  • Chapter 10: A rousing finish to Civil War story

    This is this is the 10th and final in a series of literacy enhancement articles that appear biweekly in The Sentinel-News.

     

    The weather was perfect for the Civil War reenactment. The Barkstreet Band was introduced, and we took the stage.

    Shelby students on Bellarmine dean's list

  • In the class

    Roberto Avila Pena read softly to himself about “It’s a Group” – learning that a group of bees is a swarm, a group of whales is a pod, and a group of kids is a class. To figure out the word “swarm,’ he broke the word apart and sounded out ‘sw’ and then was prompted to look at the remaining letters that were the name of a part of his body...he smiled when he said “swarm.”
