This month at Lincoln Elementary, the young Patriots have been learning about RESPECT as part of their Character Counts curriculum. In conjunction with that theme, numerous veterans were on hand as guest speaker Sgt. Eric Page addressed the students about respect for the flag and respect for each other. The students received instruction on "saluting" as well from Sgt. Page, a gesture in the military signifying respect.
The annual Candy Bar Election took place Thursday at Washington Elementary. Perhaps one of the "SWEETEST" elections you could ever participate in and more than likely be at least content with either winner...in other words, not a typical election. :)

Industrial Arts is an educational program which features fabrication of objects in wood or metal using a variety of hand, power, or machine tools. A visit to Mr. Ryan Elder's classes on Wednesday at WHS found many interesting and practical projects in progress. No student encouragement is needed - when the bell rings the students get down to business. A couple of classes were building tool caddies, others worked on numerous woodwork items including tables, outdoor furniture and more.
