Visiting Fort Chiswell Safari Park
nd
rd
The 2 and 3 grades went to
the Fort Chiswell Safari Park on
th
April 24 . It was a little chilly but
a great time was had by all. We
enjoyed
seeing
Puff
and
Humphries, two of the camels
that live there. We also saw a
wallaby and her joey tucked
away in her pouch. The children
were able to feed some of the animals which included
camels, zebras, an American bison named Cody, antelopes,
wildebeest and many more. We enjoyed a picnic lunch on
the bus (too cold to eat outside).
th
On Friday, April 17 we held our annual Race for Education
fundraiser. Students raised a record breaking $6,254.23. We
started our day (in our Race for Education t-shirts) by walking
20 laps around the campus, which is the equivalent of about 3
miles. Kindergarten and First Grade were allowed to take a
detour through the course, but most wanted to do the "big
course," with the rest of the student body. The top fundraiser
in grades K-5 was Grace Meredith with a total of $550 and in
grades 6th-12th was Alyssa Pennington with a total of $411.50.
Both were awarded a $100 Visa gift card for their hard work!
We also awarded the top fundraiser in each class with the
ability to pie their teacher in the face. Winners were Anna
st
nd
White-Kindergarten, Trey Gilmer-1 , Grace Meredith-2 ,

th
Payton Dunbar-3 , Medariah Richardson-4 , Ryan Urban-5 ,

Alyssa Pennington-6 , Brennen Davis-7 , and Mikhail Mann
and Ellowyn Steele-High School. The Lord blessed us with a
beautiful day and an abundance of fun! Thank you to all who
supported our fundraiser. It was a HUGE success! 
DON’T FORGET!
Teacher appreciation day is Friday, May 8th.
A BIG THANK YOU to Mr. Frank Longrie for driving the bus
and to our chaperones Wanda Songer, Kelly Steele and Trent
and Byron Hurley. 
Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) For I know the plans I have for
you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and
not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a
future.
