Jennifer Jones and Ashley January of Slocum FFA attended the Martins Mill Livestock Show this past Saturday held in Canton. Both girls exhibited their market lambs at the show. Jennifer Jones placed first in her class, while Ashley placed second in a lighter weight division. Slocum FFA Advisor Maggie Salem said she is, "so proud of the girls considering both the lambs are still green and this was Ashley's first show, the girls have until April to perfect their show technique and ready their lambs for the county show, I am really excited to see what happens."
This Tuesday, the Slocum boys and girls basketball teams both pulled out the win at Frankston. The girls basketball team is going to Zavalla this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday for a tournament. Good luck Lady Mustangs!!
On Monday night, Mrs. Edwards had her annual Christmas recital with her Pre-K through 5th grade classes. It was a hit! The kids did there recital, and then had a sing-a-long session. They, along with many musicians, performed lots of Christmas songs and let the crowd sing along. There also a bake sale, and Santa came in to take pictures with the kids! It was a blast!
