Two Hoots and A Holler

Hoot #1

It has been a very busy week in the Delta! Our day began with  our Fun Run! The students and staff had a blast. and we were able to raise money for new P.E. equipment. All of our kinders ran 35 laps around the gym (We had to do it in our gym due to weather). It may seem like a lot, but during some laps they do dance moves and other fun things to keep the children going. The people with the Fun Run created a tunnel for the students to run through. They even had their own D.J. How cool is that!?!?
If your looking for a fundraiser to do, this may be what your looking for!
 Here we go!!
 Conner was so proud! He was our flag holder for the event.
 Mrs. Amy decided to join in the fun!
 All of the Jitterbugs ran through the tunnel with their hands in the air!
 I couldn't be prouder of this group of kids! I am already dreading that they will be leaving me soon. This is the class that makes you want to just go with them to First Grade. If you have been a teacher for any amount of time, I know you feel my pain. A piece of my heart is definitely in the above picture.
The Rockstars are ready to RUN and have some FUN!

The Rockstars and their silly faces!  We had a blast doing this!  
Go Gators!

Hoot #2
When we finished our Fun Run, we had another surprise for our Jitterbugs and Rockstars!  Eddlemon Farms came to bring us our eggs for our incubator!! We are now the proud "Mother Hens" for 24 eggs!! The students were so excited!

Mrs. Daphne Eddlemon also another special surprise..

 4 Jersey Giants! These little cuties are 5 days old. 
These kind of chickens can grow to be as big as a dog!!

 How precious is this little one! He was my friend. I was able to hole him while Mrs. Daphne talked to the students about the eggs and the process of incubation. The students loved getting to pet each one! 

 They may have loved that the chick used the bathroom in my hands a little more!!! I was just impressed with myself that I didn't drop him!

 Day 1! The eggs have arrived! A BIG thank you to Eddlemon Farms for lending us their eggs.
Another big thank you goes out to Jaci, Jadyn and Brody Eddlemon for taking the chicks around for our students to pet!
 Not only did they let the Jitterbugs and the Rockstars see the baby chicks, they let half the school pet them!! The students were so excited! We have never had chicks at our schools before!

This Week's Holler...
We are hollering this week to Eddlemon Farms for helping us out with hatching chicks!  We are so blessed to have someone in our community willing to help us and our students learn all about chickens!  Next year, we are already planning on visiting their chicken farm before we get the eggs.  Daphne has been very helpful with answering any and all of our questions!  She has done so much to help our classes be successful in hatching these eggs!  Once they hatch, the chickens will go back to Eddlemon Farms to grow up!  This is such an awesome experience for us and our students!  We think this may become a yearly tradition!!  Thanks again to Eddlemon Farms and the Eddlemon Family!!
