Dads and donuts had dads and their children enjoying Krispy Kreme donuts while shopping. Moms also had a special shopping time with their children at Moms and muffins. The theme for the fall fair was Here’s to our Heroes. A special hero, Deputy Anthony Jones of the Tulsa County Sheriffs depart came and read to the students. He also came one evening in his Marine uniform.
What’s the best thing to bring to school? Why it’s DAD! Cedar Ridge Kindergarten celebrated their annual Dad’s Day on Tuesday, October 19! Last week, the students worked hard preparing and making things for their dads. They shared donuts and juice, took dad on a tour of the school and listened to dad read to them. The rainy weather put a damper on the much anticipated Tug-o-war competition, but instead the hall was filled with kids cuddled up with Dad!
Parents and students at Peters Elementary School on Monday enjoyed "A Salute to Broadway" directed by music teacher Sharon Beam featuring spry performances from third, fourth and fifth graders singing classic songs from "Grease" and "Oklahoma."
