Crockett Elementary Book Munchers have been meeting with Mrs. Patricia Wells, RTI Campus Coordinator, at lunchtime every week for the last few weeks reading and discussing two very good books. The fourth grade Book Munchers read Inside Out & Back Again, by Thanhha Lai. This story is about a young girl named Ha who moves to the United States from Vietnam during the Vietnam war. Ha ends up in Alabama and discovers that life in the United States can be very difficult, especially learning the language. Fourth grade Book Munchers for this session included: Sebastian Garcia, Ashton Garcia, Elias Diaz, Gavriella Garcia, Alice Burney, Mindy Johnson, and Madison Ogans. The third grade Book Munchers read, Buddy, by M. H. Herlong. This story is about a three-legged, scruffy dog named Buddy and a little twelve-year-old boy named Li’l T. Buddy and Li’l T become separated during Hurricane Katrina. After many months of searching, Li’l T finds Buddy clear across the country in California. Buddy had been rescued by a loving family and became a valued service dog for a young boy with a disability. Li’l T struggles to decide whether to take Buddy home or leave him with Brian. Third grade Book Munchers for this session included: Braleigh Powers, Taraji Williams, Ryan Smith, Cheyanne Lantz, Carol Chacon, Easton Bryan, Phoebe Cordell, Alexa Gaytan, Olivia Bradley, and Angel Segovia. Book Munchers encourages you to check out these books. You won’t be disappointed.

Gateway Elementary’s latest service learning project was a Penny War Challenge to raise money for the Rainbow Room. Students brought pennies to put in classroom containers for their class. Through the generosity of students, staff, and families, $752.37 was collected! Mrs. Forrest’s class had the most pennies collected. They are shown here with Ms. Bodey and Mrs. Morado.

 Every year Crockett participates in The Rainbow Room Christmas Project.  The Rainbow Room is an organization in Borger that helps to meet the needs of children who are taken out of their homes and placed in foster care.  At Christmas, people/businesses/organizations “adopt” foster children and help to provide them with items on their Christmas list, including clothes and shoes.  Crockett uses this opportunity to teach their students about the importance of community.  They tie this project in with their Pillars of Character including responsibility, caring, and citizenship.   They also take this opportunity to teach scholars about the importance of having compassion for others.  A large container is set up in front of the office and students can drop in change.  Donations are taken on a volunteer basis and done truly in the spirit of giving.  This year over $230 was raised by students.     Shown with some of the items purchased for the foster children are:  Left to right:  Justin Sisneros, Drake Akens, Trinity Barnhart, and Kace Rincon
