Patriots Challenge

The Patriots Challenge begins here:

Join the Patriots Challenge Club! This club is for any scholar who is interested in going above and beyond the normal classroom expectations. All you need to do is learn about the topic and tell Mrs. Parker the answers during your recess/lunch break or before/after school. Questions can be answered in any order you choose. You can become a 1 star member or go all the way up to a 100 star member! Your name will be posted on the "Patriots Wall of Fame" as soon as you earn 15 stars.


 Learning is a lifelong journey: let's travel together.
