    Pioneer Day

    On Friday, June 7th, 2019, the first, second, and third grade classes participated in Pioneer Day. This event took place in order to help celebrate the last novel that all three grades were reading. The first grade read Little House in the Big Woods, the second grade read Little House on the Prairie, and the third grade read Farmer Boy. All three of these books are based during the 1870s and 1880s as settlers were moving west, and they are all written by the same author, Laura Ingalls Wilder.

  • Students Compete in State Spelling and Geography Bees

    In her second year in a row competing in the Whyoming State Spelling Bee, 7th Grade Paschall McDaniel received 2nd place in the competition, taking home a trophy, a goody basket, and a cash prize. She represented JHCA and spelled alongside students from across the state, and it lasted 13 rounds--the longest in Wyoming state history! 

    The following week, 8th Grade Cotter Friess competed in the State Geography Bee. He was one of two representatives from Jackson and about 45 students statewide. Cotter's final question was "True or False, Washington D.C. is East of Santiago, Chile." If you said True, you would be incorrect, just like Cotter!

    Good Job Paschall and Cotter representing the Jackson Hole Classical Academy!
