Wildcat News for week of January 9, 2023

Arnett School is going strong since returning from Christmas break.  We are hopeful that all the sickness is gone, and we are so excited that most all students and staff are back and healthy.  We continue to ask that if your child is sick you keep them home until they are fever free for 24 hours without medication.  We appreciate the parents so much for helping the kids with the work that they miss when they must be absent.

Last month 15 Arnett FFA Members attended Made For Excellence/Advanced Leadership Development in Tulsa, OK.  Students were assigned rooms with FFA members from across the state.  They listened to various speakers and attended workshops.  This is for 8th-12th grade FFA students to improve on established leadership skills.  The students had a blast and learned many new things.

January is sure to be a busy month.  Some of the upcoming events are the local and county spelling bees, the 100th day of school, lots of basketball games and tournaments, speech tournaments, and the FFA and 4-H kids gearing up for stock show season.  The elementary teachers will have more training on ECAW, our new writing curriculum, as well as a Professional Development day on Monday, January 16.  

Mrs. Wheeler’s 5th grade class spent the last few weeks reading the novel “Blood on the River” about Jamestown.  They then constructed their own Jamestown using only edible materials.  The students loved the novel and learned so much about the lost colonies.  Pictured L-R:  Jozie Latta, Dylan Hernandez, Noah Holman, Carlie Dowler, Sabe Williams.  Not pictured Lelani Daniels and Alex Strick.
