A Merry Christmas from the 6th Grade

The 6th grade students, accompanied by Mrs. Angie, Mrs. DeShazo, and Ms. Wallis, went Christmas Caroling on Thursday, December 16.  The students began caroling around Fair Park Acres, stopping at houses along the way and singing.  They finally made their way to the Imboden Community Center where they sang carols to the senior citizens.  Despite the cold weather, the students and teachers had a wonderful time!!!  A special thank you to Butch Dail and Eddie Grimsley for driving the trucks and trailers.

The three kindergarten classes loved the Imboden Christmas Parade! The three classes, Mrs. Hickman's, Mrs. Adams', and Mrs. Yarbro's classes, had a float in the parade. The float was titled "All I Want for Christmas is my Two Front Teeth". The children wore teeth costumes and Santa hats and sang to Alvin and the Chipmunks, All I Want for Christmas is my Two Front Teeth. The kids had a blast and loved passing out candy. We would like to say a big thank you to all of the parents who donated supplies and their time docorating the float! Also, a special thank you to RIcky and Jennifer Grisham for letting us borrow their trailer and for driving the float!
