Pearl City, Illinois — The Pearl City First grade had a wedding of the letters Q (played by Abigail Ditsworth) and U (played by Ty Gerber) on October 23, 2017. They learned that the letters q and u stick together in all words.
To honor Q and U the boys were “quarterbacks” and the girls were queens. To celebrate they had a wedding ceremony followed by a reception and dance. Of course they performed the traditional wedding “chicken dance.” The guests (students) brought gifts for Q and U, canned goods which will be donated to the Pearl City Food Pantry.
On Sunday October 22nd the Academic Team competed in the Bergstrom’s Stateline Quiz Bowl in Rockford. It will be aired on December 2nd. Pearl City Varsity Academic team. Cade Voss, Andrew Lorig, Kayla Niehaus, Amber Baumgartner, Kyle Cooper, Matt Werkheiser, and Gunner Cassell.
