Chalk Talk – October 25, 2103

General Myer Elementary School

Nancy Murphy entered art from several classes in the Cochise County Fair School Arts category. The fair was held at the end of September in Douglas. Participants from schools all over Cochise County entered many different art works. All participants won a first (blue), second (red) or third (white) ribbon. All General Myer School entries won a blue ribbon.

Fifth grade winners were Christen McCracken’s class for watercolor still life, and Pam Sherod’s class won for merry-go-round horses.

Fourth grade winners were Lynn Tompkins’ class for lion drawings, and Judy Akers’ class for watercolor still life.

Third grade was represented by Marie Lee for her colorful bird drawings, complete with feathers. Susan Ford’s class won for their watercolor still life, and Lorraine Draeger’s class earned a blue ribbon for lion pictures.

Congratulations to all the winners. The school staff is looking forward to more contests and more General Myer winners.

Audrey Mapoles’ fifth-grade class is exploring the skeletal system and other human body system. They are learning how each system works, and how they work in tandem. To continue research on the skeletal system, the class will take owl pellets and separate out the bones of the animals that are inside the pellet. The students will examine the bones and compare them to the bones in the human body.

Fourth graders at General Myer created a paper and a human chain to show their support for Unity Day to take a stand against bullying.

They also collected donations for the Parent Teacher Organization fund, and the class with the highest donations received a prize. Congratulations to Lynn Tompkins’ class for receiving the most donations. Students continued to collect funds by participating in $1 Hat Day on Oct. 16.

Students in the fourth grade will be learning about fractions and decimals, and then complete a science, technology, engineering and math project incorporating measurement using fractions to create a healthy snack.
