It's a busy week here at Blanche School! This past week has consisted of Harvest Festival, yearbook sports/club pictures, report cards, and cooking. Being the Student Council president, I am happy to say that my fellow council members and I were chosen by our principal, Mrs. Christy Wright, to cook with Chef Jonathan Lankford. The food that each member cooked was pizza. There were a variety of toppings and sauces. We all had so much fun being able to cook, and hope to do it again!
My student council peers and I had a fun time working in the Harvest Festival this past week. We loved being behind the scenes and working with the kids that participated in it. The kindergarten-second grade king and queen was Hadley Graham and Wesley Higginbotham in kindergarten. For third through fifth grade, we have Malayna Street and Sidney DeWeese from fifth grade. Last but not least, in the sixth through eighth grade division, Paiton Patterson and Logan Hardiman from eighth grade won queen and king. Blanche's 2018 Harvest Festival was a great success!
We also have library classes every other week and we do some fun activities. This week we had to make a miniature shelter for our teeny family. We each had $10 to buy materials such as wax paper, tape, aluminum foil, paper, paper plates, etc. We had to build a shelter that would survive the "flood." Mrs. Judy Conley, our librarian, would pour water onto our shelter and if our family stayed dry, it was considered a win. In my class, all of our tiny families stayed dry! That's a wrap for this week, so I will talk to you all next time!

Welcome back everybody! Just like that, football season is officially over. Friday, November 2, the Tigers traveled to West and left everything on the field, defeating the wildcats in an excellent show of talent. Of course, this also meant the last marching performance of the Ardmore Band as well. With that, other sports are commencing as the year comes to a close. For instance, marching band has now converted into concert band.
Josten's also came by recently, giving a presentation to the seniors on graduation materials and mementos. Students had the options to order "Class of 19" socks, hoodies, and accessories. Just in time as well!
Seniors also recently got the awesome opportunity to apply for colleges for free college application week. Our class submitted over 150 applications alone! Scholarships are coming in and things are looking awesome. Personally I am preparing for scholars and balancing AP work. We had to attend study session for various classes to prepare for these arduous tests. They were quite educational though, and most of the students felt quite helped.
