JUNIOR HIGH | HIGH SCHOOL NEWS
Holiday Spirit week was tons of fun! The students enjoyed showing pride and unity while sprinting towards Christmas break!
Culinary Arts students Leilani Roderique and Savanah Phelps pose with their finished product. They made Nutella Star bread for their semester final.
As a part of the school's safety initiative, we were glad to welcome both Douglas and Ozark County officers for a drug scan. This will be occurring every quarter as student safety is our top priority.
Junior High StuCo's "Fire and Ice" dance was very well attended and lots of fun!

GIRLS BASKETBALL UPDATE
Girls have been working hard everyday in practice on both the physical part and mental aspect of basketball. We came back from Christmas break with the Sparta tournament where we lost a hard fought game to Verona by 4 and then we were able to defeat Sparta and Pierce City to claim the consolation championship. The following week we defeated a tough Spokane team, and fell just a little short to Dora while playing our 5th game in 8 days.

BOYS BASKETBALL UPDATE
Varsity record: 3-11 JV record: 8-3
We have competed well in stretches. We still are striving to be more consistent with taking care of the ball, rebounding and overall defensive execution. When the wins aren't comng as often as you like, the main thing we can do is to keep trying and to focus on the team. To our guys credit, they seem to be doing both. We still have several games in front of us and will strive each practice and game to improve and compete as hard as we can.

The 2nd quarter assembly was held on January 10th. During the assembly we recognized second through sixth grade honor roll, perfect attendance, 97% or greater attendance and October, November, and December Students of the Month. Perfect attendance was outstanding as 48 students received this recognition.
Principal's Reading Challenge
The Principal’s Reading Challenge wrapped up on December 20th. This year’s challenge was another huge success as students posted a record number of AR points. Overall, 92 third through sixth graders reached the reading goal. Students that successfully made the reading challenge were rewarded with a trip to Skateland.
Elks Hoop Shoot
Elks Hoop Shoot was held on December 19, 20, and 21 . The Elks Hoop Shoot is a free throw shooting contest for students ages 8 to 13. The elementary school had 55 participants in the event this year. The winners will advance to Mountain Home, Arkansas to compete in the Regional contest on January 19th.
PAT/Preschool Christmas Extravaganza
The Kindergarten ended the first quarter with a parent/student activity. We had over 25 parents that came in and assisted in decorating Christmas ornaments. Students were able to paint, color, glitter, and use stamps to make their beautiful ornaments.
Fifth graders were given a mixture of sand, salt, rocks, and iron filings. Each group of students had to come up with a step by step plan to separate each component of the mixture. Then, students were required to test their plan to ensure it worked and was the most efficient process for separating the mixture.
