Weiner Elementary students show off their school, work

WEINER, AR (KAIT) -

Students at Weiner Elementary School decided to give the public a look at what they've been up to this school year.

The school opened up its doors and held an open house for the public from 7 a.m. until noon Wednesday.

Throughout the morning, students gave tours of their classrooms and provided explanations about what they've been learning and doing this year.

“I'm telling them about Spanish class and what 5th and 6th grade are doing to learn more,” 6th grader John Phillip Matthews said. “And how they're using technology in the morning for spelling city and things like that.”

Another 6th grade student, Anna Walker, discussed technology in the classroom also.

“Well, I've got to tell people about the garden and the math and science classrooms and how we do math and science with our computers,” Walker said.

Principal Pam Hogue says this event was a great opportunity to let the public know what the students spend school days doing.

“They're showing them the use of technology,” Hogue said. “We're a one-to-one school now and so they're showing them what we're doing with that. They were showing them the different things we've been studying.”

The open house was sponsored by the Weiner School Children's Endowment.

    Thanksgiving is a time to be with loved ones and enjoy good food, but since that is not an option for everyone, members of the Jonesboro community came together to make sure as many people as possible were fed.
