Hurrah for Morgan Mill!

It is the time of the school year to talk to our kindergartners. There are nine enrolled in Morgan Mill. ome of their responses are; Taygon Yarbrough thinks that the hardest thing in kindergarten is coloring, the easiest thing is riding on the “ferris wheel.”

“Be nice to others and always be respectful” are the two rules that he remembers. Olivia Young thinks that the hardest thing that she does is cut with scissors and color. Her favorite color is purple and the assignment that she was working on was on the color purple. Her rule that she remembered was “don’t poke”. “Keep your hands to yourself” was a popular rule for all of the kids. Olivia wanted to let everyone know that she had made a “100” on her “things that start with a ‘C’”. Olivia’s favorite thing to do is the merry go round.

Blakley Bottelberghe is having a hard time being good and listening, but he was proud that he had not had his stick turned over. Blakley remembers the rule about keeping objects to yourself and his favorite time at school is recess. Lucas Roberson had a hard time coloring a caterpillar. He said that he had a hard time staying “in the lines.” His easiest thing was to cut squares. His hardest thing to cut was circles. Recess is his favorite class. KC Moore thinks that the hardest thing is to clean up. He also likes recess. His rule was “to be nice.” We can always learn something from our five year olds.

One of our newest teachers is Kourtney Redstrom, fourth grade teacher. She is from Hamilton and attended Tarleton. She was a student teacher last year in Morgan Mill under Mrs. Mashburn and Mrs. Kimple She loved MM last year and spent the summer getting prepared for her first year in Morgan Mill. She was a Tarleton cheerleader and is now leading our MM cheerleaders. Her major at Tarleton was interdisciplinary studies with an emphasis from preK to 6th grade. She also holds an ESL certification. Kourtney loves teaching and we are fortunate in getting her to teach in MM. Did I mention that she is single?
