Just want everyone to know that I’m still working on the Electra Classroom Teachers’ Benefit page. The electricity was down due to the storm, and I’ve had a slight delay. I have over 200 pictures that can be downloaded from my media page if anyone wants them. I didn’t have time to touch them up but you can download them at full resolution. I would have taken better pictures if I had of known that more needed them. I was just taking them for fun and for my site. However they are there for anyone that wants them. I’ll put out another post when I have the page up.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Electra Classroom Teachers’ Benefit last night. Everyone of you that participated did a fantastic job! Also Mrs. Bigbie and all of the teachers that helped need to be commended. It’s not easy to pull off such an event. The high school royalty looked great. Our scholarship went to Treyce Cook, and I could not have been prouder. I know that Treyce will make Electra ISD proud and will represent our district well.
The Electra Classroom Teachers’ Benefit is a traditional annual community event for our school system. Mrs. Wright, the lady who was the master of ceremony, was one of the recipients of the scholarships. I can remember being in high school and watching the event. I also remember my own kids participating in the event. Now I get to see my grandchildren participating. Chances are you also have family members that have participated in the benefit. That’s one of the neat things about living in our small district is that we have traditions that we carry out from generation to generation. That’s the reason I chose to stay here, and I love this school. That’s also the reason that one of my daughters, Laura, and her husband chose to move back here with her two boys. She loved our school. There are benefits to small towns and small schools!!!
I just want to say again…Good job Electra Elementary! Also Electra High school looked fantastic. Everyone worked hard and made Electra ISD proud. The teachers appreciate the community coming and supporting the students and the benefit. Get ready because Mrs. Bigbie is already writing ideas down for next year!
This week is the Teachers’ Benefit. Many of you are in it. For those of you that aren’t, come support your classmates and the benefit. The proceeds from the benefit go for a scholarship to give to a graduating senior each year. Who knows, you might be awarded the scholarship when you graduate. The program is this Thursday at 7:oo pm. Mrs. Bigbie and the students have been working very hard on the program. It’s centered around old TV shows and old commercials. I know that it’s going to be a really good program.
Don’t forget about the Relay for Life page that I want to build for our site. If you have pictures that you want to put on the page, bring them. Don’t forget about buying the cupcakes! The class that buys the most cupcakes will get a cupcake party. The money goes to Relay for Life to fight cancer! Also you can sign up for a painting class called Pocket Picasso, all supplies included, for $40.00. The class is called “Put a Lid on Cancer.” Registration is open till Friday, May 1st. To register, you can contact Mrs. Buchanan or me. The class will be held at the Electra Community Center on Monday, May 4th from 6:00 – 9:00. You can paint your plaque however you like. The proceeds will go to the Electra Relay for Life team -“Plowing Over Cancer.”
