Field and Water Day Fun
This past Thursday all of our students appeared to have a great time getting wet under this hot Texas sun. In addition to lots of water, we also had all kinds of games and prizes. Even a water balloon may have been tossed at a teacher now and then. It was a great way to celebrate the coming summer together.

Mrs. Kennedy receives the "Excellence In Teaching" award
This past Thursday at our annual constituency meeting the superintendent of the Texas Conference, Kisha Norris, presented Mrs. Kennedy with the Excellence in Teaching award. This award is presented to only two teachers in the Texas Conference each year who show exemplary teaching practices. Go, Mrs. Kennedy! We are so proud of you.
8th grade builds and tests toothpick bridges
One of the last things our 8th grade has done this year in science class is test their engineering abilities. They built toothpick bridges using only toothpick and glue. Every student's design was different. All held more than their constructed weights but some held over 40 lbs. These brilliant kids are ready for high school.
Bump Up Day was a great success
Today all our students were able to visit their future teacher of next school year. Students had the opportunity to get a small glimpse into their new room and meet their new teacher. After learning about the teacher and going over what a regular day looks like, the teacher and students had one lesson together.
This week 2nd grade students got to teach the teacher
You are never too grown to learn. Mrs. Shockey has been learning these last couple of weeks as her second grade students have been teaching her. Each student was allowed to choose something that they know about and share it with Mrs. Shockey and the class. So much fun for everyone.
