Got any of these crawling around? If you do contact Mrs.McCarthy and her kindergarteners, so they can have an exciting year.
Have you ever wondered what the Kindergarteners and Mrs. McCarthy do during the day? We interviewed them and this is what we found. In the morning if you hear some music it isn’t a band it is the kindergartener class. They sing their "Good Morning Song," every morning in both Spanish and English. Another activity they love is buddies. Bowen Sundberg said he loves hanging out with his buddy Mason who he says is awesome. A great idea Mrs. McCarthy had was to build a fairy garden. She said the reason she wanted a fairy garden was because people need more chances to use their imagination and stop playing in the bushes!!! Xochitl (pronounced so-chi) said her favorite part of the fairy garden was playing with the fairy’s. Last the question of the month that we asked Mrs. McCarthy was what her favorite memory of kindergarten was? She said, "eating paste!" This is Dakota Voortman and Sophia Thompson signing off as the kindergarten reporter.

3rd and 4th grade class News:
With heavy hearts we said good bye last year to the 3rd and 4th grade teacher Mrs. Holcomb. Now we excitedly welcome Mrs. Travao as our new 3rd-4th grade teacher. 3rd graders Charlie Birdsong and Maddie Dickens tell me that they are eagerly reading Charlotte’s Web in their class. 4th grader Jenna O’neil informs me that the 4th graders have been doing multiplication in math and also math bingo. Tristan McCarthy says that the 3rd graders do math games, but he predicts that they will do Number Corner in September. Kyla Ryan has been reading the book Frindle in fourth grade. I think that the 3rd and 4th graders are going to have an awesome year.
As this is the first time writing the article I now introduce myself-River McCarthy, the third and fourth grade reporter. Come to me with new ideas so that I can include it in the next edition.

7th and 8th Grade Class News:
Nicole Brunker interviewed Mr. Russell on his ideas for the school year: "To especially prepare the eighth graders for high school by teaching them how to communicate effectively. Basically my goal is to prepare you for what the next level is. I'm not only trying to prepare you academically but also socially. I'm trying to prepare eighth-graders and seventh graters alike not only for high school but for life itself, for example, how to prepare for a job interview and review how to interact with people."
In the community, we have only one announcement. It is coming up in October, and it will make our little town shiny again. On the 15th from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.. we will have a Clubhouse clean-up, which will include installing new doors, and cleaning the inside and outside of the Clubhouse. After we clean, there may be a possibility that we will clean The Millers Hall as well, but we are not for certain. Also, after we are completely finished, a potluck will be held. Kids who attend the clean-up, may be eligible for community service, so tell your High school family members. Thanks for reading the Paw-Prints-Press. Signing off, your Student Body President, Jude Krick.
Nicole Brunker has interviewed Dr. J on her plans for the school year. "For Halloween we'll do the pumpkin decorating contest. We will also maybe hold a pumpkin roll contest at school and will encourage kids to participate in the Pumpkin Roll and we'll do the usual for Christmas, of course, we'll do the Christmas Show. and an overall plan is that all students will feel welcome at this school, and they have what they need. Of course we'll do the rodeo parade, and I want the school to be recognized all over Stanislaus County because I want kids from all over coming to this 'Little School On the Hill'."
