Miss Pauling and Mrs. Seibert traded in their students for dentists! Together they wrapped up dental health month by integrating dental health into math and reading! The kiddos erased cavities and removed teeth in math. They read about and recreated the parts of the tooth. They also had an egg experiment. This experiment showed how some of our favorite drinks may stain our teeth over time if we don't take care of them. Such a fun day!

Mother Nature may have delayed Winter Wildcat Day by 8 weeks, but it didn't impact our students' enjoyment nor the experience! The day began with the entire school gathered in the Auditorium to witness Mr. Clark receive Regional FFA recognition as a Golden Owl recipient (this will be fully captured in a future post). Following the ceremony, the student body was treated to performances by Jazz Band and Out of the Blue. Upon dismissal from the auditorium, dozens of activities, games, and competitions were set up throughout the building. The halls of Greenwood were alive with laughter and smiles!
