Elementary students were into science this past week. In the top photo Cole Frei and Lauren Stubbers, first graders in Cindy Schumacher's class, are shown holding the two jars that contain the larvae of Painted Lady Butterflies. In the middle photo Mrs. Riggers’ second grade class is shown with their mounted Monarch butterflies. In the bottom photo Mykaela McWilliams shows the complete mouse skull she found in an owl pellet. The Elementary School will be holding a Science Fair on May 3.

Pictured are Marcus Higgins, left, Levi Lustig and Kody Duclos holding their certificates and the money they won for placing in the Idaho County Farm Bureau Essay Contest. The theme was "Looking to the Future of Idaho
Agriculture." All three students are 5th graders at Prairie Middle School. Mrs. Jessica Vanderwall is their teacher.  For writing the winning essay, Kody, son of Mike and Tara Duclos, Ferdinand, received $50. Levi, son of Doug and Karen Lustig, Cottonwood, 2nd place winner, received $20, and Marcus Higgins, son of Brad and Cindy Higgins, Greencreek, placing 3rd, also received $20. These three essays are being sent to Idaho Farm Bureau, Pocatello, for competition in the District and in the State.

The 8th grade math classes designed math games for each of the elementary grades. They learned what it takes to be a graphic designer by creating a theme and producing a game board around given mathematical concepts. They will deliver their games and play them with the kids in each class. We have some great designers maybe someday some of them will work for Parker Brothers and make new monopoly games for us to play!! Shown are Eli Rad, Dustin Schaeffer, Jake Seubert, Tyrell Langston and Jeremy Ross who developed a farming themed game. 

Hope Vanator tries to catch as much as she can in the money booth last Friday. Top chocolate sellers received time in the booth as a reward.  

Alica Holthaus’ class is shown counting down to the exact time of 01:02:03 on 04/05/06. They didn’t think that they would want to wait around to do it again the next time that happens 100 years from now.
