Sweet Reward

By Staff | May 13, 2010

Fifth grade students in Jenifer Thayer’s homeroom at Emmetsburg Middle School had a good laugh on Wednesday when one of their own, Caitlyn Manwarren, pushed a whipped cream pie into the face of their teacher. Mrs. Thayer made a deal with her students that if they showed at least one year’s growth on the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills, someone would get to throw a pie in her face. With that as their motivation, the students showed more than one year’s worth of growth! The fifth grade paparazzi were on hand to capture the moment with their cell phone cameras. – Lori Hall photo
