The Parent Teacher Club Dinner and Silent/Live Auction was well attended. The Borba family served a great tasting steak dinner. There were many silent auction items to bid on and also raffle prizes. The live auction featured items from each classroom. The Kindergarten class had a rocking Adirondack chair personalized with fingerprint hungry caterpillars. The First Grade project was a picture with each child’s designed and painted birds using watercolors. They also created a self-portrait coffee table book. The Second Grade burned their names and handprints into a picnic table. The third Grade students cut and assembled two Adirondack chairs under the direction of Bob Mueller. They drilled, hammered, and cut and learned how to use many tools. A photo album was included. Fourth Graders made six mirrors surrounded by glass tiles to hang inside or out. The Fifth Grade sanded, primed and painted benches and added famous quotes and their names. The Sixth Grade project was a western custom table with hinged top. Seventh Graders made tiles to decorate a hand made oak table (made by Randy Russell) and placed a time capsule inside. The Eighth Grade burned their names on the back of a picture frame surrounding a beautiful picture of the Covered Bridge. Congratulations to Tasha Sweet, Chairperson, and her committee for a great night!
