Spring Break Not Interrupted

from the "Pickett County Press" (Feb. 24th)...

"Pickett County students and teachers have one more day to make up from the snow days that went over the limit. On Monday, Feb. 21st school was originally scheduled to be closed in observance of Presidents' Day, but in order to get in a makeup day, school was in session. This left one day and was decided to add an extra day on at the end of the year, which kept Spring Break to still be as planned during the week of April 18th - 22nd."

Valentine's Day....

There was lots of activity taking place today at school. On top of all the Valentine's Day festivities one 3rd grade class had a show and tell. Ethan brought stilts that his dad made and showed us his skills in the hallway. He told me he had been practicing for about 2 years and I must say the practice has paid off, he did an awesome job!!

Here are a few pictures of everyone enjoying their Valentine's Day gifts, parties, and a little of the warmer weather outside...
