Richton Elementary School got another grant today! McGee Enterprise, Brandon, MS, donated three VEX IQ Robotics kits to our growing robotics program at Richton Elementary! We want to thank Mr. Mike Thomas and Mr. Dwyane McGee for supporting our program.
Richton Elementary Jr. Beta makes the top five in group talent at Mississippi Jr. Beta Convention in Tupelo, Mississippi!
We are so proud of our 4th, 5th and 6th graders that competed against big groups of 7-8th grade teams. We placed in the top five out of 17 teams. This was our second time to go to the Jr. Beta Convention in recent years. We had students participate in many academic contests, created a scrapbook, created a banner and met many Betas from across our state. There were 3,000 students who attended the event. Special thanks to Shelly Tucker (and Mr. Tucker), Kristen Walley and Dedra Perry for all the practice and preparation. Parents were glad to attend and see their students in action. Thanks to all who helped with this event. We hope to take the RMS with us next year!
I am a wife, mother and love being an educator at East Marion High School.
