The past few days in 9th Grade English, students gave presentations over historical events. Then, after researching and presenting, the next step for them is to write a 4-5 page historical fiction short story based off of their events in partners. Ask them to read it to you when they're done!

The 1st graders had to help out Turkey Tom and disguise him so that he wouldn’t become the Thanksgiving centerpiece. Then the 5th grade class judged the turkeys and voted for Best hiding spot, Best coloring, Most creative, Best handwriting, and Best overall Turkey. Turkey Tom is safe until next year!

In 2nd grade, we are learning why there is sand at the beach. Students were asked to pretend there were boulders (paper) at the top of the mountain and as they tumbled down they were torn into tiny pieces and eroded into sand by the time they reach the beach.

Out with the old in with the new! We upgraded our bleachers to include some aisles with handrails and also change the color from orange to gray. This means that there is a roll off dumpster on the west side of the Tom Young Community Center that is full of the old orange bleachers. If anyone wants to come and grab some of them as a souvenir or if someone would want to do a project with them they are certainly welcome to come and grab as many as they want! The dumpster will be picked up tomorrow at around 1 o’clock so you need to get anything out of there before that!
