For high school students in Lincoln Parish, the school day typically involves seven different classes with seven different teachers and seven different sets of expectations. This year, however, Simsboro High School students will only have to deal with only four classes each day.
Ricky Durrett, principal of the K-12 school, explained that the school’s oldest students are now on a 4-by-4 block schedule. They will take four 90-minute classes each semester with a switch at half term.
The kindergarten classes exchanged Valentine’s Day cards with each other. We would like to thank Trinity Church for our snacks on Valentine’s Day. In class we are learning to sound out and spell words. We are writing sentences using our “Being a Writer” program. The teachers would like the parents to read a book to their child each night.
