The 6th Grader’s from Fort Calhoun Elementary school, led by their music teacher Samantha Bryan, sang Christmas carols for the residents at Autumn Pointe Assisted Living Community. The students did a great job and the residents enjoyed hearing some Christmas classics.
Fort Calhoun Elementary Student Council Members sent care packages to troops overseas. The packages included snacks, bubble gum, and mints. They also added holiday cards that students in the school made. They were so grateful this year for monetary donations from the VFW, the Jaycees and the Knights of Columbus here in Fort Calhoun which made this possible. Such a great community we live in. Student Council Members are as follows.
Clara Godfrey, Kellen Robinson, Danny Powel, and Ella Bouwman.
Stella Wilmes, Jovi Greiner, Moria Doyle, Lyla Pearson, Macie Collins, and Emily Barta.
Allison Prunty, Sammie Ludwig, Samantha Thomas, Grant Ruma, Addison Benoit, Max Halford, Anna Taylor and Anna Melville.

The kids read a total of 161,850 minutes outside school hours during the six week period of our Books and Buzz Cuts reading incentive program. Principal Drew Wagner and 6th grade teacher Todd Teeter agreed to let kids give them buzz cuts and counselor Marie Adams agreed to let them cut 5-6 inches off her hair if they reached their reading goals. Miss Hall’s kindergarteners won the competition. The 9 kids who read the most and earned the opportunity to cut hair were Alisa Taylor, Noah Grove, Geno Roberts, Sammie Ladwig, Cami Christensen, Gerald Taylor, Bode Welchert, Anna Taylor and Emma Rodriquez Weiss.
