Wildcat News for December 14, 2023

Mrs. Wheeler’s fifth grade Social Studies class has been learning about the early settlements in America. They finished the novel Blood on the River that told the story of Jamestown, and they journaled everyday as if they were one of the early settlers. They created the Jamestown settlement out of edible materials and entered it into the gingerbread contest.

L-R:  5th graders Raylie Latta, Norah Bryant, Landon Stanley, Crew Watson, Landon McCartor, unnamed student, Lexi Gaisford, Audia McIntyre, and Avalina Barnett.

On Monday, December 4, 2023, Ms. Landers and Mr. Shoaf took 27 of the 4th-8th grade students on a reward trip to the skating rink in Elk City.  Students qualified for the trip by learning their multiplication math facts and being able to complete them within 3 minutes for the 5-8th grade and 4th graders had to complete them within 5 minutes.  Students worked hard on learning their math facts.  The Farmers and Merchants Bank graciously paid for the pizza that they enjoyed as a reward.
