In the Spotlight: Nov. 21, 2011

Students
Evan Hood
Evan Hood, Class of 2013, AKA "Mad Scientist" in the slime lab, worked a slime booth at the Tully Elementary School Fall Festival on Oct. 21. Using borax, water, glue and green food coloring, he helped the kids create green slime, which they proudly displayed in Ziploc bags. Tully is an accelerated programs magnet school where more than 90 percent of the school children receive free or reduced price lunches. The money raised during the festival will help provide much needed classroom supplies and help fund field trips for Tully's students. The Tully school kids loved Hood and the slime!
