Whodunnit?

a

Whodunnit? That is the question consuming fourth and fifth graders at West Point Elementary School this month. The students are working on a month-long mystery project in the media center where they must crack codes, learn about fingerprints, make observations and even try their hand with invisible ink. Additionally, they are learning all about the mystery genre and listening to mysteries in different formats such as stories, podcasts and videos. During the month, students can check out mystery books from special bags. If they read a book and do a book report on it they earn a pass to a special "Mystery Reward" party. What is they mystery party all about? Many of our super sleuths have a hunch but none have found enough evidence to make a solid case.

Handmade Bookmarks

a

Jeffrey Edel, an artist out of Bryson City, NC, recently donated 75 handmade bookmarks to Berta Weathersbee and West Point Elementary schools. The bookmarks are carved out of wood and embellished with a variety of colorful beads. Edel made the bookmarks to be distributed at the school's discretion and to hopefully motivate students to read a good book. He included this quote from Nancy Campbell with the package of bookmarks, "As well as being a functional tool, a bookmark denotes human effort as decisively as a flagstaff planted on Everest. (It) silently congratulates the conqueror of a world of letters." Both schools are extremely thankful for his kind donation.

3rd Grade Family Lunch

a

Third graders at West Point Elementary school recently enjoyed hosting their families for lunch in the cafeteria!
