  • WMS students learn to LOVE reading

    Bethany Findley never really cared for reading.

    The Williamstown Middle School sixth grader would rather watch TV than turn the pages of a novel.

    “I used to not be able to read that well,” Findley said. “I used to be one of the lowest people in the class in reading.”

    That has changed since she joined a specialized reading class taught by Kasey Kennedy with assistance by

    Carleen Ficker, Response to Intervention (RIT) coordinator for Williamstown elementary and middle schools.

  • Stolen snowman caper heads south, in a hurry

    (Editor’s note: The following story is partly satirical, partly true and some facts may have been embellished.)

    Christmas-time is not the same right now for Sandy Cook.

    The Williamstown High School instructional assistant is feeling like she was given a lump of coal in her stocking.
    Cook brought a decorative snowman to bring holiday cheer to the halls of Williamstown, but only after a couple days, he was gone.

    The snowman had vanished without a trace, leaving behind only a note pleading for Cook to hurry to save him.

  • Williamstown to use iPads in class

    Paradise Forbes was skeptical when she learned several Williamstown Independent School classrooms would be getting iPad computers.

    She was concerned the tablet would be a novelty that would die off quickly with students.

    That all changed with one visit to Woodford County High School, which introduced the device to students earlier this year.

    Forbes loved what she saw and can’t wait to get started in her social studies classroom after Christmas break.

  • FEEDING THE NEED

    MacKenzie Tucker, a junior at Grant County High School, is thankful for the blessings she has in life. She realized that there are others who may not be as fortunate as she is.

    Building a Wall of Food for less fortunate families in the community.
