Scott students had fun during story- time with Mrs. Tracy Brinkman of Monroe County Library. She taught how to pro- nounce a few Spanish words as well as how to use sign language. She read two stories in Spanish, "Hurry Up, Molly" by Lone Morton & "Family (Lafamilia)" by Clare Beaton. Students were able to recognize many of the words spoken in Spanish. They were asked many ques- tions and gave correct answers. As a closing strategy each student had to speak a term in Spanish or give the sign language of a word or phrase taught by Ms. Brinkman while leaving storytime. Kindergartener Josiah Zellner talks with Tracy Brink- man during StoryTime at T.G. Scott. T.G. Scott students and staff showed their support of University of Georgia or Alabama before the National Championship game on Jan. 8. Pictured above is Mrs. Woods'4th grade class. T.G.

Students are willing to lend a helping hand and provide for others.They were very involved this year in bringing in non-perishable items for donations. Several classes went above and beyond in the drive, but two classrooms really provided a large number of goods. Mrs. Cone and her class of first graders donated 211 pounds of goods, while Mrs. Dungan's 3rd graders were close behind with 113 pounds. Congrats to TGS and all of the students for a grand total of 2,150 pounds. "We can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone"- Ronald Reagan. Pictured above is Mrs. Cone's class.
