Happy New Year from Lockard library! As usual, we are very busy reading and learning in the library! 

In December all students were able to choose a Christmas themed, free RIF book and receive a new Christmas bookmark to help keep up with all of their reading. Students learned about Christmas around the World and other winter holidays as they "visited" many countries displayed in our library. 

Coming soon, students will be receiving the book The World According to Humphrey to read with friends and family.  This is part of the Mississippi Reads One Book program.  Be looking for more details.                                                                            

Happy Reading, Mrs. Burkett 

Mason’s Memo

Keep Moving Forward…..“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” ~ Martin Luther King Jr.

Each year on the third Monday of January our nation observes a holiday to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for his service and sacrifice to make our country a better place. I am always moved when I listen to his speeches and the interviews of those who lived life along- side of him. To have lived such a short life, Dr. King left a wealth of wisdom for us to learn from and to live by each day.  

The above quote by Dr. King reminds me of how things and life are always changing. There are days that I am flying high and there are days that I can barely crawl an inch, but either way I must keep moving forward. Education is like that at times also but with the support from the families of each student in our school we keep moving forward.  

Lockard Elementary is one piece of the puzzle that makes up the Sunflower County Consolidated School District. We each play a part in the success of each student in our school which in turn plays a part in the success of our district and ultimately the success our county. Our ultimate goal is to “grow students” or to keep moving each child forward.

Thank you for supporting us as we work to keep our school moving forward. 

Music Room

K and 1st graders will be learning songs from the Blackfoot nation. Blackfoot Native Americans got their name from the dark colored moccasins that they wore. 2nd and 3rd grade students will be learning 2 Canadian folk songs who got their roots from the Native cultures there. They are called Land of the Silver Birch and Canoe Song.
