Happy New Year! 2015 is here and we are all glad to be back in school.
During our “Sparkles and Shivers” unit our children have enjoyed dressing up in coats, hats, mittens, scarves and gloves found in the dramatic play areas of each classroom.
The “snow” and ice introduced in the water play areas was a tremendous hit. The children made many new discoveries weighing, measuring and splashing in the ice.
Ms. Deby’s class had a great time eating their delicious “snowball soup” and reading the book of the same title with the Mercer Mayer characters.

It is a leading cause of disability, preventing Americans from working and enjoying family activities.

Coming of age on Driskill Mt.

Amaya, Derek.jpg

This feeling only happens on a few occasions.
Some may feel it more than others, and some may go a whole lifetime unable to feel its sensation.
It can only be described as one that sucks the life out of you, yet gives you more life than you’ve ever dreamed.
Your birth, your first ball game, your first time exploration, your first love, your first heartbreak, holding on to your high school diploma and receiving your college degree are where many may have had this feeling.
It’s a burning passion deeply ingrained in our bodies.
I recently felt this feeling again.

Education, military service, family and faith, can all be used to describe longtime resident of Lincoln Parish Virgil Orr.

Orr who will turn 92 years old later this week, said his age is mind-boggling.

“I’m fortunate to get to the point where I am,” he said.

During his career, Orr served as a vice president of academic affairs at Louisiana Tech University, and as a state representative.

A family filled with two daughters, four grandchildren and eight great grandchildren, Orr and his wife Myrtis have had a happy 70 years together.
