BROWN ELEMENTARY IS "ON A ROLL"
On February 28, the Gus Winston Cain Chapter of the National Elementary Honor Society inducted 38 fourth and fifth graders.
Along with other chapters in schools across the nations, the Gus W. Cain Chapter strives to give practical meaning to the Society’s standards of scholarship, responsibility, service, and leadership. No student becomes a member simply because of good grades. The National Elementary Honor Society recognizes the total student- one who excels in all of these areas. The standards used for selection were the following: Scholarship- 93% or better cumulative average for two semesters and Responsibility, Service and Leadership- as demonstrated by activities at home, at school, and in the community.
STANTON-SMITH STUDENTS DROP EVERYTHING AND READ
Stanton-Smith students celebrated Dr. Seuss’s birthday and Read Across America by dropping everything to read. Judging by the smiles, the students and teachers loved taking a break from their regular studies for DEAR time (Drop Everything And Read).
GIFTED AND TALENTED STUDENTS HOST FILM FESTIVALS
Brown, Cain, Higgins and Stanton-Smith gifted and talented students hosted their first ever Film Festival which was a culmination of their “Lights, Camera, Action!” study. Students produced their own movies which involved, script writing, acting, filming, directing, designing scenes and props, editing video and audio clips, promoting their movie and creating sound effects. Families were invited to a movie premiere night at each elementary campus where the G/T students served refreshments (Coke and popcorn of course!), signed autographs and encouraged fans to take pictures with the “stars” from the films at the photo booth. All four Film Festivals were huge hits! Watch out Hollywood – Whitehouse has some talent!
