Line dancing for staff

We are very excited to start our after school, line dancing class for staff members. This class has a dual purpose. We will have the opportunity to burn some calories and have help with our fitness goals, but we will also have fun. Get ready for some great music and great lessons. Classes will be held in the gym each Monday after school. The class will take place from 4:30 to 5:30. It is not too late to sign up. See Monica Black or Amanda Moore for details. 

Chess club is here

Chess club is here

We were very impressed with the number of students who showed up, after school to learn to play chess. Twenty-three students, (third, fourth and fifth graders) showed up to learn to play the game. We want to thank Paige Portele and the high school students who were gracious enough to volunteer to work with our students. Shugart students came prepared, having studied the chess pieces and how they move. We were so proud that they had taken that homework assignment seriously. The high school students and Shugart students spent the last half of the hour playing chess.The next step is to learn information from the slide show that was shared. We had a fun time learning, and I am looking forward to the next meeting. We meet each Thursday from 3:30 to 4:30 pm. 

Getting ready for the Turkey trot

Students in all grade levels are busy getting ready for our annual Turkey Trot. The Turkey trot is a fun run in which students compete in a running race to see who has the fastest time. Every exercise or game in PE helps kids develop the skills they need to endure the race. Turkey trot is a fun, annual event. Parents are invited to see the students run. There will be concessions for sale. It is always a good time. We are looking forward to seeing everyone.
