Colby Wise, Camron Stricklans, Weston Hood, Michael Turner, Abigail Nothnagel and Lydia Prescott.  The students were chosen for an excellent performance on a grade-level standardized test and then allowed to take the ACT.  Taking the ACT test allowed the students to have a greater insight into their abilities and gave them a chance to preview a college entrance exam.
April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month
“The National Child Abuse Prevention Month is a time to acknowledge the importance of families and communities working together to prevent child abuse and neglect, and to promote the social and emotional well-being of children and families. During the month of April and throughout the year, communities are encouraged to share child abuse and neglect prevention awareness strategies and activities and promote prevention across the country.” (Source)
Child abuse and neglect is a serious crime, impacting children’s lives and their families, as well as, affecting community and society. We all have a responsibility to help keep our most vulnerable population, our children, safe and cared for. To report child abuse and neglect call the hotline at 1-800-392-3738, TDD: 1-800-669-8689.
School Farm Welcomes New Animals
The Buffalo High School agriculture program's school farm welcomes new animals. Five agriculture students each purchased a crossbred market hog to raise and exhibit at the Dallas County Livestock Show Thursday, June 23, 2016.  Ag construction students built the floors and pens that house the pigs inside the barn.  The students also replumbed water lines to the waterers. 

The students' hogs weigh approximately 85 pounds right now. They will be weighed in for the fair April 23 and again June 23 for the market hog show.  The finish show weight should be about 260 pounds. The pigs will be judged on rate of gain and muscle mass. They will also be judged in an on-foot class with other market hogs comparable to their weight. The show is a terminal show in which the pigs will be sold after the show in an auction. The pigs will be purchased by local businesses and individuals that come to bid on the hogs and support the students in their agriculture projects. Other businesses and family members may also support the students with added money to the hogs.

The agriculture program and students would like to thank show pig producer, Joe Roberts of Fair Grove, for selling them pigs for a fair market value to help the students sell their pigs for a profit.
Caring For Kids After Trauma and Death
Dear Parents,
I have shared information entitled:  Caring For Kids After Trauma and Death which is published by the Institute for Trauma and Stress at the NYU Child Study Center. A "Parent's Guide" begins on page 16 of the document. It provides information on how children react, what they know and what to say and is presented for different age groups as they process death differently according to their age. Other information includes helping children cope with death, bereavement coping tasks and when to get help: general warning signs. This guide is intended to help parents and school personnel respond to the needs of students after a death. It is not intended to serve as a guide to clinical care or bereavement counseling. The Crisis Response Team is currently available to work with students individually and in small groups and will continue to be available as long as necessary.

Horses of Hope Visits Kindergarten
Horses of Hope paid a visit to some of Mallory's Kindergarten classes on Thursday.  Shannon Stewart, from Horses of Hope, and a couple of volunteers brought a pony named "Little Black" to meet the children. After the children had gotten a chance to pet (and hug) Little Black, Shannon announced to the classes that each student would be receiving a copy of the book "Little Black, a Pony" by Walter Farley, the same author that wrote the best selling novel "The Black Stallion".  The books are being presented to Mallory's Kindergartners courtesy of Horses of Hope and Dollar General.  What a special time our little bison had!  Little Black shared many hugs with our kids, and Miss Lenz even stood still long enough to do an interview with KOLR 10.  Learning is a lot of fun at Mallory!  
"Millionaires" at Mallory
Mallory Elementary has it's first two "millionaires" for the 2015-2016 School Year.  Kimberly Evans from Mrs. Duskin's fourth grade and Sophia Jason from Mrs. Quigley's fourth grade have each read over ONE MILLION words this school year.  WOW!!!  Way to go girls!  We're very proud of you.  
Thank You Buffalo Wal-Mart!
This morning, the Buffalo Wal-Mart presented TEN Mallory Teachers with $50 gift cards!  Thank You Wal-Mart for your continued support of Mallory and our little Bison!  
Pre-K Bison Visit the Pumpkin Patch!
Our youngest Bison recently visited the pumpkin patch.From the looks of things, they had a wonderful time!  We're proud of our youngest Bison! 
Kindergartners and Apples!
To celebrate the end of their apples unit and their study of the fall season,  Mallory's Kindergarten classes recently visited Sunshine Valley Farm in Rogersville.  While there, they learned about the many different varieties of apples, learned how to properly pick apples, and then were allowed to pick some to bring back to school, where they made home-made apple sauce!

Transportation "Need to Know"
1.  The transportation handbook is in every child's handbook/planner, as well as on the transportation department webpage.
2.  A home address and one alternate address is all that is allowed. Bus passes for the alternate address must be requested through the child's school office by noon.
3.  All children, 2nd grade and younger must have a parent/guardian visible at the bus stop at drop off time. After three times of not having a parent visible, the child will lose bus riding privileges.
4.  If you live in town, check the new bus stop map. Bus stops have been reduced but not eliminated.
