Mrs. Patty Johnson's sixth grade class performs "The Cat in the Hat" for Iron Springs Elementary first grade classes.
Cedar Middle School
Mrs. Patty Johnson's Sixth grade class performed the play "The Cat in the Hat" for Dr. Seuss's 113th Birthday. They have done this service project for the past 15 years. It is in conjunction with Read Across America. A reading contest was held for the First Grades at Iron Springs Elementary to see who could read the most Dr. Seuss books. They then had Dr. Seuss characters and fifteen books parade into each room, and gave bookmarks and hats to the winners. Mrs. Johnson’s class performed their play "The Cat In The Hat" for the whole student body. Mrs. Johnson says her students are rock stars in that they only had three weeks to practice and perform!

Students checking out books at the South Elementary Library.
The South Elementary library is a favorite place for students to go with their classes each week. Mrs. Courtney Stucki is the school's librarian and has created an organized, happy environment where students can find books in many genres. The students enjoy story time with Mrs. Stucki and then check out books to read at home for the week. The teachers appreciate, Mrs. Stucki's, willingness to help them find DVDs as well as books to go along with the units they are teaching. Mrs. Stucki does a great job at making the school library a place for the students to learn and appreciate books and reading.
