After learning about different types of landforms and erosion, Mrs. Milner and her 1st Grade Science got their hands dirty! They witnessed a mudslide due to "rainfall" and "ocean waves" that ate away at the coast until they toppled a lighthouse. Returning to the classroom, they modeled different types of landforms with clay, let it dry, then painted them. Check out our Facebook page for more photos!

After completing a unit on drawing and shading, the Strawn ISD Art students took to the field to draw some of our ag animals in action. Students were "sheepish" in the beginning to take on such a project, but quickly "goat"-ed each other in completing this fun activity. You might say a few students even found themselves in "hog heaven".

To continue our National Yearbook Week, we're pairing with Strawn 4-H to help grow the Photography department. Students in grades 3-12 can participate in the 4-H Photography Contest(s) without traveling to shows, so it's easy and doesn't require too much of your free time! Do you love taking pictures? Do you see the world from a different perspective than most? Do little things catch your eye? Did you want to be in Yearbook but are too young or can't fit it in your schedule? Meet with Mrs. Ellis for tips, guidelines, and more information about Photography! 4-H Membership is $25 during the month of October, so sign up now before it goes up! If the $25 is preventing you from participating, please talk to us! We may be able to help.
