Mrs. Kelley's second grade class tied fleece blankets and donated them to a Navajo Reservation in Arizona so that many children will have a warmer Christmas! We loved getting the blankets ready. We learned to work together and helped each other learn to tie knots. We also learned that doing something nice for someone else makes our hearts happy!
The amazing Cougar Choir performed their Christmas concert today for the school and they will perform tonight for parents and other guests. They have worked so hard the past few months and they sounded great. The Cougar Choir is directed by Mrs. Kathy Kelley and accompanied by Miss Mary Blackner. The choir is for students 4th-6th grade. If any students 4th-6th grade want to join sign-ups are going on right now. They can sign up through the 4-H Program.

The sixth grade created their very own Wax Museum. Each student researched somebody who had a positive influence on the world. After researching and writing bio-riddles, they created boards to share with both the school and parents. Eight students had the opportunity to share their bio-riddle with the parents: Isabelle Crossley, Jarrisen Egan, Ellie Kapp, Dalan Durrant, Addison Terry, Corbin Carter, Brooklyn Hone, and Logan Dahl. We had a great night!
