Thanksgiving Feast

We had a delicious Thanksgiving "Feast" in our room the day we got out of school for the holidays! We had delicious chicken strips, fresh fruit, cheetos, and mini cupcakes! Don't you know that is exactly what the Pilgrims and Indians had to eat the first Thanksgiving! Oh well! We enjoyed it! I hope everyone had a great vacation and are looking forward to the most special time of the year.

Election Day🇺🇸

Tuesday was a special day for us at PDS. We got to "vote" for a presidential candidate. We signed our names and put an x in the box of our choice. It was great practice for our responsibility as future Americans! Thanks for the opportunity!

What a great time we had last month at the Hoedown! Everyone did a great job dancing, and I think they even enjoyed themselves! Thanks to Mrs. Jackson for getting it all together and having faith in us! The bar-b-que was pretty good, too!


We are having a great time every morning using our new Smart Boards to help us with our morning activities. We use them to do the daily calendar, the weather, and the days in school. The children love moving things around on the big screen. Thanks PTF for this great addition to our room!

Delta State Athletes

We have had the privilege each Friday to have Delta State athletes come and read to us. We have had baseball and softball players come already this year, and we are looking forward to many others as the year goes on. Thank you to the athletic department at DSU for letting these athletes spend some time with our children. They have really enjoyed it.

Shapes, Shapes, and More Shapes

We have had a really great week learning about our 4 basic shapes. We learned to read the words. We made cereal shapes, and we made a shape quilt. We also found lots of different shapes in our room and drew pictures of these things. Next week we will look at these shapes in 3D!

Back to School!

It's been a busy 8 days in the Eagle's Nest! We have learned lots of new things already! We've talked about new rules, for our classroom and the playground, especially since we are on the "big" playground! We have been using our Smartboard, and it is a lot of fun. We've had 2 great Fridays in chapel, and did a great job on our Bible verse. We are settling in and looking forward to a great year! 
Don't forget Open House is Tueaday at 6:00!

Field Trip Fun!

Last Friday 5K took a field trip to the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science in Jackson. It was great fun and we saw a lot of neat stuff. There were dinosaur skeletons, saltwater fish, and a two headed snake! We got to pet a baby alligator, a baby turtle, and a snake!  We took a hike on a nature trail, and then ate our picnic lunches. After that we got to play on a really huge and fun playground. I think everyone was tired after all the excitement and took a nap on the way home!
We are getting close to the end of school! Can you believe it? We will begin practicing for our end of the year program that will be on May 19th in the PDS gym.
Next week is Spirit Week, and it is always a lot of fun. We get to dress up on something different every day, and on Friday we get to wear our new May Day Play Day t-shirts and play some fun games at the Delta State football practice field. It's a lot of fun. Be sure to join us!

Holy Week and Lots of Bonnets!

Holy Week at PDS is one of the most special times during the school year. Last week was no exception! We celebrated the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ through song, and different speakers. Each speaker told a different story of the the events of the week leading up to the crucifixion. We were extremely blessed with former PDS students sharing their musical talents with us, too. What a great place to be this time of year!
On Thursday we had our annual Easter Bonnet parade and egg hunt. Egg hunting was cut a little short due to the rain, so we played "musical eggs" in the cafeteria. A little different twist, but everyone went home with at least 6 eggs, and they were all happy! We hope everyone had a great Easter weekend!

A Very Busy February!

We have had a lot going on in 5K this month! We had a wonderful Valentine party. We ate a lot of good food, played some games, and won some prizes. The party planners were a hit!
We spent a week talking about Dental Hygiene, and Mitzi Garret, who is a dental hygienist for Dr. Lance Johnson, came and talked to us about taking care of our teeth. She brought a bag of goodies to help us keep our teeth strong and healthy.
We've also had several Delta State athletes come and read to us on Friday mornings. The kids love this, and we would like to thank the athletic department for allowing to spend part of their Friday morning with us. 
Next month is going to be extremely busy, too. We have Spring Break and Easter holidays to look forward to. We also are going to work on our project for the on line auction!

100 Days Smarter!

Can you believe we have been in school for 100 days! Time has really flown by, and we celebrated with several fun counting games and writing our numbers to 100. Now that we have reached 100, there are only 77 days of school left! I can hardly believe it.
