Platte Center Elementary News and Events
Accelerated Reader Kickoff
Platte Center Elementary students and staff kicked off our Accelerated Reader program for the 2016-2017 school year. The theme this year is “Sports”. Lakeview High School Cheerleaders were present and surprised the student body by cheering on the students to “READ! READ! READ! Their cheer encouraged students to exercise their minds and open new doors by reading books. A bulletin board in the hallway will display sports cards earned by students when they reach their 1st Semester Accelerated Reader goal, which is set by their classroom teacher, based on their reading level. There is also a poster in the hallway displaying school-wide progress toward a 6,000 point goal for the year. As the student body earns points for reading books and passing Accelerated Reader quizzes, a soccer ball flies closer to the soccer goal. If the 6,000 point goal is reached by the end of the year, we will have a sports fun day to celebrate the student’s reading success!

Elementary Music Concert Changes
Due to the overcrowding at last year's Elementary Christmas Concert, some changes have been made for the 2016-17 school year to ensure students and parents have a more enjoyable experience.
Kindergarten-3rd Grade students will have a Christmas concert on December 20th, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. Doors willopen at 5:45 p.m. Because of the increase in attendance at the concert, saving seats will not be allowed.
4th-6th Grade students will have a spring concert. Date and time to be announced.
This change intends to alleviate traffic, parking, and seating issues that were experienced last year. If you have questions or concerns regarding this change, please call your building principal.
