Blue Jay Publishing: Your child can become an author!
Excelsior Elementary is excited to announce Blue Jay Publishing. Our mission is to provide students in 3rd through 5th grade the opportunity to write stories outside of the school day, which are above and beyond the classroom curriculum/assignments.
Books for Bikes
Excelsior Elementary School has partnered with the Excelsior Masonic Lodge to challenge young readers. Students that meet their monthly reading goal are entered into a monthly drawing to win a gift card. In addition, at the end of the year all those students that meet their monthly reading goals are also entered in the drawing for a bike.
