Carson Powell, a second grade student at West Elementary won the South Central Ohio Elks Lodge Hoop Shoot in Jackson on January 24. More than 32 boys and girls from surrounding area schools participated. Each participant was required to shoot 25 free throws and the one student with the best score from each age group won the shoot. South Central Ohio Elks encompasses 13 lodges spanning from the Ohio River to as north as Marysville, north of Columbus. Carson moves on to shoot in Gahanna on Febuary 20th in hopes of the state title. We all wish Carson the best of luck!!

Mrs Banks offered to take a pie in the face from her students who increased their words per minute read score by more than twenty words per minute within a testing period. She had two students who achieved that goal and on Monday February 1st she took two pies in the face, one from each of those students. The students were very proud of themselves for making such great gains and very excited to be able to give their teacher a pie in the face!
