Eighteen Western Plains Junior High and High School students attended the comedic musical, "A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder," on Saturday, October 7th, at Felton Start Theatre on the Fort Hays State University campus. FHSU kept up the fine tradition of excellence in the theatre arts, celebrating more than 50 years of performances at Felton Start Theatre. Students were able to experience many of the arts at this production: singing, acting, orchestra performance, costume design, set design, and lighting. They enjoyed a black comedy with a surprise ending (which actually made them gasp), as well as superb acting and singing. A fun time was had by all! The students were sponsored by Denice Flax (Music Director), Cheryl Rein (WP South Teacher), and Nayeli Gomez (WP South School Secretary). Mrs. Flax would like to thank Mrs. Rein and Mrs. Gomez for their time and help, as well as their constant support of the WP Music Program!

Five things you need to know
Miss Tiffany's North & South STEM classes have been busy learning exciting things this year. K-3 are learning about healthy habits. They have learned the proper way to brush and floss their teeth, wash their hands and to keep from spreading germs, how to pick healthy foods and snacks, and interesting facts about eyes. They are rounding out their modules by creating Healthy Habit Story books. 4th and 5th grades have been learning about DNA, genetics, and heredity. They have created DNA models out of pipe cleaners, extracted DNA from strawberries, interviewed family members about genetic traits, how to fill out Punnett squares, and will be ending their module by learning about fingerprints. Junior High has been busy learning about all types of energy. They are learning how energy works, how we can conserve energy, and whether it is renewable or not. They are currently creating Penguin Habitats where they have to build the habitat to keep a Penguin shaped ice cube from melting under a heat lamp.

K-1 did a fun writing activity that involved solving a mystery case of the missing Scribble Spot. During SEL, K-1 colored and created emotion sticks and Mrs. A brought out the mini Spots to discuss the relations of emotions to colors. During writing, Mrs. A and her students realized that Scribble Spot was missing, so they had a mystery to solve. In order to solve the mystery they had to form a question, list the names of suspects, draw out a plan to find Scribble Spot, find clues, and track Scribble Spot The students used their emotion sticks to describe what they were feeling, they realized that they can have mixed emotions to events. The students worked hard to solve the case and to their surprise, the culprit was novother than Mrs. A! Scribble Spot was safely found in the tub of desk drum noodles, but could Mrs. A do this to Scribble Spot?!? Scribble Spot is one the learning tools K-1 uses to identify and help regulate emotions, along with using the district chosen curriculums.

Little detective on the case: Who took Scribble Spot?
This detective is expressing that she is sad (blue), mad (red), and grey (anxiety/scared) for the disappearance of Scribble Spot!
The detectives are looking for clues and also for suspects.
Could Scribble Spot be hiding in the desk drum noodles?
Scribble Spot has been found, yaay!
The detectives figured out who was the culprit who hid Scribble Spot. It was Mrs. A!!
The K-1 detectives have solved the case of the missing Scribble Spot! They couldn't believe that their own teacher could do such a thing to their beloved friend.
After waiting a whole week of looking at pool noodles, K-1 finally got to use them in action during one of their movement breaks.

K-1 students finally got to use their desk drum noodles. A lot of rules and responsibility comes from using such amazing tools!
