It all started with a fun trip to Gritt’s Farm recently for Beale Elementary students and staff.
The school’s partners in education, Letart Sand and Gravel, paid for all the students to go on this trip. Several parents also made the trip.
The school has started a new program titled Positive Behavior Intervention Strategy. This PBIS program promotes positivity among the students. All the students were recently treated to an outside dance for a reward. Kevin Nott of WBYG played music for the students.
Then last Friday, the school had a Fall Family Fun Day organized by Title I teachers here at the school. Families and students, kindergarten through 6th grade, came together and participated in the many activities that were set up.
There was pumpkin rolling, pumpkin hockey, leaf print crafts, pumpkin tic-tac-toe, fall rock painting, pumpkin bowling, pumpkin ring toss, candy corn catapults, candy corn pictures and a hanging apple game in the school’s gazebo. There were free books provided by West Virginia Read Aloud, American Electric Power brought a bucket truck, Amherst brought dock ropes, ICL and Ohio Valley Bank provided prizes for the students.
Marshall University Nutrition Program provided flavored waters for the students, Wild About Smiles provided toothbrushes and Warnick and Semder provided toothpaste. Letart Sand and Gravel provided the rocks for students to paint, Dollar General provided stickers, McDonalds provided orange drinks, Curious George with the help of PBS volunteers made an appearance, as well as some the Mason County Commissioners and school board members.
The day was made possible by staff at Beale Elementary and Letart Sand and Gravel, ICL, OVB, PBS, AEP, Dollar General, McDonalds, M&Z Boutique, Amherst Madison, West Virginia Read Aloud, Mason County Extension Service, Marshall University Nutrition Program, Wild About Smiles, Warnick & Semder Dentistry and “great volunteers,” according to the school.
