Buy a Wreath from a BBS Student!

By Cody (Grade 7)

It’s the holiday season again and we’ve got wreaths to sell. Last year the Black Butte School made over 5500 dollars in wreath sales and we need to make a lot more this year. Four students have been selling wreaths for a long time: Conner, Cody (me), Ilya, and Kellen. Over the years students have raised lots of money for the PTO by selling wreaths. The money mostly supplies our end of the year overnight field trip.

Over the next few years, the Black Butte School needs to get money to buy some new playground equipment. The old equipment is breaking and cracking from old age. We have to raise thousands of dollars to be able to get new playground equipment and have it installed. All of us kids will be excited to get new playground equipment.

Buying a wreath will also help Black Butte School students to go on other field trips like, the end of the year field trip planned to the Oregon coast. We also will use the money raised to get school supplies, have pizza parties, and make our education great! Please support our school, I hope all goes well with selling and happy holidays!

P.E. Class

by Audrie (grade 4)

I love P.E. class because the class gets to play a lot of different games like Dodgeball, Soccer, and Volleyball. The awesome Shelby likes playing butt ball. Butt ball is a game when the class is in a circle with their feet together and players try to get a ball through their classmates legs. If you get the ball through your own legs you have to turn around with your bum facing inside the circle and if someone gets it through your legs again you are out! The last one in the circle wins.

Mr.Sharp, the Head Teacher hear at Black Butte School, teaches P.E.. He is awesome at it! My favorite part about P.E. is that Mr. Sharp tries to do different games that the whole class likes. When someone doesn’t like the game we are playing Mr.Sharp does his best to make it fun. Here is an example, Shelby and I are the only girls in the class and Mr.Sharp told us we were going to play dodge ball. We were a little bit scared but it turned out to be very fun!

Kellen is a 4th grader too and he has been here since he was in kindergarten, so he has been here for 5 years. His favorite part of P.E. is soccer. He was gone the first day we played (yesterday) but we played it again and he really liked it. Athan (also a 4th grader) started at BBS this year. He likes P.E. too. His favorite game is sprout ball. Sprout ball is a game when every one stands in a field and one person has a ball. They throw it at people and if they get hit they have to sit down on the ground and wait till the person that hit you gets hit by some one else.
