All Things Alabama

As part of our school's celebration of Alabama's bicentennial, on April 5, 2019, Webb Elementary School students participated in a program called "All Things Alabama."  Mrs. Karen Mann, one of the gifted specialists of Houston County, worked very hard preparing our school for this day.  There were many people involved in this endeavor.  Local storytellers, historians, beekeepers, an expert in folk music, an Alabama farmer, the Webb fire chief, a geologist, a beauty queen, a master gardener, and even Kasey Cooper (a softball player from a championship  Auburn team) were on hand to entertain and inform the boys and girls of WES.  Mrs. Brock, our own Instructional Coach, shared books by authors who are/were from Alabama-a student favorite was Thirteen Alabama Ghosts.  Mr. Doug Summerford had a vast array of animal skins and skulls on display.  And a game warden brought a baby alligator and educated our students on the right thing to do when you see wild animals in their habitat.  Community news reporters were on hard to capture this day.  Many thanks to the Webb Elementary School Beta Club and the TAG students that helped out with classes as they rotated throughout the displays.  Also, thank you to the CTC students who helped our teachers and guests and Mr. Bryan and two of his students, Rebecca Martin and Alyssa Gabrielson, from Houston County High School's Media Arts class.
