Miss Smith's Alternative Kindergarten classroom (Stewart Elementary) made "Bat Hats" during Bat & Spider week to compliment their lesson on rhyming words. They practiced cutting paper strips and following directions to glue their bats together. When they finished, the students had fun drawing spooky bat faces with white crayons on their hats. The special hats were saved for the day of the October Fall Party.  Everyone looked "Spooky" and had lots of fun!

There was a big surprise for the students when they had lunch a few weeks ago.  Principal Mrs. Harris was there with a big smile helping to serve lunch.  The main dish was chili and with only three staff working in the kitchen she pitched in to help with the 4 lunch shifts. (k- 3).  In between shifts, she walked around the lunch room as the students ate to mingle with the students.  One student asked her if she was the new "Chef".  It was a fun day!

The Washington Jr. High Student Council members made custom printed fall t-shirts with Wesley Halcyon House residents on October 6.  On the first Wednesday of each month, each of the four schools rotate to send a group of students to Wesley Halcyon House to spread a little sunshine!  Activities range from arts/ crafts, music, drama performances, community service, games, readings etc.  On the third Tuesday of each month, students visit the United Presbyterian Home to enjoy time with their residents in similar activities.  It is a lot of fun for everyone!
