Mr. Daniels shaved his beard and mustache off in front of his class. He had challenged the students to read 200 books and the reward was shaving his beard. Eight students from the class were randomly selected to help. He shaved half in the morning and the other half in the afternoon. The class continues to read and record their books.
The classes of Mrs. McBee, Mrs. George and Mr. Daniels are learning about the democratic process. The classes will hold a mock election Nov. 2 for interested students, staff and parents. Students will register to vote. Each applicant will receive a pamphlet on the presidential candidates. Each registered voter will receive a card entitling him or her to vote. There will be a master list of voters; and voters will need to show their cards and sign their names in order to get a ballot. A public opinion survey is conducted each morning and the results will be announced the next day during the morning announcements.
