This year a Student of the Week will feature students. Each student will be interviewed about what’s important to him or her at home or at school.
Ty Spraggins is in the 11th grade and is 17 years old: “I went to Leggett School for seven years and I have two brothers and two sisters. This summer I hung out with friends and went swimming in the river. I like rap and rock music. I went to see Tech Nine and he was really cool. I also like Eminem. I like playing basketball, video games, and paintball. I am getting ready to move to Corona in Southern California. I will miss all my friends and the peace and quiet of Leggett. I look forward to meeting new friends and having more things to do when I am not in school.”
Noelle Losee is in the 2nd grade: “I have two brothers, 14 and 9. I have always lived in Leggett. At night I like to read. I go to sleep at eight. My favorite book is about Jonah. I don’t remember the title. I also like to watch movies. My favorite thing to do with my whole family at night is to play games. We play Apples to Apples. There is red apple cards and green apple cards. You have to figure out the words that are closest to the words on red apple cards. The winner has the most green apple cards. I also have a dog-named Betty. She’s a good friend, but she ran away and I haven’t seen her for six months.”
Back to School Night is on Thursday, Sept. 20 and there will be a number of events happening in conjunction with parents visiting their student’s class. The junior high will be having a car wash, will be selling snow cones, and having a pizza dinner to fundraiser for their class trip this year. The car wash will start at 3:30 p.m. and the dinner will begin at 5 p.m. Any support would be appreciated.
Pictures for all grade levels will be taken Friday, Sept. 21 Order forms will be given out soon through classes.
Thanks to the Leggett Valley Booster Club the cooking class (taught by Cheryl Hansen) will include a garden/nutrition component. This year students will cook with all the produce harvested from the school garden. They are hoping to go on two field trips during the year.
The class is open to 7-12th graders. Students will come out of the class with culinary skills that could lead to a job. Cheryl Hansen is also a dessert chef.
Michelle Kelley is a teacher at Leggett Valley School.
