Mrs. Smothers’ 6th grade Social Studies started out this new year with their economics unit by stepping back in time. They were each given an occupation/trade and must barter their goods/trade skills in order to survive for a year. There were a lot of negotiations going on in class.

Ms. Skillman’s 7th grade enrichment class used angles and friction to slow a marble down in marble tube race creation. The design slowest was the goal to win the competition. There was a lot of excitement among the students as the one design everyone thought would win, actually slowed to a stop on two different runs. All of the creations were very different with multiple strategies and designs. Seeing all of the collaboration made Ms. Skillman’s teacher heart very happy! The winning time was 6.18 seconds! The team with the winning design was Jordan, Colten, and Tyler.

Our guys were able to gut it out and win the Bernie Invitational Tournament tonight over a really good Risco team! We found a way to win when shots weren't falling and our defense stepped up when we needed it! I can't say enough about this group of guys and cheerleaders. All day long they were excited for the game. The community and school were buzzing about the game tonight. I am beyond blessed to work in a school that cares so much and kids and families that care so much! I hope you all know how much we care about the kids! Thank you all for the support, thank you to the players for your commitment, it's a great night to be an Indian!
