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!    
Smoky The Bear Visits Mallory!

Smoky the Bear made an appearance at Mallory on Tuesday.  He visited with the kindergarten classes and discussed fire safety.  After their visit, Smoky stuck around to give high-fives, hugs and to pose for some class pictures.  Thanks for visiting with us Smoky!

Mr. Viets says "Hello" to Mallory!
Mrs. Viets's husband flew over Mallory this afternoon in the DirecTV Blimp.  He is the pilot of the blimp and was flying from Chicago, Illinois to Dallas, Texas.  He "waved" at Mallory's students and teachers and circled around to give us all a GREAT view!  Thank you for taking time out of your day and sharing with us Mr. Viets!  We thought it was awesome!

BHS Student Council is Helping Kadie get Her Wish

Buffalo High School Student Council is participating in the Kids for Wish Kids program this year. They will be sponsoring 10 year old Kadie from Springfield, MO. Kadie was diagnosed with Scimitar Syndrome. Scimitar or pulmonary venolobar, syndrome is a rare but well-known congenital cardiovascular defect that includes a hypoplastic right pulmonary artery and right lung. This leads to displacement of cardiac structures into the right hemithorax, anomalous systemic arterial supply to the right lung, and a characteristically curved right pulmonary vein.  

When asked what her one true wish was, Kadie stated, “To have a treehouse.” When asked why this was her one true wish she said, “It would be cool to have sleepovers, secret clubs, and parties in it!” Kadie also stated that it would be nice to have a place that was all hers.  

If you would like to help in anyway you can contact Angela Smith at angela.smith@bisonpride.org or Carley Smith at 16smithcarley@bisonpride.us!

Stay tuned to see what events Student Council will be doing to help make Kadie's wish come true!
