Mrs. Harrison's first-grade class got a head start on Thanksgiving by going to the food bank to fill bags of rice and beans. The students also collected and donated more than 40 pounds of food when they visited.
Students in Ms. Wimmer's fifth-grade class broke new ground as aspiring actors and playwrights. Megan Parham, Jeremy Sobocinski and Erin Twohy were the creative force behind the students' classroom production titled, "When Animals Strike Back." The "Three-Headed Production Company" wrote, directed and starred in the production along with classmates. The play is a comical farce on an animal who comes back to life after being run over on the road by a rather deranged but interesting person. The students toured the building entertaining classes. The play was well received.
