Sixty-five Marine Corps JROTC students from Granbury High School and Crossland Ninth Grade Center ventured to Harlingen for a four-day exercise at the Marine Military Academy to familiarize cadets with military lifestyle.

Activities included an obstacle course, high ropes course, low ropes course, combat fitness test, close order drill, pugil sticks and paint ball. The group hiked 3 miles on the final night to an Iwo Jima statue that served as the basis for the famed memorial in the Washington D.C. area.


Granbury elementary students celebrated reading during Read Across America earlier this month. The youngsters recognized the national celebration held each March on Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Community members and school officials joined the Seussian celebration by reading the author’s books or other related books to the students.

Third-grade students at Nettie Baccus Elementary School recently got a lesson in economics and the free enterprise system. Market Day followed a six-week long economic unit.

Students created items to sell and then marketed to their peers with the hopes of making the best profit. Students learned and applied the principles of advertising, supply and demand, economic choice and marketing techniques. Following the sale, the students figured their gross earnings and total profit after they repaid their start-up loans.
