On April 4th, the Elkhart Head Start students took their 9th annual fishing trip to the Texas Freshwater Fishery Center in Athens. Upon arrival, the children and their families rode a tram down to the wetlands where
they took a mile long hike. Along the trail, they spotted foot prints of various animals and saw many different inhabitants of the wetlands. After the hike, they got to tour the hatchery where they saw many types of fish, alligator, turtles, and other wild animals. The students enjoyed a picnic lunch with their families. After lunch, some of the children and their families went fishing while others just had a good time enjoying the day. The most important part of the whole day was spending time making memories
of a life time.

This six weeks character word was TRUSTWORTHINESS. Each teacher handed out BLUE stars to students who exhibited this awesome behavior! One student from each classroom that earned the BLUE star was chosen to sit at the “Kids with Character” lunch table with Mrs. Smith, our Counselor. They also had their picture taken to be displayed on the “Kids with Character” bulletin board for all to see!
