Halloween STEM Challenge!

Today, we got to complete a fun Candy Corn STEM Mini Challenge! The students had to work together to create the tallest tower they could out of candy corn and toothpicks! There were some bumps along the way, but every team ended with a structure! Way to go engineers!

North Georgia Fair Food Booth with Cobb County Sheriff’s Office

The Cobb County Sheriff’s Office has been our partner in education for many years.  Representatives from the Sheriff’s Office volunteer their time, resources and talents for our students many times a month.  The biggest fund raiser they have for their Partners in Education Fund is to sponsor a food booth at the North Georgia State Fair.  This can bring in up to $10,000 which in return comes back to Bells Ferry Elementary.


The Sheriff’s Office is in need of volunteers to assist with the food booth.  They need Bells Ferry Community Members to help with taking and filling food orders.  The North GA State Fair runs from Thursday, September 21st through Sunday, October 1st.  Feel free to coordinate your volunteering time with the North Georgia Fair events.  Parents may split the hours of the shift but please know that children under the age of 16 years will not be allowed in the booth.  High school students needing volunteer hours are more than welcome to sign up!


Benefits of volunteering:

  • Free Fair Parking
  • Free Admission to the Fair
  • Free Meal for Volunteers (from booth)

Camp Day!

Today was such a great day! We started off by making our “Camping is Cool” picture frames. Then, we grabbed our backpacks and headed over to the campsite for a snack and “A Goofy Movie.” That is one of my favorite childhood movies and I love getting to share it with my class!

After specials and recess, we came back in to hear Mr. Hooker read us a story. He’s always so fun to hear stories from!

Finally, after lunch, we all got a delicious campfire treat– S’MORES! While we enjoyed those, we got to finish “A Goofy Movie!” What a fabulous way to end the day! I hope you all enjoyed it!
