Numa: Leslie Brown's 5th-grade class spread Christmas Cheer last week by visiting other classrooms to share their rendition of “Twas the Night Before Christmas.” The students learned the poem by heart and then divided it up so that groups of four to 5 students each recited a section. The students made it fun and spread holiday cheer through the classrooms.
LES: Students and their families flooded Lahontan for their annual Winterfest celebration. It is a fundraiser for the school that supports activities for students throughout the year including the end of the year celebration. This year students and their families got to make fun Christmas crafts, enjoy yummy treats, play fun holiday games, and they got to meet and get a picture with Santa. There were some incredible raffle items as well. Gross and Wade Henderson, lineman and electrical work. Additional guest speakers scheduled to come in at a later date include: Daniel Slentz, computer and technology; Chase Johnson, culinary; and Tedd Ott, welding, mechanical.
ECB: The fun annual Jingle Jog was held last week. Local first responders came to help pass out peppermint candies, and the student's families attended and participated in laps as well. This is a friendly little competition between classes. Each student and their family complete laps, and at the end of each lap, they are given a peppermint candy by the first responders. Once the time is up, students return to their classrooms to count their laps (peppermint candies). The class with the most laps wins a fun prize. This annual event has become quite a popular and treasured tradition and is loved by all ECB staff, students, and families.
CCMS: Advisory students at CCMS are showing off their crafting skills and getting into the holiday spirit on club days. Students in Zoey Brown’s class decorated cookies, while students in Torri Conley’s class designed and painted wood slice ornaments. When students signed up for classes, they picked a club based on something they were interested in. Then, the club they picked became their advisory class. Teachers get extended time on Fridays to do fun club activities with their advisory students.
CCHS: Two esports teams that have qualified for the final tournament through the PlayVS Esports organization.
