RES Loves OUR Grandparents!

ringgold elementary grandparents day

On October 3, 2014, Ringgold Elementary School third grade students welcomed their grandparents to their school.  They introduced them to their teachers, shared their artwork and class work, and then they enjoyed a delicious lunch together in the school cafeteria.  Before leaving, students toured the school with their grandparents, had their picture made, and visited the book fair.  At RES, grandparents are a treasure, and we were thrilled to have such a huge crowd spend the morning and afternoon with us!

Grandparent's Day at Boynton

grandparents day boynton

Grandparents for kindergarten and 5th grade came to Boynton to visit their grandchildren in their classrooms.  They had a wonderful lunch in the Boynton cafeteria and enjoyed getting to see what the children are doing at school so far this year.  It was a great day and the kindergarten and 5th grade students really enjoyed getting to show their grandparents their classrooms.

Fort Oglethorpe hospital has high hopes

The prescription to restore Hutcheson Medical Center’s financial health has never been as simple as “take two aspirin and call me in the morning.”

To heal Brobdingnagian boo-boos caused by previous administrations has required tourniquets rather than Band-Aids to staunch the flow of red ink, but the hospital is showing signs of recovery.
