    About 1,200 grandparents visited Spencer County Elementary School last week as the school hosted its annual Grandparents Days.

    “It’s very important to us, as a community school, to reach out into the community,” principal Mark Thomas said.

    Grandparents Day was held Tuesday for Kindergartners and fifth-graders, Wednesday for first- and second-graders, and Friday for third- and fourth-graders. The grandparents spent 30 minutes to an hour with their grandchildren in class and then ate lunch with them in the cafeteria.

  • Are you ready for tomorrow? I hope you are looking forward to it, but be honest…is there a little concern there too? We all want that perfect family day, but then none of us have perfect families. So expecting a perfect family day may be setting our sights a little too high.

  • An attitude of gratitude is a powerful thing. It is a powerful thing because it has the ability to change, strengthen and safeguard the hearts of people. During a week when we celebrate the holiday of Thanksgiving, we should also recognize the power of thanksgiving.

    Winners of the recycling bin decorating contest were announced Friday.

  • Don’t jump the gun when it comes to planting spring flowering bulbs this fall. Spring bulbs are best planted once soil temperatures cool to about 55 degrees, so wait until we have had at least two weeks of sweater weather. If it is too cool outside without a jacket, then it’s just right for planting bulbs.

    Bristol Bottoms, Mason Broderick, Landon Drumright, Jackson Finch, Kameron Fowler, Paige Fugate, Jazlyn Huizar, Lochlan Husband, Brian Jeffries, Savannah Kersey, Kyndal Neville, Leelynn Olges, Cali Opell, Landon Peers, Alexis Purvis, Mallory Rattliff, Ayden Rose, Robert Ruthstrom Caiden Sloan, Jade Slucher, Angel Watts
