Wow! It's almost time for our Winter Break. It just seems that we started our school year and we are now almost at our mid-way point. Things are rolling right along. Recently, our computer lab assistant, Ms. Sherrika Fogg resigned to pursue a career in the private business sector. We will miss Ms. Fogg, and wish her best in her new endeavor. Ms. Latoya Alston who previously was a kindergarten assitant will now be working as our Computer Lab Assistant. To fill Ms. Alston's vacant position, Ms. Nichole Pitchford was hired as our Kindergarten assitant. In addition, Mr. Greg Holmes has been hired as our Music Teacher. We welcome our new staff to the school and Ms. Alston to her new position.
On Friday, December 4, our second and third graders participated in a stay at school field trip with the Morehead Planetarium. The Morehead Planetarium brought their mobile planetarium and set it up in our multi-purpose room. The students thoroughly enjoyed a field trip experience without ever having to set foot off of our campus.
On Tuesday night, December 8, our school held its regularly scheduled PTA meeting. Kindergarten and First Grade Students presented a superb program that included carols and poems. A special thanks is extended to our kindergarten and first grade teachers for working so hard to get this program ready for us.
Wednesday, December 16, our school will host a Parent Luncheon for second and third grade students and their parents. So parents come on out and join your children for lunch. Our Winter break will begin on December 18 at 1 pm. Students will return to school on January 6. Please enjoy a safe and restful break.
