Becker Middle School sixth graders have been spoiled again this year by the staff at Liberty Paper International (LPI).  After a successful Environmental Reading Challenge in March & April, this May we were treated to pizza parties in our homerooms for 100% participation, and 39 of our students who chose to compete in Liberty's essay contest got to visit the facility, and have some MORE pizza, a tour, and prizes.  We had a second place tie between Wren W. and Gabriella D., and our contest winner was John N.  All three students earned generous Target gift cards.  We are so thankful to have Liberty as a partner every year for this set of reading and writing challenges for our kids!
