. It was intense at times, but overall they did a great job and came up with some pretty impressive entries.
