"Animal Guy" visits Underwood

The Underwood students love having Bob Tarter visit each year. This year, he brought exotic animals from the Rain Forest.  Amanda Davis, kindergarten teacher, actually kissed the frog(see picture below). The kids loved it. Among these were a talking parrot, a snake, a gigantic frog, and a white nosed Coati.  He said his favorite part of his job is aggravating the teachers with his animals. You can click the link below to visit his website and learn more about Mr. Tarter and his animals.






Underwood would like to thank the Rogers Middle School Band for coming to play Christmas songs for us.  We enjoyed singing along. 




A Huge Congrats to our 5th Grade Chess Winner!!

 Owen Griffith


He will represent Underwood at the Renaissance Faire Chess Playoff on Saturday, October 24th.




 We are proud of all of the 5th graders who participated. 





Pre-K Students on "Nursery Rhyme Day"


Mrs. Hines's 4 year old pre-k students dressed up as nursery characters. There were several different costumes, from Humpty Dumpty sitting on a wall to Mary had a little lamb. All of the teachers and students enjoyed this.
