Students were thrilled Wednesday morning when they received a free book from the PTA.  Connie Hansen from the Park PTA organized the event to give each Park Elementary student a book.  Many smiles were shared as students gathered in the library to choose from a variety of picture books, chapter books, fiction and non-fiction books as well.  When students chose their book they had it stamped by a PTA member and the book became theirs to keep.  One student was so excited he exclaimed "I'm gonna keep this forever!

Students in Mrs. Cooper's 6th grade class participated in a fun activity called the The Great Ice Melt.  Students were to create a 6x6 inch box with insulated materials found at home that could keep an ice cube from melting.  This activity is part of Mrs. Cooper's Heat, Light, and Sound science unit and teaches students the concept of insulation.

Winners of the contest are as follows:  Baylee Carter 1st Place, Trevin Harris 2nd Place, and Carson Czarnik 3rd Place.  Congratulations!
