Mrs. Kristie Joiner's fourth graders at Natalbany Elementary adopted Pirate Patty, an endangered sea turtle off the coast of Florida. The students were learning about endangered sea turtles in reading and decided it would be a good idea to help these animals. The students received a certificate of adoption. Also,they are able to track Pirate Patti's progress by reading a map that plots her location on the internet and will receive a newsletter about the sea turtles each month.

On Thursday, November 15th, 47 students from Independence Elementary were treated to a special Thanksgiving dinner. These students were selected by their teachers for following the PBIS expectations and FISH Philosophy daily! Students were able to dress in their Sunday best. Rev. Timothy Richardson and several of his congregation graciously offered to host this event at Faith Temple Ministries. They prepared a wonderful meal with many food items donated by local businesses including The Bar-B-Que Station, Master Chef, and Yum Yum Bakery. IES’s Leadership team and Administration serve the students. This year, members of Southeastern’s Basketball team joined in the celebration, and Library Media Resource teacher, Sheila Willie, dressed as A Turkey for Thanksgiving from the book written by Eve Bunting. At IES there is MUCH to be Thankful for this year!
