The inside story

Meet Fourth-Grader, Mackenzie Hunniecutt
If you walk into the fourth-grade wing on a Monday at Lava Ridge Elementary, you'll notice a student doing some of the teaching. Ten-year-old Mackenzie Hunniecutt spends her lunch recess one day a week teaching some of her fellow students American Sign Language.

Kyla Wilson will dance the lead role in the Nutcracker
The Nutcracker ballet has been a longtime tradition in Kyla Wilson's life—the 10-year-old has either watched or danced in it every year since she was three, when her sister, Shayla, started ballet. The dancing bug hit Wilson hard, and now the two of them dance at the Central Oregon School of Ballet.
