Mayor Edward Jones said when completed, the sidewalks will impact not only the community, but the university as well.

We are having so much fun learning tons of new things. We have enjoyed our holiday break and got really cool things for Christmas, too.
Before we got out for Christmas, we did book studies on “Santa’s Stuck” and “The Polar Express.” They were really good books that we all enjoyed.
