bareOur school Christmas tree is looking a little bare this year so we are hoping to get some help trimming it.  Students are invited to bring in one homemade or store bought ornament to display on our Christmas tree.  Please keep in mind that ornaments will not be returned.  Only one ornament per child.  We are excited to see our bare tree turn into a magical decorated tree by our students.

jukeboxOur music teacher, Mrs. Myhre, and Shoshone Elementary kindergarten through fifth grade students would like to invite family and friends to their holiday Christmas program, “Jingle Bell Jukebox”, to be held on Wednesday, December 11th, at 6:30 p.m. in the gymnasium.

Halloween Parade 2019 28We enjoyed all the creepy, creative, funny, and original Halloween costumes this year.  Students enjoyed parading through the middle school and high school halls in their costumes.  It was very hard for our team of six judges to pick winners for each of the categories.  

Pumpkin Pete, Guess my weight contestMrs. Huyser donated the pumpkin and Dustyn Hulse (2nd grade student) designed his face.  Students were asked to guess the weight of Pete.  The student that came closest in each grade level received a Halloween prize. "Pete the Pumpkin's" actual weight was 86 1/2 pounds.  Good job, students!

potato winnerWe would like to thank all our students and families that participated in our potato decorating contest that was held last week.  We had an outstanding 168 entries. The judges had a very difficult time choosing the winning potatoes.  Each winning entry received $5.  All students that participated received a small treat. 

schoolhoursMany of our students ride a bus to school and arrive prior to 8:00 a.m. These students are required to go outside (weather permitting) until the 7:50 a.m. bell rings.
