I hope everyone will be rested and refreshed after taking a break for the holidays. Some of you may have had an extremely busy holiday and are looking forward to getting back to school so you can rest! Whatever your case may be please don’t forget about the great events we have this month.
4-H will be getting back into full swing. Regular meetings and Food, Fun, and Fitness classes will resume their regular schedule this month. Also, the Ag Expo will be coming to town and many of our
4-H’ers will be participating. If you get a chance, come out and see what they’ve been up to.
Our field trip this month will be to the Old Courthouse Museum in Vicksburg, Ms. The museum was established in 1948 and showcases many educational and fascinating items. The exhibition space consists of nine rooms which span nearly 15,000 square feet. If we have a group of 10 or more we will be able to get a discount of $2.50 for students and $4.00 per adult. (Without the discount it will be $3 for students and $5 for adults). There is also a gift shop. More information about the museum can be found at their website www.oldcourthouse.org . Also on their website you can download a scavenger hunt questionnaire for your kids to complete. The museum is located at 1008 Cherry Street in Vicksburg. Also, while at the museum I will have Scholastic book order forms to distribute and any books previously ordered will be ready for pick up.
If you would like more information on any of these activities contact Vicki Kelly at (318)428-9046. I wish all of you a blessed new year and happy schooling! Check back in next month for more activities!
