On September 17, Boy Scout and Marvin Ridge High School senior Evan Bellamy and fellow scouts in his troop completed his Eagle Scout Project for Walter Bickett Elementary School. His project was to build a Little Free Library for the school in order to promote literacy and reading within the school’s community.
Fourth Graders at Walter Bickett Elementary are learning all about the moon and it’s phases. To promote their understanding, students used oreo cookies to carve out the various phases of the moon. Using cookies and plastic spoons, groups of students worked together to represent each phase of the moon.
