Elementary Class Celebrates Earth Day

Our students celebrated Earth Day on April 22, by participating in a scavenger hunt. Mrs. Barefoot’s and Mrs. Hutto’s 4th grade class split up into groups as they explored the campus. They stopped by our Ag department, visited with some baby chicks, and shared a sweet Earth Day treat when they were done!
