We are thrilled to announce that Lowe’s has awarded Hallie Randall Elementary a $4,700 Lowe’s Toolbox for Education grant! The funding is for an outdoor reading covered area, and a “buddy bench” at recess time.

Our grant application was based on the goal of building a love of literacy in our youngest readers. We look forward to sharing the outdoor reading area with our students in the Fall of 2019.

Collaborative Poetry Project
05/01/2019
On April 29th, the students in 8A completed a poetry project that we began at the beginning of the year; however, due to some circumstances going on in our school during that time, we decided to hold off our project until the end of April, which is National Poetry Month. 
 
We created a collaborative poem with many different students, teachers, and administrators. Each person who contributed to our poem wrote two lines of poetry. The next person only got to see the second line of what the person in-front of them had written. 
 
Our goal, was to show that poetry doesn't always have to have a structure; instead, the main goal of poetry is to make its reader feel something. So whether our poem makes you laugh, smile, or cry, or it makes your feel confused and unsure, we will argue that it is still poetry. 
 
 Our poem ended up being over 50 feet long and contained some weird coincidences, interesting connections. humorous statements, and deep reflections of life. 

 
The original copy of the poem is hanging in the middle school hallway. 
 
Thank you to all who let their students participate and to those who participated themselves.

Varsity Baseball
05/01/2019

Last night the Bobcat Baseball season came to an end.  Even though we fell just short of our goals this season, I could not be more proud of the way these young men competed last night.  We were up against a team that was playing really well and we stuck with them and had our opportunities to steal the game from them.  Another hit or two in key situations and I think we would have pulled it out.  These young men competed to the very end and we have some great foundation pieces moving forward as we were a very inexperienced team at a lot of positions this year.  Thank you to those who came out and supported us this season.
