The Marshall University HATS program recently visited Fort Gay PK8 for a special lesson with the 7th grade class. The HATs program teamed up with members of the Japanese community for a lesson on Japanese culture. Students learned a little bit about the countries language, geography, tea ceremony, and music! The lesson was wonderful, and the students enjoyed learning more about another culture. through the language, geography, the tea ceremony and music. I think the students that a magical time and everyone was so impressed with them. We were also very excited to find out FGPK8 was the pilot for the program on Wayne County.

East Lynn Elementary recently finished up an after-school coding camp! To host the camp, the school received a $2,000 Country Roads Codes grant through the WVDE. For three days, 15 students and their families took part in the camp where they learned how to code a computer game character. This activity allowed students to collaborate with fellow students and their families while working through various stages of the project. The grant also provided enough funding for two STEM kits and two student-friendly coding books for each student who attended the camp. Thank you to the WVDE for providing the grant money, and to all of the parents/guardians who attended the coding camp with their students!

Four years ago, Rhonda Adams, a teacher at Wayne Elementary, lost her son Colt. At the time of his passing, Colt was a student at Wayne High School where he was known for always helping others. To honor her son’s memory and his love of giving back, Rhonda established a program called Colt’s Season of Giving. The purpose of this mission is to raise money to assist the homeless in the Wayne County area. This year, the WES Leadership Team asked students and staff to donate $1 to help raise money for the 2024 Colt’s Season of Giving…and the WES community delivered, raising $400. The school’s 5th grade Leadership Team, along with Ms. Adams and Mrs. Criswell, recently went to Wal-Mart to purchase items to distribute to people in need. Thank you, Ms. Adams for continuing Colt’s memory with this mission, and thank you to all who donated to make this year’s Colt’s Season of Giving a successful one.
