Me on the Map

Students in Ms. Kuck’s first grade class at Worth County Primary School have been studying where they live in their “Me on the Map” unit. Students brought in pictures and items that represent Sylvester, Worth Co., Georgia, and the USA. Students also worked together to build a 3-D map of Sylvester. In this interactive project, students also learned the importance of working together as a team. Way to go, Ms. Kuck!

Primary School Students Learn About Rocks

Worth County Primary School students in Mrs. Griffis’ class enjoyed exploring rocks last week.  What better way to learn about rocks then with food!  They made a “sedimentary rock” snack to understand how they are formed with layers. Through a science experiment they discovered that most rocks sink, but since pumice rocks have air holes… they will float! Rocks are so much fun!!!! Kudos to Mrs. Griffis for making learning fun!

Don’t Forget to Visit Your Library

It’s almost the end of September which is Library Card sign up month.  The Margaret Jones Public Library staff encourages you to stop by this week and get signed up.  Reading is a great thing and children love to visit the library so be sure to stop by this week.

Snackin’ with Sumner

Sumner City Clerk was all smiles just a few weeks ago when Lady Liberty from Liberty Tax Service popped by to see her hard at work and give her a few snacks.  Milissa Dobbins, Sumner City Hall enjoyed seeing Lady Liberty and was excited that Liberty Tax Service would be having an office soon in Sylvester.

Smiles for Dr. Sauls

Lady Liberty stopped by recently to drop off a few treats for Dr. Sauls and his staff.  Taking care of your teeth is very important to Dr. Sauls and his staff.  They want their patients to know you can enjoy treats and take care of your teeth at the same time.  If you don’t have a regular dentist at this time, give Dr. Sauls office a call and they will be glad to set you up an appointment.  Thank you to Dr. Sauls and his staff for the great job they do!

Banana’s for everyone

Looked who stopped by the Shipp Senior Center and dropped off banana’s for their participants?  You guessed it.  It was Lady Liberty with the community outreach team from Liberty Tax Service.  The outreach team wanted the participants to enjoy National Banana Day with them!  Liberty Tax Service will soon be opening an office in Sylvester and wants to be a vital part of the community.  The outreach team is excited to join in with the community.
