Shout Outs!
- Huge applause for Debra Simons, WCS Instructional Systems Specialist, for her expertise of Schoolnet. Ms. Simons was asked to be a panel member at a recent NCTIES Conference to share how WCS is using Schoolnet.

- The Speight Middle PTSO wanted to thank the Beddingfield High Culinary Arts program for catering the Teacher Appreciation Luncheon and Eighth-Grade Formal. The food was delicious, the presentation was beautiful and the produce was fresh from Beddingfield's garden. 

- Kudos to Milton Atkinson, WCS behavior support assistant, for all that he does in his role at Beddingfield High, Darden Middle and Wells Elementary. He has made an amazing impact on all the students he works with, and we are grateful!

Forest Hills Middle Chorus Teacher Jeff Germain is an amazing second-year teacher with creative ideas. At the recent concert, he asked Keith Dublin, band director at Hunt High, to bring some of his Jazz Band members to play with the Forest Hills students. 

First-graders at Lucama Elementary collected Care Bags to send to soldiers overseas. Riley Grimes is a first-grader at Lucama and her father, Derrick Cavenaugh, is currently deployed. His troop will receive the gifts.
Lisa Lewis' Multimedia and Webpage Design classes at Hunt High recently designed flyers for a contest to collect canned goods for the Hope Station and Salvation Army. The classes that brought in the most items were Chris Beneck's 3rd block and Rachel McNeill's 4th block. More than 200 cans were collected.

- Earlier this month, students in Cougar Career Clubs at Speight Middle formed a panel to talk with WCS Chief Operations Officer Eric Davis. They shared everything they had learned about careers in Wilson through site visits and guest speakers. Special thanks to Beddingfield High, 3C Manufacturing, Wilson Community College, Wilson Times, Carolina Cabinet Company and Barton College for providing learning opportunities for the students.

- Laura Nelson and Karen Mathison are proud of their fourth-graders at Hearne Elementary for organizing a fundraiser through to provide books for children in Kenya. To date, they have raised close to $500. The students created coin donation containers, posters and ads and also gave presentations to each class. Special thanks to Krystine Cooper, parent, for donating hundreds of hosta plants to be sold for the fundraiser. 

The Hunt High FBLA raised $240 at a recent yard sale where they sold items that were donated by Hunt teachers. Special thanks to the Fike High FBLA and Hunt's Technology Student Association for making donations. 

- Collectively, students in the Microsoft IT Academy at Fike High achieved approximately 393 Microsoft Office Specialist certifications this year! These credentials tell the world that the students demonstrated proficiency in the Microsoft Office programs and joined a global community of distinguished achievers who meet an industry standard in business and information technology.

- Lots of Shout Outs! for New Hope Elementary staff members! Congrats to Richard Martin and Joanne Jackson for Simon Awards, Erin Rollins for identifying the most staff members in baby pictures, Antonnia Carter for implementing a Buddies project, Connie Butterfield for spearheading the Give Five Read Five campaign and collecting 610 books, the SIT for all the morale boosters and Jeanine Kittenger for the beautiful hand mural in the hallway in honor of Sabrina Smith-Epley.
