  • A Seusstacular Time!

    Our parents and community members had a Seusstacular time at our Parent Advisory Council Meeting on March 2, 2015. The meeting was filled with activities to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ Birthday! After a read-aloud of Bartholomew and the Oobleck, we used corn starch and water to make our very own green Oobleck! The parents were amazed that it is not a liquid nor is it a solid – its Oobleck! We created our own pillows and learned another great reading strategy that focuses the child on the sound spelling before reading the word. Participants were encouraged to take a look at the reading adoption materials on display at the Board Office and at each school site. The next meeting is April 13, 2015 at the Phoenix Center in Welch.

  • Chinese to Be Offered to McDowell County High School Students

    On March 11, Mount View and River View High School students had an opportunity to learn more about Chinese culture, history, and the language from two teachers from China who currently work in WV schools teaching Chinese. The presentation comes to us in the light of offering Chinese I in both high schools next year online, taught by a teacher from China. Chinese is the 4th most frequently spoken language in the United States, and our students will have a great opportunity to learn this increasingly popular language.
