This week's Bengal Spotlight Featured PAWS class is Mr. Ian Lane's class!! Hello there! Our eccentric group loves to spend time with each other. We love doing PAWS challenges with other classes, doing PAWS crafts, and enjoying free time on our laptops looking at Pinterest. One of our favorite things to do is challenge other classes to games of Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros. Sports might not always be our thing, but we are always up for a good challenge!

The Bengal Library Annual Pickle Hunt was a success! Congratulations on all the Bengals who found a pickle this year! We hope you can share this tradition with your family and put a smile on the lucky person who finds the Christmas Pickle at your home... Lesson to remember is stop and take in the beauty around you do not be so quick to just win the prize! We hope our Bengals found some Beauty in the Library the same Beauty Mrs. Auld and Mrs. Siemers see in it daily! Happy Holidays

This week our Bengal Spotlight Featured PAWS is Mrs. Pfizenmaiers PAWS. Mrs. Pfizenmaier’s PAWS is a goofy bunch of kiddos that are almost half 7th graders! Like any family, they squabble and joke but come together when something needs to be done. They enjoy PAWS challenges- dodgeball and spoons especially- morning meetings, silent ball, and shenanigans!

Our 8th-grade students got the privilege to have a whole class field trip today at the Topeka Performing Arts Center. They have made it safely and are settling in to join Clara's adventures with the Nutcracker Prince to defeat the wicked Mouse King! This Christmas ballet performance is steeped in other-worldly fantasy, childlike imagination, and sugarplum dreams. We are excited our students are getting to experience this!

Today's Bengal Spotlight Featured Department is the Science Department. The Science team implemented a new curriculum last year, that specifically addresses the Next Generation Science Standards. Labs, hands-on discovery, and small group investigations are all part of the new curriculum. It has been great and has had many benefits for our students. These three teachers were so busy teaching their hands-on lessons they avoided a group photo but we still managed to get them on a poster together... Below is a peek into the world of our Science Crew: Jason Walsh taught 6th grade SPED, Elementary Music, and 6th grade Science. He lives in Leonardville with his wife and three daughters. The oldest is going to college, the middle daughter is a senior and the youngest is a junior. Jason was in the Army and contracted with the Army before teaching. Greg Kalivoda has been teaching for 32 years. Teaching Physical Education and Science, from Goddard, Paola, and Clay Center since 2000. His wife of 20 years is Shannon Kalivoda, sons William, Garett, and Hayden make their home in Miltonvale, KS. He enjoys hunting, shooting, and fishing year-round, as well as watching his boys in sports. Summers are spent construction/remodeling, gardening/canning, and traveling with his family. He bleeds Yankee Blue and K-State Purple! Craig Rickley is in his 26th year teaching science at CCCMS. He enjoys traveling with his wife Dana, visiting his sons Brett and Thomas and their families, playing golf, and rooting on the K-State Wildcats and Las Vegas Raiders.
