DERBY WINNER. Clearview sixth-grader Christopher Benson built one final Pine Box Derby car, even though he is now too old to compete himself. He crafted this "Crayola(r) Special" in honor of art teacher Kathy Gerdts-Senger, and the Crayola company, which provides art supplies to primary schools. "I knew she'd like it," he said, when asked how he got the idea to build it.
MANY VOICES. Clearview Elementary Teacher Jessica Rodebergread aloud to the students in Mrs. Krebs class last Friday morning. She and other volunteers read the first chapter from The World According to Humphrey, a look at schoolroom life from the perspective of the class hamster, to celebrate the start of "I Love to Read Month" in all Clearview classrooms.
