Before Thanksgiving, 7th Graders were learning about bacteria in Ms. Hedrick's Science class. They swabbed bacteria from a dirty desk (side A on the Petri dish) and swabbed a sanitized desk for side B. Some sanitizers worked better than others. Our class winners were Clorox wipes and Norwex cloth.

Smithton 7th graders made "Thank You" cards for veterans last week. Many of the students made cards for veterans in their families. Those students that did not have a veteran to give their cards to on Veterans Day made cards for local community veterans. These veterans received the cards at a special luncheon at the Smithton Catholic War Veterans Post 370 on Veterans Day.
