A letter from Mrs. Suckow!
Wow! What an awesome homecoming week! While I couldn’t find a clear answer, my research led me to discover that three universities, Baylor, Illinois, and Missouri all stake a claim to have celebrated the first homecoming in the 1909-1911 time frame. Homecoming festivities are centered around traditions and this year’s Wildcat Homecoming added a new tradition to the mix, a scavenger hunt on Wednesday to add to the parade, powder puff, tailgate lunch (thank you Mitchell County Cattlemen for grilling), Friday night’s game and the dance on Saturday. I hope all the students had a great week and lots of fun. Good luck to the football team Friday night and the volleyball team on Saturday. Have a fun and safe weekend. Remember to make good choices.
Reminder! With the colder weather upon us...
Homecoming Parade and Kind and Queen Crowning!
Dress up Days!
3rd & 4th Grade Flag Football
Thanks again to all those who headed this up and were such positive role models for this group! I see awesome encouraging words coming from these students while playing on their own and their love of the game is even bigger.
October is national Health Month! Students walked from Lake Hendricks on Wednesday.
Conservation class with Mrs. Fair!
Mr. Conway served as a guest speaker for the Conservation class on Tuesday, October 4. He discussed several topics related to fly fishing including: local fly fishing locations, the feeding habits of trout, tackle options, and more. As for the art of casting with a fly rod, Mr. Conway shared his knowledge and he also allowed the students to give casting a try. It was an honor having a Riceville staff member share their love for an outdoor sport with other Wildcats.
Congrats Coach Bauer on the E. Wayne Cooley "YOU CAN" award!
