Submitted by Tami Allen

What's that sound coming down the hallway? It's the beating of an African drum - This week, the first graders at AES have been learning about African culture. Teachers, Mr. Thomas and Mrs. Garretson, made this exciting for their students by dressing in authentic African clothes and bringing in food and various items from Africa. The students had a wonderful time.

Arnoldsburg School held an appreciation gathering Friday, April 30th to recognize all those who contributed materials and time to make our school makeover such a success. Staff and students worked on several inside and outside projects to help beautify our school. This was done in response to the West Virginia Make It Shine initiative.

AES would like to thank the following people and businesses - Grantsville Foodland; Sims Greenhouse, Palestine; Tri-Star Wholesale, Marietta; Houchin's Rentals; service personnel Joe Taylor, Kenny McCumbers, Roger Chenoweth, Rick Trites, Richard Parsons, and Kevin Boak; PTO and parent volunteers Missy King, Lorie Bailey, Betty Ellison, Stephanie Allen, and Sheila Hall; Calhoun-Gilmer Career Center, Paul Parsons and Bryan Sterns; Hardmans Supply, Grantsville; Roger Propst; and Rick Sampson. We would also like to thank Mrs. Dotti Nemitz, paraprofessional at AES, for coordinating this project.
