Fishing Derby


The annual Hooked on Fishing, Not on Drugs Fishing Derby was held at Moody Pond on Saturday, May 19th. Students enjoyed a day of fun-filled fishing, food, and prizes. Kaylee Church was the top winner reeling in 8.8 lbs. of catfish. This project encourages students to make healthy choices and provides positive alternatives to drug use. The derby was open to all fourth, fifth, and sixth graders at Moody Elementary. The derby is a community project each year with donations received from The Game and Fish Commission, Jefferson County Conservation District, Tackle Box, Sandy Acres, McClelland Consulting Engineers and Brenda’s Portable Toilets.
