Congratulations to Williamsville football team for making it to the State Championship game. In support, we have adjusted our Friday schedule for the Turkey Tournament in order to allow their fans to be able to attend the girls basketball game as well as their football game.
Thank you to Ben Tarter (Mrs. King’s brother) for giving a presentation about turkeys to our third graders. We always love when he comes in. We learn a lot about turkey hunting.
Mrs. Schmitz’s class had fun working together as a team to make butter. We “churned” butter by shaking cream in a jar and then enjoyed tasting our butter on crackers.
Next time you are at the high school come check out the new trophy case display. The 2021-2022 girls’ basketball state series plaques and the 3rd place in state trophy are on display. It looks sharp.
Thank You Pana School Board for watching over us! We are thankful for you and your hard work!
