Pictures from our trip.
The Senior Class, Ms. Owens, and I (Ms. Peck) enjoyed a trip to the Smoky Mountains this past week. We stayed in a beautiful lodge. We visited Dollywood, Dolly Parton’s Stampede, Gatlinburg, and Pigeon Forge. We were even lucky enough to see a momma bear and her three cubs. We all had such a good time! We would like to thank the Administration and the Board of Education for allowing us to go. We would also like to thank Charles Peck for agreeing to be our male chaperone. I think he had a good time too.
Pre-k students have enjoyed observing caterpillars and watching them grow and change. We learned about words like chrysalis and cocoon. We were excited to see them transform into butterflies and then we released them!!
