                          Fun times are here!
 
 

  The Outreach students will be traveling to the Governor's School on October 29 and April 1. We will work with the Governor 's School teachers to develop research and conduct science experiments or participate in drama and art activities. Such a fun time!  On April 11, the music and drama students will attend a performance at Buffalo Gap High School by the Theater Department. A workshop will follow.

    We are happy to have Lynn Conyers be here for our art workshops on April 24 and May 6. 

   The Time for Kids magazine is being used this year to complement our guided reading program and to encourage a love for reading.

    Be sure to visit our Music programs and see our gifted students perform this year. We are a talented group here at Craigsville Elementary!
