Our fifth grade enjoyed a great day out in nature learning from and enjoying a number of veterans and military telling their stories. It was such a great way to help our students understand that our freedoms came at a price, and that we have great men and women who help us each day to keep those freedoms. Thanks so much for this wonderful day!
We are so excited for Ty Jones, Elma McDaniel, Maia Baird, Violet Redfearn, Tayson Hawks and Janey Heath for winning 2 rodeo tickets to the Fiesta Days Rodeo. Ty and Elma also won cowboy boots, jeans and a cowboy hat. These were won in conjunction with a month long reading activity. Congratulations!
