Children's Day - April 30
On Monday, April 30 our Tioga students celebrated Children's Day. Tioga families, friends and community members were invited to experience the magic happening in our classrooms! Below are a few photos from the event.
World Read Aloud Day - February 1
On Thursday, February 1, Tioga students celebrated World Read Aloud Day. On this day, readers of all ages celebrated literacy and the “pure joy and power of reading aloud.”
Tioga and BSD2 staff members volunteered to read aloud in the classrooms. Our guest readers, including our Tioga principals, shared their love of literacy by reading their favorite books!
One of Mr. Azcoitia’s favorite books was Dubi Dubi Muu by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin which he read to Mrs. Hobbs’ Bilingual Kindergarten class. In this book, Duck and his friends were at it again. But this time they're pooling their considerable resources to win a local talent show, because the first prize was a trampoline. The cows and sheep wanted to sing. And, the pigs wanted to dance. And Duck just wanted to win the trampoline, but he would have to handle Farmer Brown first!
All of our Tioga students interactively joined in the fun and learned some amazing facts along the way!
Kindergarten Fire Department Visit
The Bensenville Fire Department visited our Kindergarten classes. The students had the opportunity to sit in the fire truck and to see up close all of the hoses, ladders and tools that the firefighters use on a daily basis.
