Preschool gets a visit from Santa Claus

The preschool students were pleasantly surprised today when Santa Claus arrived handing out gifts. The boys were wild over their toy cars, while the girls loved their baby dolls. Some of the students sang Christmas songs to Santa. Santa even sang along with them. It was a wonderful way to start the Christmas vacation.

Mr. Bill visits 2nd grade

On Monday, Dec. 14th, Mr. Bill from the TN Aquarium visited 2nd grade to talk about his "Creepy, Crawly" friends.

Mr. Bill let the students touch the snake and three of the student's even got to let the millipede crawl across their hands! What a fun and exciting day!!
