The junior high played music bingo as a surprise celebration for everyone who had As, Bs, and Cs.
Partnership in Parenting gathered for their November group to celebrate reading and Thanksgiving. The theme was "Turkey Tales and Tails," so they read a rhyming tale, "Five Silly Turkeys" by Salina Yoon. Then, they made turkey tails by using markers to color coffee filters and attaching them to clothes pins. Families worked together to add eyes, beaks and wattles for the turkeys' faces. For snack, the children used their small muscle skills to smash graham crackers into crumbs and smoosh pudding and pumpkin together to make Pumpkin Pie in a Bag. Each child chose a turkey book to take home, and one lucky family won a real turkey to gobble up on Thanksgiving Day! Several PIP-Squeaks and their families were home sick, so they were sent healthy wishes for quick recoveries.
The 2023-2024 season kicked off last night with the Turkey Tourney - let’s show our pride by wearing a different color each night. Tonight is ORANGE and Wednesday will be BLUE! Come out and support the New Tri-County Titans as we face the Martinsville Bluestreaks!
