Red Lick students get a real up close look at duck, duck, goose

Wednesday wasn’t just an average day for Red Lick Kindergartners.  The students have been studying the migratory pattern of birds. With the help of 2nd grade student, Cade Cunningham, and his grandfather, Jack Shellogg, the Kindergarten classes at Red Lick learned first-hand why ducks and other birds migrate to the North East Texas and South West Arkansas region each year.  
Mr. Shellogg demonstrated with a flashlight and globe how the sun warms the earth pushing the birds towards the southern states.  
As the birds migrate to our region each year, hunting season begins.  With the help of his grandfather, Cade played the calls of various ducks, that are seen in our area, on his iPad.
His grandfather imitated those sounds with his duck calls.  
He was able to demonstrate the calls of Mallards, Teals, Pintails, Widgeons, Wood Ducks, and Gadwalls.  Cade also demonstrated his skills with his wood duck call.

Letters to Santa

Letters to Santa Claus are being published in this week and next week's issues of the Tribune and then sent straight to the North Pole in time for Christmas. We thought we would share a few with you here. They are sure to bring a smile.

In the picture, Santa amd Mrs. Claus were in DeKalb over the weekend, but he is sure to be hard at work getting ready for the big night next week. Special thanks to Lane and Missy Breshears for capturing the spirit of the season.

Dear Santa,
I would like you to get me a big ol pet deer, lots of hunting stuff, a tiger and bear toy. I would also like a big bad wolf toy and lots of movies. I want tinkerbell toys but my daddy says no, so can you bring them when he goes to work.
Love, Braxton Book

Malta students help Nick’s Mission

Malta School students recently held two community service projects.  Many students emptied their piggy banks to help Nick’s Mission.  This is a program that helps children who might not have enough to eat over the weekend and holidays away from school. Students came with large containers of coins while others came with just a handful, but every student helped all they could.  It was amazing to see the out pouring of love from these children.  The Shumakes, who started Nick’s Mission after the death of their son in the flood at Albert Pike, needed a dolly to help carry out $1,300 in coins.
The second project in which the students participated was to bring personal hygiene products to be  presented to the Randy Sam’s Homeless Shelter.  Several large boxes of supplies were collected.
