At the beginning of the school year, Rebekah Bruner, on her own, started a group called GGG (Go Green Group).  Together with Brock Heath and Megan Sigler, she designed a presentation for all students in our district to promote recycling awareness.  Rebekah, Brock and Megan have all volunteered many hours giving the presentations and organizing, transporting and sorting recyclables.    We now have storage sheds at both the elementary and high school to store recyclables and the high school now has containers for plastic bottles.  Future plans include getting more school involvement in recycling, promoting community awareness, and possibly getting own recycling bins in Cottonwood. Shown arere is Rebekah Bruner and Megan Sigler talking with the kindergarten at the elementary school.Click on the photo for a larger view.

It took over two and a half hours, but we finally have a chess winner.  Approximately thirty middle school students watched as Lucas Arnzen, left, and Chaye Uptmor, right, challenged each other in a final match at The Hangout.   The game was called after two and a half hours and continued at the middle school the following Tuesday where Chaye captured Lucasís king.  Hunter Chaffee won the fifth grade competition, and Bobby Gillum won the seventh grade competition.  Approximately 60 students participated in Chess Club this year.  Chess Club offers students an opportunity to participate on an individual level and stresses respect for each other.

Seth Guyer, Josh Zigler and Michael Karel, PHS HOSA students, accept a check from Collette Schaeffer, St. Maryís Hospital Mission Committee, to help underwrite the cost of their upcoming trip to the national HOSA competition. See story above left.
