Cranberry Juice Taste Test

Mrs. Lisa Cummings with School Coordinated Health recently sponsored a taste test for the students. They sampled cranberry juice and then voted by dropping a colored paper square into a jar. Students chose a green square if they liked the juice and red if they did not. The final vote was 340 greens and 109 reds! Some moms report that students requested they buy some cranberry juice when they went grocery shopping.

Adventures of Thomas T. Turkey

This is Thomas T. Turkey, he has been going home with students and asking their families to make a list of what they are thankful for this year. (These lists are displayed in the front hallways of our school, you should stop by and see them.)
Last weekend he went home with the Dowdy Family and had a little adventure! Thomas T. went to jail. He was not in trouble or anything, he even was allowed to be an honorary dispatcher while he was there.
Keyton was Thomas T's host, so he took him along to help celebrate his friend, Jason's birthday. Keyton gave Thomas T. a tour of the jail and advised him that it was not a pleasant place to be and that he should always stay on the outside of the jail cells!

Special Hats

On Hat Day this week Emilee and Elisabeth wore hats their grandpa had loaned to them. They are pretty special because these are the hats he wore when he was in the United States Navy more than 50 years ago! What stories these hats could tell!
