Shell Knob School Honors Veterans
Every year Shell Knob does something special for Veteran’s Day. This year the boy Scouts opened the ceremonies, while the veterans posted the colors. After posting the colors the Boy Scouts led the assembly in saying the pledge and the band played the National Anthem. Students from Student Council read speeches to help honor the men and women who have fought for our Country. .Second grader Bradyn Hayes read a speech with poise. He is a student who always takes the time to thank a veteran
when he sees one. We could all learn from his example. Taps were played while everyone took a moment of silence to remember the great deeds done by our service men and women. At the end of the ceremonies students, teachers, and staff had a chance to meet and thank each veteran personally.
Every year people take one day to stop and thank the men and women for their sacrifice to us. Maybe we all need to be more like Bradyn Hayes. Thank you to all the veterans that came to the assembly.
Shell Knob Beginner Band Performs at Family Night
At Shell Knob School, fifth grade students change from taking music class to taking band class, At the beginning of the year, they get to try out different instruments. The students try out different instruments to help them decide which instrument to play. After picking an instrument, the practice starts. Thursday, November 7, the beginner band got to play for an audience for the first time. During the fall Family Night and Book Fair the fifth grade students performed for parents, staff, siblings and fellow students. They performed a variety of short pieces at different difficulty level. The students have only had their instruments for about a month. They were very nervous and worried about squeaking. However, they did a wonderful job.
During the evening festivities the middle school band also played several pieces of music. This is an opportunity for students to show their talents. The students showed poise and performed well. Students, parents, staff, and family members got to play guessing games, eat, visit, look at and buy great books. The Family Night and Book Fair were a huge success.
