ELNORA —

The staff also had a session with Daviess County Sheriff’s deputies regarding what to do if an intruder does make entry to a building. Jerrels said he hopes to do more such training.

Staff and students all have been busy. The junior/senior high school principal said several band and choir students attended Solo and Ensemble Contest last weekend and were successful in medaling. FFA students attended the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville Feb. 13 and will be traveling to Mt. Vernon for a leadership contest and Boonville for Envirothon competition. On Feb. 6, junior/senior high students participated in the regional earthquake preparedness drill.

“The talent show was Feb.12,” Jerrels continued. “What a wonderful opportunity for our community. They did a great job, and it was fairly well attended.”

He said the annual Senior Financial Aid Meeting was held Jan. 15 at the high school and was very well attended.

Staff members continue small group training for SLO and Rise Indiana, and several staff members have been or will be attending professional development activities. Elementary students and staff also are keeping busy, according to Principal Jody Berry.

“The math team is preparing for competition at Griffith Elementary,” she said, adding that this year, for the first time, there will be a fourth-grade-only team as well as fifth- and sixth-grade combined team. “So we’re excited about that.”

Berry said the elementary school in the “ISTEP crunch” process. Though teachers prepare their students year round, she explained, Feb. 17-28 is a time to review and refresh. ISTEP+ Applied Skills for grades three through six will be March 4-13; IREAD3 for grade three will be March 18-20; and ISTEP+ Multiple Choice for grades three through six will be April 29 to May 10.

“North Daviess Elementary raised $2,120 for Pennies for Patients, a fundraiser benefiting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society,” Berry continued her report. “And that was in only a week.”
