We have been doing very well with extra clothing for our students except in the area of both boys and girls pants. We need gently used all sizes for the use of our students. Thank you for checking on your children's outgrown clothes for pants only please.
Thank you to the students and parents for letting us know of additional students who will be published in "Anthology of Poetry by Young Americans." Other students include Aaliyah Moore, Emily Wooten, Randy Wooten and Beighdyn Mason.
If you have not returned the bottom portion of your child's letter or gone on line to give permission, this needs to be done by January 25. The deadline has been extended. You do not have to order a book to give permission. You just need to fill out the section that says, "You have permission to publish my child's poem" and mail it in. I will help anyone who needs help with this if you will just give me a call here at school. The following are poems written by fourth grade students. We hope you enjoy them. More poems will be published in next week's news.

Leaves are falling.
They can change colors to green, orange and red.
They are beautiful when they fall.
They have a crunch sound when you walk on them.
They are crisp.
They smell like fall.
Make a pile and jump in them.
Fall smells so good.
by Aaliyah Moore
Howl, howl at the moon.
Little cubs snooze, snooze, snooze.
Tight and snugged in dens.
They dream of catching hens.
Mamas hunting out for food.
by MacKenzie Denbow
Elk has come, that means
winter is close.
What do we do.
We turn on the heat, if we don't want to freeze.
Student Authors' Night
Have you marked your calendar for Wednesday, January 30, at 6:30 p.m. This is when we have invited families to come to a school-wide literacy night.
Won't you please come and support students as they share their portfolio writing pieces.
For added pleasure, Eileen and the Explorers Program will provide Italian sandwiches and baked goods to be purchased. So, bring your family early for supper and enjoy the literacy evening in your student's classroom.
Mrs. Mullen's class
Mrs. Mullen's son sent her a beautiful shawl with camel hair around the neck from Oman.
If one of the classroom students is feeling a little cool, they may wear this shawl. Bradley was very happy to model it for us.
What fun it is to see several cool students sharing this shawl together as they concentrate on their work.
Due to the large number of children who have been experiencing a fever we wanted to remind parents to please keep your child home for 24 ours following the fever with no Tylenol or Ibuprofen.
On Friday afternoon the students were able to be involved with the Bobcat Pride Ticket Rewards which had been scheduled before vacation. The activities included edible crafts, bird feeders, board games, gym games, reading in the library, friendship bracelets and outside recess.
There were three 30-minute sessions for each activity. Each student chose and signed up for three activities which were then written on an index card. Every 30 minutes the students traveled to the next activity on their card.
What fun the students had because with the wide choice of things to choose from, there was something for each student.
