The Arnett Lady Wildcats took home the title of District Champions this past week advancing them forward on the road to the State Fastpitch Tournament. The Lady Wildcats played two great games coming out on top . They beat the Lady Dusters of Beaver 14-0. Next, they played the Boise City Lady Wildcats beating them 13-0 and 19-3 .
The Wildcats traveled to Fort Cobb to play districts. The boys won their first game 12-0 against Cement, but unfortunately their year ended with a loss to Fort Cobb - Broxton (currently ranked 2nd in the state). The Junior High boys also ended their season this past week, and finished with a record of 12-2. It has been many years since Arnett has had enough boys to make-up a full baseball team, and we are very excited to see what Coach Burcham and his teams do in the future.
Mrs. Broyles has been working diligently with her 5th and 6th graders on musical stories. Four groups of students chose children's books to read aloud and added music to them. They learned how incorporating sounds and beats can make the stories more fun and interesting. The groups performed their stories in front of the entire grade school in the auditorium. There were many laughs and giggles from the audience during these entertaining stories.
Sixth grade science has been studying living organisms and the cell theory They have been learning about the differences between plant and animal cells. Each student had to turn a giant sugar cookie into a cell by using icing and different candy. When finished, they had to label each organelle inside their cell. Mrs. Ham said they all did a fantastic job. Mrs. Ham added, "I think their favorite part might have been getting to dig in and eat their cells!"
