"We are Respectful, We are Responsible, We are Turtle Ready!"
Pierce Elementary School held its first-ever Winter Hop after school Dec. 9 for third, fourth and fifth graders. One of Pierce’s Destination Imagination (DI) Teams, “Prodigious Pickles Go Meow, Meow,” led by team manager/Pierce art teacher Karla Kolb, sponsored the hop to help a charity named Mason’s Toy Box out of Charlottesville, VA, as part of their DI Service Learning Challenge this year. The students on the team, Drew Kolb, Alexa Meriwether, Lillie Ferguson, Ashley Brod, Josh Cooper, and McKenna Cupka, organized the entire event from making all of the games and decorations to deciding how the event would be organized.
It’s time for Fauquier County students to begin thinking about the 2017 Regional Science & Engineering Fairs. Yes, fairs is plural. For the first time, the senior and junior division fairs will be held on different dates. The senior division fair for 9th-12th graders will be held on Saturday, March 11, and the junior division fair for 6th-8th graders will be held on Saturday, April 29.
