We had our annual Turkey Gobble Off today!  What a fun tradition.  It is very entertaining.  Each class picked a winner and then there was a grade level gobble off.  Each class winner won a turkey, grae level winners received a trophy, and the 2 overall winners won a turkey!  Good job everyone!!

Also, as part of the assembly it was announced that for the Box Top competition for the month (boy vs. girls) the girls won!  So Mr. Murray and Mr. Craig got a pie in their face.  

Gobble Off Grade Level Winners:

Kindergarten--Tristen Prince

The second grade went on a field trip around the community. They visited the police station where Officer Wall took them on a tour around the station. They also visited the pharmacy, bank, library and museum where Ted Jones  presented to them. They performed their Thanksgiving program for the senior citizens and they loved celebrating this wonderful time of year with them. It was worth walking in the bitter cold for this special day!  Second graders also shared their Thanksgiving Program with the school and their parents.  They did so great!

The sixth grade created their very own Wax Museum.  Each student researched somebody who had a positive influence on the world.  They wrote bio-riddles and created boards to share with both the school and parents.  Eight students had the opportunity to share their bio-riddle with the parents: Brinley Bettis, Hayden Davis, Jada Wadsworth, Cam Ford, Melina Wilde, Myah McClellan, Avi Giles, and Teagon Miner.  We had a great night!
