Mrs. Frizzell's first graders celebrated Dr. Seuss' Birthday by making hats, reading Green Eggs and Ham, finding rhyming words, and playing "Pin the Eggs on the Ham!"

Mrs. Elise read The Bread and Butter Battle to all the third graders, and the kids ate bread with butter and had a battle on who ate

Mrs. Wallace had a Dr. Seuss feast of green eggs and ham cookies, cute cupcakes, Seuss punch, etc. for her sixth graders, and Mrs. Hayes had yummy cupcakes with truffula trees for her sixth graders.

Our Kindergarten through Second grade were given their SAT10 Achievement Test last week. They worked very hard on their tests, and we are confident that they "Stomped the Test".
The majority of our library books have been returned to the library. There are some students who still have not returned their books or have misplaced books; notices have been sent home with those students. Students must pay for all lost or damaged books before they will be issued their report cards. If you find any books around the house, please return them to Mrs. Grace in the library.
Our Fourth Graders went to Jackson to see the play Cinderella and eat lunch at Chucky Cheese last Thursday. They had a blast! Thank you to Ms. Erin and Mrs. Whitney for giving their students the opportunity to celebrate the end of the school year in such a fun way. We appreciate the parents who went to serve as chaperones.
Our Honor Club for Seventh and Eighth Grade have been on their annual end of the year trip this week. They traveled to Gatlinburg this week and have been enjoying lots of fun activities. We hope that they will have safe travel on their return trip home tomorrow.
This Friday is our annual Accelerated Reader Celebration, Fun in the Sun, for those students who participated in A.R. this year. The students will have a fun day outside playing games and enjoying a jumper, an inflatable obstacle course, and a HUGE slide. We are so appreciative to Mrs. Brenda Scott, School Health Coordinator for securing a Tobacco Prevention grant from the State of Tennessee and the Health Department to provide the jumpers for our Accelerated Reader Celebration and coming to speak with our middle school students about the dangers of Tobacco. Ten of our Sixteen Classrooms earned the national certification Master Classroom from Renaissance Learning, and our Library Media Center earned the national certification of Master Library. Our Beaver Hornet Readers ROCK! I am so very proud of all our students, and am proud to be their librarian.
Students will want to bring a towel or blanket to sit on Friday for Fun in the Sun. Please make sure that your child is wearing sunscreen when they come to school to avoid a sunburn. They may also want to bring a small cooler with water in it or bring a water bottle that they can refill during the day to keep them hydrated.
