A visit from Jordy Nelson
Mrs. Lawrenz's 5th grade class was rewarded for their diligent reading with a visit from Jordy Nelson.
Students placed cars on a map of the United States when they earned Reading Counts points. The reward for reaching Green Bay, Wisconsin was a visit from Green Bay Packers wide receiver, Jordy Nelson, who is Mrs. Lawrenz's brother.
Jordy's message to the students was that you can accomplish your goals and reach your dreams with sacrifice and hard work. He also stressed the importance of a good education.
The students had lots of questions for Jordy. They all received one of Jordy's rookie cards and his signature on an item they brought with them.
