Hurrah for Morgan Mill!

If you have kids in your household, you will want to take advantage of the Morgan Mill School Peppermint Pig Book Fair Sept.30 - Oct. 3. All of the profits will go to support our fabulous reading program in MM. Sandra Pierce would like for you to look over the “wish list.” Be sure to add $ .10 for every dollar you spend. This has always been a good fundraiser for the reading incentives and award program.

Looking ahead, on Thursday, Oct. 17, the kids will travel to Tarleton to see the Young People Series, “James and the Giant Peach.” The story comes hilariously to life in this delightful dramatization that reveals the wickedness of some, the goodness of others, and the indecision encountered by many when they are faced with crises. This is a great way to introduce drama to our kids. If you want to go see it, you will have to wait until Saturday, Oct. 19.

The MM food drive will end on the 30th. If you still have canned goods that you want to contribute, bring them to the school this week. Thanks for all of your participation. The food pantry is open every Wednesday from 3:30-5:30 at the BCS building on the Methodists Church parking lot.

There are between 30 to 50 Tarleton students observing at Morgan Mill School this fall. These students, not only observe, but get real hands on experience in our classrooms. Mrs. Kimple, Mrs. Lingle, and Mrs. Mashburn are on the list to have student teachers in the spring. Coach Hutchinson is glad to have the “Texan Partners” from Tarleton helping with athletics. Morgan Mill is a great place for these prospective teachers to “learn the ropes.”

Keep Oct. 15 open for the MM School Carnival. There are always a lot of auction items for the adults and events for the kids to have fun.

The cheerleaders for this year are Cece Cline and Adriana Moreno eighth graders, Aly Kimple and Grace Rogers seventh graders, and Kelci Landes and Makenzi Percivill sixth graders. Everybody was excited to beat Throckmorton in football. They will be playing at Lingleville on Oct. 3.

It is not too early to put the firefighters auction on your calendar for Saturday, Nov. 2. It will be the traditional pie and cake auction with barbecue and beans.
