Children enjoy finding out about the creepy, crawly creatures in their world, so these books are a welcome addition for the children. On April 26, parents and students were able to "level up" and visit with teachers for the grade level that they will be promoted to next year. Each grade level group of teachers gave a short presentation about what makes their grade special, what to expect for classwork and homework, as well as answer questions from students and parents.

Sufton's 4th grade field trip to the Georgia Aquarium, a Kiss a Pig fundraiser was held. Teachers and students could "vote" for the fac- ulty member they wanted to kiss a pig by donating money into that person's container. The faculty mem- bers that the students and staff could choose were Mrs. Sandy Watson, Mrs. Becky Brown, Mrs. Megan Smallwood, Mrs. Brittany Bagwell, Coach Jason Morrow, Mrs. Misti Sikes, and Ms. Joanne Binns. The race between Coach Jason Morrow and Ms. Joanne Binns was within a few dollars. Ms. Joanne Binns raised $141 toward the field trip for the students and kissed a tiny pig from Sweet Basil Farms. Overall, the fundraiser brought in a little over $300. .
