The third grade team at Anthony Elementary recently demonstrated teamwork at its finest. One of the team members, Kristy Sloan, faced medical issues that took her out of the classroom for a month. Ms. Sloan says her amazing third grade teammates, Lora Crawford and Cara Lake, picked up on her behalf in a big way. They helped with her lessons plans and assisted her substitute so that Sloan could take care of herself without worrying about her class. As a thank you for all Crawford and Lake did, Sloan purchased matching Toms shoes for the team.

Students also had a special motivational speech and rap performance from Jermain "Too Short" Wilson who told students if they do their best they can be anything they want in life. The afternoon concluded with a student vs. staff volleyball game. Students came up just short of a victory over their teachers.
