Two Hoots and A Holler: We Salute Fall and our Veterans!

Hoot #1
This week we had fun with scarecrows! We discussed how scarecrows actually got their name. Then we thought of things that scared us. After doing some brain storming, the students found a cozy place to write.  Each student wrote about something that scared them! Finally, they created their scarecrow!

This Jitterbug wrote, "I am scared when I see Mrs. Jodi." I love it!! Needless to say, I couldn't wait to run over and show Mrs. Jodi!
Hoot #2
We had our annual Veteran's Day Program. This is such a special event for us each year. This year, we made soldiers that told our Veterans how thankful that we were for them. These hung in the building where we served lunch to the Veterans.

 The following are pictures of our program and some of the beautiful decorations.

 These American flag hearts were made by the Rockstars to help decorate for Veteran's Day. 

Thank you to all of our military, past and present, for serving our country.  Thank you for protecting us and keeping us safe! You work does NOT go unnoticed!!
