Everett Much of our time this past week has been spent learning the long and short sound of -i-. Most of us understand and arc coming along nicely. Rickie Keefer celebrated his birthday this past week and treated the class to candy. Thank you Rickie! We are all working to become good readers. The students reading Cherry Street are working especially hard on accuracy. In order to be a good reader however we realize that we must work for accuracy and speed. The fact that 'ten ones' arc equal to 'one ten' is understood by almost every one in the room now. We studied very hard and experimented with many objects to learn this. Art last Friday consisted of paint blot pictures. — Chili, -™ Ir corn - pickc ' r to ico. Our class project map of Mexico is about completed. Also our project booklets on Mexico are about finished. We have had discussions in Social Studies class about the- death 'of Dag Hammarskjohl and the crisis in Berlin.

Future Farmers to Sponsor safety program MAYNARD — The West Ci n- tr.nl chapter of the Future Farm- , 4 «* amai ""^cssary nc- Jim Hai-r^on, president of the- chapter, suggests that you clu-el: to be sure shields and gu.iv.ls a> • ..i place he-fore you begin to op- crate the picker and to always u-car close filling clothing. Gloves with extra thumbs are very dangerous around mechanical equipment. Harrison says "hurry and haste do not fit in witn proper, efficient and safe corn picking". Then he aJtls "shut off the power to fie picker when you leave the tractor si-at and be sure of your f ..ot in.-,' wJi;n ill-mounting for f'llls can result in broken limbs a.i.l losl time." They suggest removing trash and dirt, which accumulates around the hot manifolds and ex- hau :; assembly to avoid fire, carrying a fire extinguisher at all I nic.s, and the use of tractor i-ng- ... • shield-: for fire protection. Gary Brownell, a mpmbyr e.f 111.' chaptt ;• says "take a break, stretch your legs and rest your ear drums occasionally when picking corn" and concludes with "an operator who is cold, stiff and tired is very susceptible to accidents." Seventy FFA members will participate in the safety program, apply safety stickers on farm equipment and leave reminder cards to help prevent accidents. SELL YOUR DON'T WANTS WITH LEADER WANT ADS —Mrs. Swart/ People enjoying classes with High School groups this year are: Phyllis, Marcclla and Donna in We have been busy writing letters for Language class. Many of us needed more work in writing them correctly. In conjunction with this we visited the post c . , „, office. We were mainly impressed ^PCC'al Education — with the cancelling machine and we appreciated Mr. Davis' explaining of the post man's duties. Ed Bradley and Jim Alderson brought fungi to school. Jim showed us a large "powder puff" and Ed some sulfer mushrooms. Cindy Shepard showed us some pressed sawdust used at campsites in Yellowstone Park. In Arithmetic we are working with 2 and 3 division and story problems. A quiz on our basic seven foods consist of our health studies. French and Dutch explorers are the topics of discussion in Social Studies. For Art we are making fire prevention postures. Fifth Grade — —Mrs. Downing's section The fifth grade enjoyed movies about Daniel Boone and early colonial homes this week during Social Studies class. We have completed our study of Daniel. Boone and are beginning the study of the Louisiana Purchase. We have learned to spell the names of the thirteen colonies for our extra words in spelling. We didn't have .as many perfect spelling papers last week. Several of us missed only one word. That word was "chief." Our Beading workbooks arrived this week. We are working hard on the phonetic skills listed in these books.' We completed our Farm unit in Science class today. John Orr .brought some farm plants for us to see. During the period that we discussed the water systems, Mrs. Downing read a report about our Fayette water system, also about the sewage disposal system. Our new Language unit discusses Hobbies. Pam brought her coin collection to show to us. Richard brought his collection of miniature dinosaurs. We hope to plan one day next week for all of us to bring our collections. We are still working on our multiplication tables. Many of us know them very well, while a few of us need to have much more drill on them. We will be starting to multiply with two place numbers next week so we will have to know our times tables then. FAYETTE THEATRE Sixth Grade — —by Eileen Bonjour In spelling last week we had 17 people that had A's. This week we had 11 people who got A's. That means quite a few of us have got to study harder. In Social Studies we have finished chapter two and are ready to start chapter three. We have, been studying about "'How the Greeks Gave Us Democracy, Love of Beauty, and Freedom of Mind." Also we found out how life in Athens is different from life in Sparta. We found out all about the Gods and Godesses and many of us made reports on them. Wednesday in Art we made color resist pictures. To do this we used a piece of dark construction paper and took light colors and colored hard so the little pores in the paper would be filled up. After that we took black tempra paint and painted over the paper. Many of us were surprised when the tempra slid right off the wax. All of us think that the pictures turned out very nice. Seventh Grade — —by Merllne Brauae In Spelling this week the girls . were very pleased. The reason was because there was a spelling *,.-*a-bee .between toe girl* And the* l&boys.
