During FFA week the students took the information they learned and applied it to a speech they presented in the classroom. They gathered information from FFA members during their barnyard experience. They listened intently during the presentation on farm safety. The students were able to answer several questions and worked together in groups to present the information they learned.
Mark your calendars for Monday, April 19, 2021. It will be a fun-filled evening as we present three programs in the Middle School Auditorium. The kindergarten class will be performing at 6. Kindergarten has been working hard on an Easter Bunny-themed program. The third-grade class will be performing at 6:45. Third-grade has been preparing a program all about making a difference in the world we live in. Finally, the fourth-grade class will be performing at 7:30. We will be keeping our fourth-grade program subject a secret, so please come out to be entertained. As usual, Mrs. Dooley will be displaying the artwork from each grade level in the Middle School Commons for you to enjoy. Thank you all for your continued support of the arts and the efforts of your students!
**A note for parents** if your student is performing, they will need to be in their home classroom 15 minutes prior to showtime.
