It's a bittersweet thing. The happy glow of the Christmas season paired with the beginning of the end of an era. This week Jeff Pfaffe's class assembled what will be the last Chemistree. Mr. Pfaffe is retiring at the end of this year so the annual tradition in Chemistry class will be coming to an end. Alas, we shall enjoy it while it lasts.

The Middle School English classes are participating in a 40 Book Challenge this year. Students are to read 40 books from various genres throughout the course of the school year. Students are doing a great job utilizing classroom, school and public libraries to help them reach the goal of 40 books in the year. Two students in the middle school have already read beyond 40 books and we are only halfway through the second quarter. Drew Stone has completed 53 books so far this year and isn’t slowing down.
