All About the School

The students are doing great work. The teachers are doing their jobs and teaching us well. We have great news that there are three new kids: Kayla Gilbert, Marley Kinder and last and youngest, Cody Kinder.

I think they’re having a great time.


On Thursday, Nov. 28, LLH Elementary School had two presentations. One was about surviving when you’re lost in the woods. You must tell your parents always when you’re going somewhere. It’s called Hug a Tree and Survive.

The second one was Virginia Bowman, a nurse, coming in and talking about germs on your hands and, when you sneeze, you should always wash your hands to prevent getting germs. If you don’t, you’ll get sick. She brought in some fake germs and a black light. We put the fake germs on our hands.

You couldn’t see the germs without the light but when we put the black light on it the germs were all over. Then we all washed our hands to see how well we got the germs off, now we have clean hands. That was our Free Press school news hope you enjoyed reading it.
