Working for our children: Simple

School has been back in session a few weeks now, and kids and teachers are in routines and working hard. All students can learn, but some need more assistance than others. After almost 30 years as an educator, I have come to the conclusion that everyone in a community should have an interest in the education of our students. I have some insights and suggestions that might assist all of us in helping students succeed. It truly does “take a village,” and all members of the village can play a role in the education of our future leaders.

My thinking place

I have spent a great deal of time near water these last few days. There is something about waning light at summer’s end, or maybe it is something deeper that I do not yet understand, but I am drawn there. Driving by without pulling in for a few moments is not an option for me.

Whippets too much for Cats

FOREST––The Kosciusko Whippets hit the road for the first time in 2014 with a bitter taste in their mouths left over from the 27-14 loss last week to the 6A Grenada Chargers.  Many missed opportunities left the Whippets with the mindset that they very easily could have been 4-0 instead of the 3-1, which is the record they took to Forest to play the 2-2 Bearcats.  After the dust settled in Forest Friday night, the Whippets came away with a convincing 34-12 win to improve to 4-1 on the year.
