BARAGA BOOK FAIR—Students and parents will find a treasure trove of books for sale at the Baraga library through March 9. Librarian Denise Laakko’s helpers who set up the display includes, l-r, fifth graders Makayla Smith, Logan DesRochers and Kianna Schroeder, fourth grader Sayla Andrews, 12th grader Sydney Mukka and fourth grader Kayla Lamson. March is Reading Month for Baraga students.

Baraga students are enjoying some late-winter activities that are stimulating minds and breaking up the season. A science fair involved kindergarten through fifth graders. Students selected their projects and went to work. The finished science projects line the entire elementary hallway.  Judges were sixth grade math and science and elementary gym teacher Dan Dompierre, Title 1 paraprofessional David Cladas and school volunteer Walleen Falstad. They spent time pouring through the exhibits and awarding ribbons on Thursday, Feb. 25, 2016. Students in kindergarten, first and second grade worked on science projects as classroom groups. The older third-fifth graders built their own exhibits. To read more, subscribe to the L’Anse Sentinel online, or buy a print copy at our local retailers.
