The fifth and sixth grade science classes used their knowledge of the scientific method to create a science fair project of their choosing. After spending some time researching their topic, students put their knowledge into a presentation and then presented their findings to the younger elementary classes.

Over the past few weeks, students in Mrs. Sleeper's class have been working on animal research papers. They picked an animal, researched it on their chromebooks, and took notes over their animals. They then turned that information into a research paper and made it into a poster to display in the hallway. GR8 job, students!

The team is in their final week of preparation before the big tournament at Clinton Country Club. Go TIGERS!
The Tigers lost a good game against Sacred Heart last night, 20-10. Offensively, the Tigers were led by Landon Mason who hit a home run and scored two runs. The Tiger offense came alive with a season's best 10 runs, and have shown improvement as the season has progressed. Austin Warner and Mason Ferrel pitched very well over their 5 innings of work. Some ill-timed fielding and baserunning mistakes were the biggest differences in the game. We are proud of our TIGERS!
