Mrs. Burg invited Brad Edwards from Channel 5 news to join us on Wednesday to talk about severe weather.

Haley (7th), Bridget (6th), Ella (6th) & Brenton (6th) attended the Lenox Honor Band on March 25th.

Our 8th grade students experienced a day of segregation.  We had the red group and the green group.  Our red group experienced multiple restrictions throughout the day including how the used the water fountain.  This was an eye-opening experience for all of the students.  Students participated in the activity created by Miss Steinkamp in order to prepare their minds for reading “To Kill a Mocking Bird”.

Our Lenten Angels spent time this week discussing Holy Week and the order of events in Jesus’ final days.
