Serving Up Good Manners
Students in Val Doucleff's fifth grade class at West Elementary enjoyed a pizza luncheon with their parents to celebrate the end of the school year.

Put Your Best Foot Forward!
Eunice Smith was recently rewarded for their recycling efforts at the Madison County Earth Day Celebration. Eunice Smith Teacher and Recycling Coordinator, Lisa Stubits, shared that the school received 2nd place out of all Madison County schools in collecting 1,326 pairs of old shoes. Shoes are then donated to the Shoeman Water Project which provides drinking water for people in impoverished countries. Andrew Burnside's fifth grade class at the school collected an astonishing 628 pairs which included soliciting donations of blemished shoes from area shoe stores. The school also collected tab tops this year to benefit the Ronald McDonald House. Great job!
