History Comes Alive for McAnally 6th Graders
Last week, students from Mrs. Hale's 6th grade Social Studies class had the unique opportunity to meet and listen to Captain Emmett Tiner. Please click here to hear his story
Emmett Tiner is a World War 2 Veteran who was born on September 28, 1915 in Jones County, Texas. He graduated from Texas A&M and became an agriculture science teacher. He signed up with the army in 1940 as part of the first peacetime draft. Emmett thought he would just be in the army for a year and complete his peacetime service. Then Pearl Harbor was attacked on December 8, 1941. Emmett knew he was not going home. For the next six years, from June 19, 1940 until March 1946, he was a member of the 7th Calvary Reconnaissance Troop for the 7th Infantry Division eventually being promoted to captain. The 7th Reconnaissance Troop travelled the world fighting for the United States. They started in the Aleutian Islands in Alaska, the Marshall Islands, Leyte Island, Philippines, Okinawa, Japan, and finally Korea. Emmett was awarded the Purple Heart, the Silver Star, and his unit was awarded 2 Distinguished Unit Citations.
Monday, May 25th will be a school holiday for staff and students. Classes will resume Tuesday, May 26th.

Red Nose Day - Friday, May 21st
Red Nose Day is a campaign dedicated to raising money for children and young people living in poverty by simply having fun and making people laugh. The inaugural Red Nose Day will be held in the US on May 21st, 2015. People across the country will come together to have fun and raise funds and awareness. It is sponsored by the nonprofit organization Comic Relief. In the UK, Red Nose Day has been going for 30 years and is an inspiring cultural phenomenon that unites people from all walks of life in the interest of saving and changing lives across the globe. Since the first Red Nose Day, Comic Relief has raised over £1 billion to help people in need around the world.
The first Red Nose Day is being celebrated in the US this year on May 21st. Because of Six Flags, McAnally will participate on Friday, May 22nd. We will collect $1 from students who want to participate in wearing a red nose and donate the money to Center of Hope. Hoping this will be a fun way to raise money for a great cause. Red noses can be purchased at Wal-Greens for $1 and .50 is donated to the cause or students can simply paint their noses red.
Fun Day SignupsWe are very excited to announce our annual McAnally FUN DAY will be held Friday, May 29th! The kids have worked hard this year and are deserving of this special day. This day consists of relays, competitions, and a play put on Mrs. Burchill!
The students will participate in the different activities based on their grade level. Sixth grade will participate in the outdoor FUN DAY events from 9:00-11:00 with the kickball tournament championship rounds starting at 1:00. Fifth grade will participate in the outdoor FUN DAY events from 11:00-1:00 with the kickball tournament championship rounds starting at 3:00. Both grades will eat lunch immediately after they come inside from the outdoor events. After lunch each grade will head to the cafeteria to watch Peter Pan put on by Mrs. Burchill and some of our very own McAnally students.
WE NEED YOUR HELP! We need parental help with our different event areas as well as donations of mini water bottles and some supplies for our outdoor events. The volunteer spots are broken into 1 to 2 hour shifts. Please visit http://vols.pt/pqVFe5 to sign up for a spot or multiple spots! We will send you a reminder the week before FUN DAY and an email the day before FUN DAY with your event and all of the information that you will need.
We are so excited and are looking forward to this FUN DAY with your kids! Thank you in advance for your help!
