K Thanksgiving Feast
After studying about Pilgrims and Sioux Indians, the kindergarten students at Pontotoc Elementary School had a Thanksgiving Feast provided by the cafeteria. They also participated in an Indian PowWow. During the PowWow, Zach Fauver, a senior at PHS, shared a traditional dance in costume.  It was a great Thanksgiving celebration!
Ice Water Challenge
Pontotoc Elementary students helped raise over $1,000 for "Race For The Cure" in the month of October. Part of that money was raised by purchasing cups of water for the Ice Water Challenge. The kids had a GREAT time watching their teachers get soaked!
 
PES Fossil Hunt
PES's 2nd grade gifted students spent nine weeks studying about fossils, researching Roy Chapman Andrews (who discovered the largest dinosaur graveyard in Mongolia and the inspiration for the character of Indiana Jones) and Mary Anning (the Fossil Girl of Lyme Regis), and identifying fossils in class. On October 22, these students and many parents, grandparents, and relatives experienced digging for fossils at the Blue Springs Fossil Site. Area "fossil experts" were there to help students identify their fossils. Some of their finds were exogyra costatas, turetellas, fossilized crabs, and a shark's tooth!
K-Spears-Pumpkin Patch
On Friday, October 17th, Penny Spears took her kindergarten class to the Blue Mountain Pumpkin Patch.  Please enjoy the following pictures!
