  • Hounddogs at Clear Creek

    Children in Jennifer Gilbert’s class at Clear Creek Elementary used their hands as big ears while singing their class song about being hound dogs....because they are always sniffing out ways to learn. The lyrics were to the tune of Elvis Presley’s “You Ain’t Nothin’ But a Hound Dog.” The rock-n-roll singer would have been proud how the children sang but more so because of their literacy and thinking lesson on “metacognition.” Enjoying the music were Principal Karen Downs and Superintendent James Neihof.
