Last summer our school duck, Ethyl was in a contest for the most traveled duck through Lifetouch School Pictures. she did very well and came in 2nd place. Our school won $300.00 for school supplies through Office Max. Ethyl started out in Texarkana and traveled 3106 miles over a 3 week period. In September she traveled to the Panama Canal, NY city, The White House, Kentucky, London and more. Thanks to all who showed Ethyl the world and helped our school!
