WASHTA - Recently the fourth grade students at River Valley have had two very special guests in their classroom.
The first was Esther Weis from the Iowa State University Woodbury County Extension Office. She was visiting the fourth grade students to share with them a nutritious fruit smoothie. Weis visited the classroom on several occasionsteaching the students about goodnutrition, how to read food labels, and how to make healthy food choices.
During De Stigter's visit she talked to the students about her job as Superintendent and how important reading is in her life. Another one of her clues was that she typically reads over 100 books in a year. She said because of that it was very difficult for her to pick just one book to read to the students. The book she decided on was "Oh The Places You'll Go," by Dr. Seuss.
All of the students enjoyed the visit and are very excited for the next Mystery Reader to visit their classroom.
