Unicoi County 4-H hosted the Upper Eight 4-H Public Speaking Contest at Unicoi Middle School in Erwin, TN on Tuesday, February 28th.  4-H public speaking winners from Carter, Greene, Hawkins, Hancock, Johnson, Sullivan, Unicoi, and Washington counties gathered to compete in this event.  Sullivan County was well represented by [pictured left to right] Maggie Niebruegge (Indian Springs 4th), Sam Perdue (Indian Springs 5th), Suzanne Amos (Holston Middle 6th), Kassandra Jimenez (Holston Middle 7th), and Gabe Blessing (Holston Middle 8th).  The participants each presented a prepared speech on a topic of their choosing.  Members who participate in 4-H public speaking develop valuable communication skills and self-confidence.  Maggie Niebruegge and Sam Perdue were both named first place winners in their respective grade divisions.  Congratulations to all these 4-H members for representing Sullivan County well at the Upper Eight 4-H Public Speaking Contest and thank you to the parents, teachers, and volunteers who assist our youth with 4-H public speaking.

Indian Springs Elementary librarian Timothy Dale coordinated a fabulous “Dr. Seuss Week” in honor of the famed children’s author beginning with ‘Favorite Team Colors’ on Monday, ‘Dress for Success Day’ on Tuesday, ‘Favorite Stuffed Animal Day’ on Wednesday, ‘Crazy Hat Day’ on Thursday, and ‘Grade Level Colors’ on Friday.  On Crazy Hat Day, all students assembled in the gym to view winning hats from each class, as well as to celebrate the winners of the highest number of books read for this grading period.

Indian Springs hosted a “Souper” lunch for our school board members in recognition of School Board appreciation week. Our 5th grade ambassadors invited each of them with a personal phone call, then welcomed them as they showed up at our school. They each had questions for the members and interviewed them during the lunch. Thank you for everyone who came. We enjoyed meeting and talking with you all. We appreciate our Sullivan County School Board and what you do!!!

Like the other schools in Sullivan County, teachers at Indian Springs Elementary School know that the most critical skill for success in school or life is the ability to read well.  Teachers and librarians are highly influential in connecting students to books they will enjoy reading because of how well they get to know the children.
Six outstanding readers at ISE have impressed everyone with the large number of library books completed in the first 24 weeks of school.  Congratulations to these reading all-stars!
Jacob Ritchie, Kindergarten:  159 books; Deyton Jackson, 2nd grade:  180 books; Evie Heindselman, 2nd grade:  180 books; William Cavalera, 3rd grade:  189 books; Eli Harmon, 2nd grade:  209 books; and Tommy Barger, 5th grade:  261 books.
A group of ISE students, faculty, and parents took time out of their busy schedules on Saturday to feed the homeless in Bristol, Tn. They served meals, cleaned up trash, and visited with the homeless. It was truly a rewarding experience for all, and we plan to make it a monthly tradition. Soup for the Soul occurs every third Saturday of the month. Come and join us next time for a wonderful blessing!!
