Haywood County Sheriff Bond visits with Anderson students
Students in Mrs. Leslie Phillips 3-year old preschool class at Anderson recently had the opportunity to visit with Haywood County Sheriff Melvin Bond. Sheriff Bond’s grandson, Grant, is in Mrs. Leslie’s class and enjoyed sharing his grandpa with the class. They learned a lot about what the sheriff’s office does, law enforcement, and what a sheriff does. Do you think any future sheriffs were in the class?
Fourth-graders learn about Native Americans
Mrs. Denise Phillips’ fourth-grade students made tribal headbands to wear as part of their summarization skills in Social Studies. Children gave a report on one of the Native American groups including the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Shawnee, or Creek. Several students also brought in replicas of the group’s shelter and beads used to make jewelry. Students listened to tapes with Native American flute music while working on the projects.
Corner The staff of the Elma Ross Public Library would like to extend our deepest appreciation and thanks to all our patrons, because without you the library would not be here to serve you. We hope that everyone has a blessed, happy, healthy, and bountiful Thanksgiving holiday. The library will be closed Thursday, November 25, and Friday, November 26 in honor of the Thanksgiving holiday. A big round of applause and a hearty “thank you!” are given to Dr. Joan Hartman. Dr. Hartman was our speaker for Friends Night last week. Dr. Hartman, a resident of Ripley, and author of “Sam’s Special Cookie”, has written another children’s book titled “Grace Finds Gold.” “Grace Finds Gold” is a wonderful story about a young girl named Grace and her school assignment on finding something made of gold at her home. Grace finds something more important than the precious metal called gold. Thank you, Dr. Hartman, for being with us and sharing your talents and “Grace Finds Gold” with us. Please come and visit with us again. Well, it is that time of year again. What time of year exactly? It is time for the annual Gingerbread House Family Night at the library! Gingerbread House Family Night is set for Friday, December 3 at 7 p.m. Reservations
are required. Please call the library at 772-9534 to reserve your spot today. Gingerbread House Family Night is so much fun. We read the story of the “Gingerbread Boy” and “Gingerbread Friends” and then have gooey, sticky fun making gingerbread houses from graham crackers, frosting and candy. Join us for Gingerbread House Family Night at the library! Please excuse our mess. We are still having sections of carpet being replaced. The sections being worked on right now are within the
Circulation Desk, the Genealogy Room, the Director’s Office and the Staff Workroom. Please bear with us. We apologize for any inconvenience that this process may cause, especially in the Genealogy Room. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Happy Reading!
