The Arnett High School Library was full of activity this last week as student learning of multiple subjects was moved out of the classroom. The 3rd grade class celebrated finishing Roald Dahl’s Matilda with an interactive breakout complete with chocolate cake upon their success. The 4th grade put on crowns and assumed the roles of Lords and Ladies to complete a Parts of Speech breakout. The 5th graders were recruited in a breakout to the Sons of Liberty to protest the King’s unfair taxation without representation. Sequoyah Book voting was also set up complete with voting booths, ballots and stickers.
The Arnett Softball season started off in full swing on Tuesday with wins for both the JH and HS at home against Buffalo. The JH boys baseball team toppled Sweetwater 9-4 before the HS game was called early due to weather with the Wildcats up 9-1. Thursday the Lady Cats traveled to Ft. Cobb for the High School Softball Bash. They played 6 games within a span of 12 hours, winning against Lookeba-Sickles, Canute, and Cyril twice before bringing home the runner up trophy after two losses to 3A Boone-Apache.
