Well, week number two of the school year has already flown by. I talked to a few of the teachers and administrators after the first week and everyone said that things seemed to be going well. Enrollment is still holding at over 300 students and the district is now in need of a second Kindergarten teacher. We currently have two Pre-K classes but now we have 29 Kindergarten students enrolled and will have to split the class. If you know of anyone qualified for the job please tell them to contact Mrs. Fox, the elementary principal.
My cousin, Hunter Darrow, that recently graduated from lineman college starts his new job at Farmers Electric Cooperative on Tuesday, Sept. 6. I’m proud he was able to get a job close to home.
