We hope you've all had a great week!  Here is some wonderful news - Landon Davis' heart surgery went well, and he is recovering. Please continue to keep him in your thoughts and prayers! And if you need another reason to smile check out the picture of Wells Teacher Sandy Alston Morgan who had a student ask her to take a school picture with him. One of our favorite things!

Shout Outs! 
1. Staff at Lee Woodard Elementary
From Lee Woodard Curriculum Facilitator Latoya Harvey: "Many thanks to the Vick staff for your support and dedication during Math Night. I am very fortunate to work with such a dedicated and diligent group of people who touch the lives of our students in every area! You guys are the best!"

2. Djimon Bailey, eighth-grader, Darden Middle

Djimon was one of 30 players across the country and 10 in North Carolina selected to attend Point Guard College recently in Charlotte. This elite program is held across the country and tests players on their basketball knowledge and skills.  

3. Fifth-graders at Vinson-Bynum Elementary
These students recently visited Barton College with Art Teacher Demetrius Smith. They met Professor Maureen O'Neill, and she introduced them to Italian Sculptor Enzo Torcoletti. He showed the students how to manipulate clay and make their own sculptures. 

4. Wilson Police Department (WPD)

From Science Lab Teacher Bridgette Akins: "A huge Thank You to the staff and administration at ECE for their patience and flexibility while we worked out a science lab schedule. The lab is off to a great start in its first year because of the efforts of everyone at ECE! I look forward to a year of fun and exciting science!"

7. Warm Coat Drive at Hunt High
The AVID I students at Hunt are organizing "Warriors for Warmth" - their first community service project where they are collecting clean, gently used coats to share with those less fortunate in our community.

8. Chorus Programs at Beddingfield, Fike and Hunt High
Students in the choruses at our three comprehensive high schools attended the East Carolina University (ECU) Choral Invitational Workshop on Oct. 28. The students gave excellent performances and had the chance to work with ECU's new Choral Director Dr. James Franklin. We are fortunate to have three great chorus teachers - Luke Hancock (Beddingfield), Kathy Sherrod (Fike) and Andrew Childers (Hunt). 

9. Cynthia Hardy, fifth-grade teacher, Winstead Elementary 
The staff and parents at Winstead would like to thank Ms. Hardy for her creativity and commitment to teaching students about different cultures. This is her fourth year organizing Western Day where students have the opportunity to learn about western culture (as in cowboys/girls), ride a horse, enjoy a mechanical bull and visit a petting zoo. Thanks also to Principal Tracy Joyner for supporting this event, Beddingfield High Teacher Reuben Ledbetter for demonstrating an old fashioned spinning wheel and Wilson's 4H Club for teaching students how to milk a model cow. 

10. Natalie Mercer and Suzanne Colbert, WCS instructional technology facilitators
From Fourth-grade Teacher Sarah Ramos: "I would like to thank Ms. Mercer and Ms. Colbert for going above and beyond. They recently helped my students make a weather report and came to our class several times to assist. My students and I think both of these ladies are Vick-torious!"
