  • Sharing the Love on Lockers at Taylor Middle

    When students arrived at Taylor Middle School on Valentine’s Day and made their way to their lockers, each one found a construction-paper heart taped on his or her locker’s metal door expressing words of affirmation and love. Special education teacher Jen Linthicum spearheaded the effort, enlisting the aid of several teachers and staff, who wrote positive words on the hearts such as “You are loved,” “You are awesome,” and “You make a difference.” Every assigned locker in the building sported a heart for the early-morning welcome.

  • Student 'Wax Museum' at Walter Elementary

    Second graders at Walter Elementary School turned to wax, so to speak, as the stars of the second grade’s annual Famous Americans Wax Museum Jan. 23. The students had researched and prepared a project on a famous American who has made a positive contribution to our country. On the day of the Wax Museum, they dressed as their famous Americans, and each set up a “booth.” The famous Americans sat motionless, wax-like, holding a pose until a visiting adult or student pressed the button at their booth to free them to move and to recite a short informational report on the famous American they were portraying in wax.
