Every year our grade levels organize an evening of fun for parents to come out with their children to enjoy the school setting in a more informal way.  The 4th grade teachers sponsored Texas Night on October 14th.  We had about 60 families come to enjoy cookie decorating, games (the washer toss was a big hit and Texas Bingo), crafts, and dancing (Ms. Abbe was very tired after the night was up.  Sixty minutes of dancing is a lot after a long day at work.

This activity was a great way to kick back and spend some time with family, mingle with the teachers, and hang out with friends.  Our next Family Night will be November 20th.  The fifth grade will have a game night.  More details and pictures of Texas Night will come later this week.

We are through four weeks of school and we've had a wonderful start.  Our 5th Graders are not new to us, but their size is.  We're not used to having such tall folks walking our halls on a regular basis.  I'm very pleased at how they perform at school.  They are a very pleasant group of students.  I'm looking forward to having them "lead" for the 2nd straight year.

One of the best things about this group of students is their willingness to learn new concepts.  They are very receptive to the new material they're being taught.  These students show much responsibility in their actions.  As a group, they get along really well with each other.  This quality will benefit them later in life when they play football or other sports for Lorena High School.

Our 5th Grade teachers have a great relationship with this group of students.  Mrs. Browne and Dr. Curtis teach math, Mrs. Kelley, teaches them science, and Mrs. Ordner and Mrs. Biles are their language, social studies, and reading teachers.  We're blessed to have such a strong group of teachers leading this "new" group of learners.

This is the 4th year for most of these 5th graders.  I can honestly say that they like being here at the elementary.  We're going to enjoy their stay here as long as possible.  Let's hope these students take us to greater heights in our academics this year.  

So, all in all, we're blessed to have such a great group of students being taught by teachers who love to teach and are willing to go the extra mile for them.


Our mission is to provide a quality education through shared responsibility in a safe supportive environment for all students to meet the challenges of a global society.
