PLE Celebrates Breast Cancer Awareness with Kindergarten Balloon Release

On October 4th, Mrs. Alexander's Kindergarten class had a balloon release to kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The students were taught the importance of regular doctor visits and staying healthy. The students were all provided a balloon to release. Attached to the balloon was a yellow tag with the school's information and email addresses. The class has already had two phone calls of balloons found! One balloon was found north of Lumberton on the edge of a cow field and one balloon was found on the side of the road in Baxterville! The students have been tracking the mileage and looking up the locations on google Earth and google maps! What an exciting time in Kindergarten!

To Infinity…. & Beyond!

Mrs. Holly Johnson’s 2nd Grade Quest students had a blast at the Infinity Science Center at Stennis Space Center. This trip was a culminating experience that allowed the students to explore and witness amazing elements about our solar system. We have just completed a Mission Space unit and the students were excited to take all of their knowledge and use it at the Infinity Center. We talked to scientists and astronauts who work with NASA and saw first-hand what it would be like to go into space. We had a wonderful time making lasting memories.

The Case of the Missing Storybook Characters

Students and teachers at PLE have been on a scavenger hunt looking for storybook characters that were kidnapped from the library! Each book character had a reward that could be claimed when found. Rewards ranged from a gift card from Outback Steakhouse to a $200 gift certificate for the Book Fair that starts next week. It only took three hours for all six characters to be found. Because of the excitement from everyone, the library will be sponsoring another scavenger hunt in the near future. Congratulations to Cindy Sutfin, Teresa Farmer, Ava Burge, Julianna Lieb, Lisa Bagley, and Jennifer Theriot who found a storybook character and claimed their reward!

2nd Grade Social Studies & Science Fun!

Who says learning Social Studies and Science can't be fun? Mrs. Morgan Smith's 2nd grade class is learning all about Native Americans, American History, and Life Science. These two subjects are being taught through the new reading curriculum and students love it! Six of our students placed in the county fair with our porcupine projects! We learned about their habitat and how they protect themselves. We also studied habitats and life cycles of other animals.


In History students learned about George Washington and Betsy Ross and even had a chance to make their own flag and write why they love their flag. During our Native American unit students learned about the different resources they used and how they lived off of the land. Some of our students used their creativity at recess to create some of their homes. I am so proud of our class and I am excited to see them continue to grow!

Students in Ms. Julianna's class have been busy bees. They are learning letters, numbers, and shapes using multi-sensory activities. Matthew Hariel is pictured writing the letter "C" in sand. This engaging activity allows the students to learn how to form the letters through a tactile experience.
