On Tuesday Arnett Library hosted their first Library Family Night. This was an opportunity for the Library to show Arnett children and parents our new display on loan from the Science Museum of Oklahoma. The evening was filled with fun activities for the children and a lot of information all about Oklahoma. The community members that attended were able to create fossils with their children using play-doh, dinosaurs, and plaster. Mrs. Hamil read a story to the students about a rock that couldn’t roll. The kids in attendance then got a chance to see the displays and learn about earthquakes, rock formations, and tectonic plates along with all kinds of other information! It was a wonderful event that was put on by Mrs. Ham and Mrs. Hamil. There has been some great learning opportunities for our students with this amazing display so stay tuned for more information coming soon!
Students and their siblings gathered around to listen to Mrs. Hamil’s story.

On Tuesday Mrs. Dowler took 8th-12th grade female students to the Women in Science Conference. More than 1,500 students and 150 teachers (grades 6-12) from over 60 schools across Oklahoma attended. Arnett High School had 21 high students attend. The hands-on conference is designed to get girls in grades 6-12 excited about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM); it also shows students that STEM careers are exciting, attainable, and rewarding through immersive activities and interactive sessions. This is an event the science students look forward to each year.
This Wednesday Mrs. Landers, Mrs. Wheeler, Mrs. Ham, and Mrs. Dowler took 4th-8th grade students to the National Cowboy Hall of Fame Museum in Oklahoma City for the Wild Weather Camp with David Payne. The students learned about different types of weather, the causes for each type of weather, and safety tips in different situations.
