Mr. Jackson's Industrial Tech class took this antique table and chairs that he found curbside last summer and sanded them down, re-stained and refinished them and they turned out awesome. Mr. Jackson and his daughters recovered the chair seats at home. The set was donated When Pigs Fly last Wednesday.

As flu season begins, we know it can be difficult to decide how long to keep an ill child home from
school. If your child has a fever over 100 degrees, is vomiting, or has diarrhea, her or she should stay
home until they no longer have the symptom for 24 hours without the use of medication. Let's work together to keep our schools healthy!
