Thank you to the many parents and volunteers who came and read with our awesome students at our annual Read-a-Thon!
We were honored to have Mayor John Curtis, Superintendent Keith Rittel, and many school district and community members here. It's always a fun activity and it is a good chance to share the love of reading with our students.

In September, we had a Rachel’s Challenge assembly. In case you don’t remember or you weren’t there, here’s what it was about. Rachel Scott was a kind girl and was very sweet and nice to everyone. Her parents found her handprints behind her dresser with the words, “These hands belong to Rachel Joy Scott and will someday touch millions of hearts.” Rachel’s Challenge is a program that reminds students of the importance of being kind and positive towards others.
To accept Rachel’s Challenge you have to do the following:
1. Use kind words and do kind things.
2. Accept and include others.
3. Choose positive influences.
4. Set goals.
5. Keep a journal.
Students were given the opportunity to accept Rachel's Challenge. Those who chose to, signed a banner pledging that they will try to be positive and kind towards others. The banner is hanging outside the lunch room to remind us to be kind. Also, Mr. McCarty reminds us everyday during morning announcements to remember our pledge and reads off messages to remind us to be kind and positive.
So, we know we are going to accept Rachel’s Challenge and we invite you to join us.

Thank you to our amazing choir and orchestra for performing such wonderful show for us on December 3rd! They played and sang a variety of holiday songs and it really got us in the holiday spirit. Our choir and orchestra students put in many hours to prepare to perform for us we are so glad they are willing to share their talents and hard work with us. A special thank you to our orchestra teacher, Janie Chambers, and our choir director, Mrs. Linda Seamons, for the many hours of preparation that went into such a great show! Also, a very special thank you to Mr. Kent Seamons for being so willing to share his time and talents by accompanying the choir.
Amelia Earhart's music programs are the best!

Amelia Earhart students honored some very special Veteran's at the Veteran's Day Assembly. Our sixth graders had a presentation and we had some great musical numbers by our second graders and choir. This is always a special assembly where we get the opportunity to thank some of our amazing Veterans. We are so grateful for the many men and women who serve and have served our country by protecting the freedoms we have.
