Captain Donna Hetherington, from the Lexington Police Department, read The Cat in the Hat to Mrs. Overman's class. They enjoyed talking with her! Thanks to her for taking time out of her day to come!
First Grade Teachers
What a team of teachers!
Mrs. Tina Frizzell, Mrs. Andrea Wilkinson, Mrs. Kassie Overman, and Miss Amber Vineyard!
Our fourth grade student teacher, Miss Rachel Roberts really dressed the part as the Lorax and also read the book to the fourth graders! Good luck to her in her next student teaching position and her teaching position in the fall!
Helping The Frances Hensley Animal Shelter in Lexington
about 1 year ago
Mrs. Monica Rayas and her daughters, who volunteer at the Frances Hensley Animal Shelter in Lexington, brought Edward, the dog, and, Flannel, the cat, to visit the homerooms who made donations to the shelter. They went to the following homerooms: Mrs. Debbie, Mrs. Wilkinson, Mrs. Douglas, Mrs. Hayes, Mrs. Duncan, Mrs. Britt, Mrs. Pearson, and Mrs. Creech.
Mrs. Jamie Creech's sixth graders did a
project to help the shelter and have a box in the library for donations
that we are still collecting, so please continue to send them!
