In May, sixth graders at Cherokee Bend Elementary School participated in mini-courses. Courses offered were sewing, photography, tennis, golf, cooking, yearbook production and creative writing, among other topics. Each student selected a course of interest to them and attended the 90-minute classes daily.
In sewing, students learned the basics of machine sewing, including how to read and cut out a pattern, hem edges and insert Mini courses offered at CBS elastic casing. They put their skills to use by making pajama shorts, pillowcases and towel wraps.
Photography students learned how to use their own personal camera effectively. They took portraits of their classmates. One day they came dressed to play their favorite sport and took action shots of each other.
PTO mini-course committee chairs were Cindy Doody and Sally Lineberry.
