The rough draft of the 22-23 yearbook is complete! Yearbook students have been practicing how to provide constructive criticism. Now they practice on themselves and their classmates. Each student is given 5 post-its that they have to turn in at the end of class with changes that can be made to improve the yearbook before it goes to publishing. The yearbook class will do this at least 2 more times as they are editing and rearranging photos, headings, and copy.

A *giant* thank you to Paw Paw District Library and Ms. Kayla for providing the materials and guiding Aspire Academy students through creating gingerbread houses on Friday, December 16. Students were able to spend some time this afternoon creating and decorating the houses as a reward for having all their work in and passing all their classes. Mrs. Congdon and Mrs. Chandler are looking forward to partnering with Ms. Kayla in the future to update the library at Aspire and bringing more materials to our students for Free Reading on Fridays.
