Easter celebration at Leatherwood
All the students and teachers at Leatherwood Elementary had a wonderful Easter Cele-
bration this year. Thanks to the Leatherwood Elem. Middle Grades Unite Club, Mrs. Watts
and Mrs. Asher in the Resource Center. The Unite Students hid plastic candy filled eggs for
students in grades K-3 and special treats for students in grades 4-8. The Unite Club also
provided a pizza party with drinks for the entire school. We thank Mrs. Watts for all the hard
work she had done with the Unite Middle Grade Students. They have done great projects for Eighth Grade Career Day
the students here at our school. We also want to thank our Cafeteria Staff, Linda Halcomb,
Loretta Baker, Nancy Sparkman and Diane Shepherd for letting the K-1 students color their What do you want to be when you grow up? This was one of the questions that were
own Easter Eggs. The kids had a blast! asked of the students when they attended the Leatherwood Elem. Eight Grade Career Day.
The 8th grade students completed their ILP (Individual Learning Profile) and researched
the career of their choice. They made colorful display boards with the information they had
gathered pertaining to their career. Although some of the 8th graders were a little nervous,
they did a fantastic job explaining their careers to the students that came to the Fair. The stu-
dents were very interested in every poster and display at each table. The eight grade students
worked extremely hard on this project and we are very proud of them. Great Job!
Leatherwood Elementary Literacy Night
As students are preparing for summer vacation, playing in the pool, riding their bikes
and playing with friends, their parents are making plans to help them stay on task with their
studies during the long summer break. The Family Resource Center Director, Phyllis Asher,
primary teachers Shanna Kersey, Ashley Shouse, Rebecca Williams and Nora Dalton gath-
ered materials for the parents and students to use. There were lots of educational prizes given
out to the kids and parents that attended. We also had a representative from the Perry County
Public Library Linda Cornett to attend. Linda did crafts with the children and talked to them
about the summer activities offered by the Library. Linda Caudill, one of our retired teachers
also attended the Literacy Night. She gave the parents great ideas of things that they could
use at home to help their children. We hope that all the materials and information that was
provided to the parents will be an asset for our kids.
