With the help of our Principal Prize Patrol winner Isabell, the whole school got to watch Mr. Post and Mr. Scifres going taste bud to taste bud in the Beanboozled Challenge! They had to eat jelly beans that looked normal on the outside but could taste like stinky socks or dirty dishwater! Yuck! We're glad they have strong stomachs! #responsible #respectful #safe

Mrs. Seals’ class has the tower garden assembled. Students planted the seeds on Thursday. They practiced following step-by-step directions and counting. They are also now in the process of learning patience. The seedlings have to be 2-3 inches before they are transferred to the tower.
