Fourth Grade learned about the importance of St Andrews and they celebrated the day by inviting their parents into class and reciting the Scottish themed poems they had written, as well as also sharing what they had learned about these topics. They also tried Irn Bru and had shortbread, which were very popular.
We celebrated it early because the school is closed over Thanksgiving and we would not have been able to celebrate on the actual day.

The 4th Grade teachers had a big surprise this week on Tuesday when the whole school were told to come to the gym hall for a surprise meeting?
When we all got there, the whole school erupted into wild cheering when three players from the North Carolina Panthers (NFL American Football) walked in alongwith the team mascot Sir Purr. They are the local team and have a big fan base in the area.
The reason they were there was to support the award of a cheque to 4th grade for a technology initiative in the classroom. The cheque is a Bright Ideas grant from Union Power Cooperative and we had no idea that it had been awarded to our school.
It was all very exciting and a big surprise for us all! Learn more about the Panthers by clicking below:
