The first week of school back from summer vacation always takes a toll on the younger students (and the teachers, too, for that matter).
Well, the two little kindergarteners in this picture were more than exhausted after school on Thursday, as reported by the 8th grade photographer, who said they fell asleep even before the bus got out of town.
I can't image what next week's going to be like with a full five days of school!
As part of the school's PBIS program, teachers and staff wrote inspirational post-its to all the students in elementary, junior high and senior high welcoming them to the 2017-18 school year. That's close to 300 notes, if you're counting.
The school has been participating in PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) for the past six years. One Wednesday each month, students get out at 2 p.m., so staff can meet, discuss and plan around PBIS, including student assemblies.
Now is the time to grab a TC Thunder girls golf shirt if you're interested. Two girls from Bancroft-Rosalie are playing again this year. They are senior Mariah Petersen and junior Paige Peters.
This year, Lyons-Decatur has joined the coop, now bringing the number of schools to three with Pender. Returning again to coach is Bob Rainer of Pender.
Shirts are available in short sleeve, long sleeve, crew sweatshirt and hooded sweatshirt. Orders must be prepaid and can be turned into the B-R school office. Please make checks payable to Pender Public Schools.
Members of Mrs. Henry's science class will be observing the Total Eclipse on Monday morning, with "special" eclipse glasses.
And, depending on their teachers, elementary students will be watching the eclipse online at ncnsportsnow.com. The news channel will provide a border-to-border broadcast from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. throughout Nebraska.
The start of the 97.5 percent totality around the Norfolk area will begin at 11:36 a.m.
