Read Across America

It's time once again for the annual Read Across America event which is set for March 2.

"You're never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read with a child."

Read Across America Poem

You're never too old, too wacky, too wild,

To pick up a book and read with a child.

You're never too busy, too cool, or too hot,

To pick up a book and share what you've got.

In schools and communities,

Let's gather around,

Let's pick up a book,

Let's pass it around.

There are kids all around you,

Kids who will need

Someone to hug,

Someone to read.

Come join us March 2

Your own special way

And make this America's

Read to Kids Day.

Spelling Bee

The band room was filled with family and friends who were there to support students who were participating in the School District Spelling Bee.

As each word was pronounced a hush would settle over the audience as they waited for each contestant to start spelling. Twenty students in grades fifth-eighth participated in the Blackduck School District Spelling Bee Feb. 1.

Through several rounds difficult words were spelled until a champion speller was left standing.

Jonah Gustafson was the third place speller and second place was taken by Charli Schocker. Blackduck's champion speller is Cathrynn Hedlin from the fifth grade. Hedlin qualified to participate in the regional spelling bee in Thief River Falls.
