Softball season is winding down. Our current record is 9-5 for varsity. We just completed our area games with Evangel, winning both games of the doubleheader to seal the #1 spot in our area. This is the second year in a row for that accomplishment. I am so very very proud of the girls and the effort they have shown this season. This automatically places us in the state tournament in Montgomery, May 5. Next Monday is our senior day for Lindsey and Kristina.

I cannot believe this year is coming to an end!  Where has the time gone? We recently received our class books and they look GREAT!  Each student wrote and illustrated a story and a poem.  Their story, “When I Grow Up”, was about where they saw themselves in the future.  They also did a wonderful job on the illustrations! We enjoyed our recent trip to the McWane Science Center in Birmingham.  There was so much to see that we could have stayed for days. Spelling Bee Winners: March 17 – Laney and Kenadie March 24 –...

We also got to dig for dinosaur bones, build cars, and build with large blocks. We stood in a Tornado Machine and experienced 78 mph winds. We watched a movie in the IMAX theater about earthquakes. We have also been busy...

Sixth Grade

Wow! It is April already! In March, we did a novel study on the first book in the Chronicles of Narnia Series: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. The students really enjoyed it! Throughout the novel study, the students completed chapter summaries as pictured. There are some really artistic students in the sixth grade. To conclude the novel study, I treated the students to watching the movie. They immediately noted the differences between the movie and the book. After spring break, we enjoyed a field trip to the McWane...
