News information at Sutton
Sutton 3rd and 4th graders have been learning about Bluegrass music with the Bluegrass in the Schools (B.I.T.S.) sponsored by the Bluegrass Museum from January 2nd through January 13th. Today they were able to welcome a Bluegrass Band out of Nashville, TN called High Fidelity. The students learned more about the history of Bluegrass and its Founder, Bill Monroe, while clapping to the beat of the music performed by the group.
The Bluegrass Museum offers a Saturday class for students which is designed to make bluegrass music more accessible to all who are interested in learning to play an instrument. Please visit: http://www.bluegrassmuseum.org/saturday-music-lessons/ for more information.

The Sutton Dance Team performed during half time of the varsity game on Friday. Friday was Sutton night at OHS. 182 students from Sutton were able to come to the OHS game and sit with Mrs. Johnson while snacking on Popcorn and a drink form the concession stand. This was a reward for students who sold Discount Cards at the beginning of the year. The night started with the Sutton Chorus singing the national anthem and the dance team showing of their amazing routine at halftime despite the technical difficulties. The night ended with OHS beating the Mustangs 74-54. Go Red Devils !!!

I'm joining millions of others to help save lives with the American Heart Association!
At my school, I'm learning how I can help make a difference by raising lifesaving donations to help kids with heart disease. I'm also learning about my own heart, and how to keep it healthy. And I'm getting active!
I'm excited about raising money for other kids - kids with hearts that don't exactly work right and to help fund new medicines and treatments to be discovered.
School Wide Rewards:
-The student who raises the most donations will get to be PE teacher for the Day!
-The top 5 students in the school who raise the most donations will get to cover Mr. Roberts the PE Teacher with silly string at a school-wide assembly.
-The class that has the most donations will get extra PE time!
-As a school if we raise $5,000 Mr. Roberts will wear a puppy costume to school for a whole day.
-All Donations are due back to school by March 11, 2016.
Please help me make a difference! Thank you!
