As September nears, we are all eagerly awaiting for the green light to invite JiJi the penguin back to Sexton Elementary School for math madness. Students have the opportunity to earn recognition for achieving certain benchmarks along the way and classes can earn the coveted JiJi Penguin Beach Ball to hang in their classroom.
A JiJi Beach Ball!!!!!!! WHAT?!?!?!?! That sounds exciting. In order to win a JiJi Beach Ball your class needs to be the class with the highest syllabus progress every month. We award a Penguin to one Primary Class and one Intermediate Class every month.
Don't get too excited though. Buff Craig, our amazing second grade team leader is already staking claims on the first primary JiJi Beach Ball. She already tried to steal JiJi right out of my office.
So my friends the challenge has been presented. JiJi is about to take over Sexton!!!
