The PTA challenged the studentbody to raise money for the school by promising to have Mr. Pitcher kiss a pig if the goal was reached. Not only was the goal reached, but it was exceeded! Maybe that is why Mr. Pitcher got to kiss two pigs. Way to go students and parents, and way to be a good sport, Mr. Pitcher. We thank our PTA officers for doing so much for us and for not making Mr. Pitcher do anything they would not do themselves!
Before Spring Break, the Kindergartners participated in the 11th annual Humpty Dumpty Egg Drop. Families brainstormed and executed ideas for protective devices for their boiled eggs and then Mr. Pitcher put the devices to the test. The plan was for the eggs to be dropped from the roof of the school. Due to slippery roof consitions, the eggs were dropped from a ladder in the gym. Some eggs cracked and others survived. Whichever the case, it was fun to see the creative ideas that families came up with for protecting their Dumpties.
