National School Lunch Week allows us to recognize the dedication of our school nutrition department and educate parents and students about the benefits of our lunch program. Mrs. Cochran and Mrs. Knox’s classes have been studying Light. Students experimented with “Mystery Beads” to see how light helps us see. Students observed the beads in the classroom, and then outside in the Sun and recorded the changes in their Science Notebooks. How cool is that?

WCES is no different when it comes busy as a bee. They have had so many exciting things going on for the children and the staff. Principal, Dr. Steven Rouse, has been emphasizing the importance of attendance. Mrs. Gloria Graddy was the winner of a $100 Amazon gift card for having perfect attendance for the month of September. All staff members who had perfect attendance were entered into a drawing. Along with staff being recognized, three lucky students were also! They were the grand prize winners from the September Perfect Attendance Incentive. The students were given the choice of a brand new bicycle or a gift card to their favorite store or restaurant. One chose the new bicycle, one chose to go shopping at JC Penny and one chose to take the family out to eat at Golden Corral! How awesome is that? Congratulations to both Mrs. Graddy and these students on a job well done. The administrative staff is asking for your help. Please take the time to fill out the school climate survey. WCES strives daily to give you and your child an educational experience that is not only academically rewarding but also one which will ensure your child will fondly remember their elementary school years.

Elegance Doesn’t Have To Be Expensive

Getting ready to get rid of those empty wine bottles? Don’t throw them out! Those empty wine bottles can be used to create a beautiful Fall centerpiece. Just spray paint a few wine bottles white, and then spray the middles with orange and the bottoms with yellow, and you are on your way. Add artificial or real flowers or colorful foliage to create a centerpiece your friends will envy.

It’s A Pumpkin Kinda Thing

This is the time of year when people love to eat pumpkin. The Council on Aging strives to keep their senior citizens healthy and active. Each month they give their senior center participants fun facts on nutrition and exercise. This month they have focused on pumpkins. People eat pumpkins because they taste delicious in hundreds of recipes. If that’s not enough to convince you to eat more, consider the fact that they are also nutritious. And if you need even more convincing, be advised that pumpkins are good for your health. Here are some uses of pumpkins in healthcare or yesterday and today that may be surprising. Pumpkins were believed to help eliminate freckles. They were once used as a remedy for snake bites. A number of facial and anti-wrinkle creams include pumpkin. Did you know that pumpkins have zero cholesterol and they are really low in salt? Pumpkins are low in fat and calories and full of vitamins. They contain beta carotene which helps reduce the risk of certain types of cancer and they lower the risk of heart disease. Pumpkin seeds help to reduce the risk of prostate cancer. And something I did not realize is the pumpkins is made up of 90% of water. So I guess we all need to start eating more pumpkin. Thank you Council on Aging for these healthy nutrition facts.

After college, Chris worked for the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension Service as a county Agriculture/Natural Resources agent in Toombs County.

Georgia Peanut Commission to Promote Peanuts with Annual Event Oct. 16-20

The Georgia Peanut Commission and Georgia Bankers Association will join forces Oct. 16-20, 2017, to promote the 41st annual Georgia Peanut Bank Week. Financial institutions and local banks across the state will offer a tribute to Georgia’s 3,400 peanut farm families and the sustainability they provide to Georgia’s state and local economies. The 2017 theme, “Peanuts: Sustaining Georgia’s Rural Economy,” will showcase the sustainability peanuts provide on and off the farm, as well as highlight the fact Georgia peanuts contribute more than $1.3 billion annually to the state’s economy; a contribution that helps maintain Georgia’s largest industry: agriculture. “We’re excited to continue Georgia Peanut Bank Week for the forty-first year and salute peanut farmers,” Armond Morris, chairman of the Georgia Peanut Commission said. “This promotion is a great way to highlight all peanuts have to offer our communities across the state.” The annual promotion takes place during an opportune time of the year: peanut harvest. In 2016, Georgia peanuts were planted on more than 720,000 acres throughout Georgia and accounted for nearly 50 percent of peanut production in the United States. Peanuts were planted in more than 75 of Georgia’s 159 counties with an average yield of more than 3,900 pounds per acre. The Georgia Peanut Commission invites everyone to visit a participating bank to show support for Georgia’s peanut farmers, as well as the banking industry. Peanuts, recipe cards and other promotional material will be available during the week of Oct. 16-20 at participating financial institutions.

GA Partnership for Excellence in Education names Fall 2017 College Access Grant Winners: Six Chambers of Commerce will use funds to encourage post-secondary education

The Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education today selected six chambers of commerce as winners of the Fall 2017 College Access Grant. These $3,000 mini-grants to local chambers of commerce are granted to leverage their visibility, voice, and influence in efforts to recruit more high school graduates – especially low-income – to enroll in college, and encourage more adults to return to college.
“We know from research that 60% of job postings today require at least an associate’s degree,” said Dr. Steve Dolinger, president of the Georgia Partnership. “We are excited to see how these six chambers of commerce use these grant funds to encourage high school students and adults to further their education. Successfully completing high school and some form of post-secondary education will benefit individuals and their families. These individual benefits then add to the health of the communities in which they live and ultimately accrue benefits across the state.”
 
Fall 2017 College Access Grant Winners
Carroll County Chamber of Commerce
Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce
Lee County Chamber of Commerce
Milledgeville-Baldwin County Chamber of Commerce
Roberta-Crawford County Chamber of Commerce
Sylvester-Worth County Chamber of Commerce
 
Examples of how previous chamber of commerce grant winners used funds include: Facilitated a College Education Matters event for high school students, adults, and veterans who would benefit from continuing their education, Funded CNA certification exams for technical college students who could then pursue further education in nursing, Brought local students pursuing post-secondary education back to town to speak with high school upperclassmen about continuing their education and organized a 9th grade pinning ceremony, a college visit for upperclassmen, a High School Career Day, and guest speakers events. “The College Access Grant was the perfect source for assisting Carroll County in reaching the underserved populations who are needing an extra push to return to school,” shared Donna Armstrong-Lackey, senior vice president of the Carroll County Chamber. “Our previous award allowed us to introduce many local and area resources to help them return to school, and in turn, gain valuable skills to be productive additions to our labor force.” Karen Rackley, president/CEO of the Sylvester-Worth Chamber of Commerce added, “The Sylvester-Worth County Chamber understands the importance of an educated community and the impact that education has on Economic Development. We are continuously working to find ways to support our school system. We feel the College Access Grant allows us a great opportunity to partner with our school system and gives us one more tool in our toolbox to help achieve success.” The application for the Spring 2018 College Access Grant will be available soon.
