Our SPC families enjoyed games, music, and great food. Mr. Ivey and Mr. Sujka volunteered for the dunking booth! A special thanks to the Creek Church for providing volunteers, activities and delicious food!
Congratulations to the SPC Track Team and Coach MacDougall for their excellent work at the Clay County Elementary Track Meet.
Swimming Pen Creek Elementary students and staff enjoyed many activities this week as we celebrated Dr. Seuss' birthday. On Monday, we wore hats in honor of The Cat in the Hat. On Tuesday, SPC Otters wore green for Green Eggs and Ham. Many classes made and ate their own versions of green eggs and ham. On Wacky Wednesday, students wore mismatched items. Thursday was silly sock day for The Fox in Socks. Today, Friday, our celebration culminated with the Seuss Book, Oh the Places You'll Go! Students and staff wore their favorite college shirt, and the students enjoyed spending part of the day reading in the sunshine.
Mrs. Homminga, of the Clay County Arts Enrichment program, taught the fifth grade social studies classes a lesson on portraiture. The students enjoyed learning about different artists and techniques, and also were able to create their own abstract self-portrait.
Mrs. Shaw's fifth grade reading class celebrated "Read Across America" today with a "Read In." They enjoyed doughnuts and great books!

Students celebrated the 100th Day of School by completing many enjoyable activities. Some of our students dressed as they might look when they are 100 years old! The kindergarteners made a special hat and necklace, painted 10 sets of 10 dots to create a 100 dot picture, used 100 cups and 100 pattern blocks to build, played Race to 100, and weighed 100 pennies to find out what was heavier/lighter. Students ate 100th day snacks, as well.
