With squeals of excitement, Page fifth-graders covered their eyes looking up to the sky tracking the flight paths of their rockets. Some ran for cover as the rockets fell back to the ground – bouncing off the pavement, crashing down through the limbs of a tree or even landing on the roof of the school.
Page Elementary Principal Gregg Bruno laced up his running shoes, put on his yellow reflective vest and set out on a morning run Friday. It’s nothing unusual for the man who runs 4 to 8 miles daily during the week and 10 to 16 miles a day on weekends.
Diane Knight used to avoid going to a library whenever she could – so much so that her high school English teacher had to walk her to the library one day to make sure she actually went in. Hard to believe since she’s made the Page Elementary library her “home” since 1988.
Thornapple Kellogg Elementary music programs received a boost from three grants this year.
Sisters attending Page Elementary School practiced giving to others when they chose to write a grant to help Family Promise of Barry County and make sure the kids who stay there have outdoor play items. Their efforts paid off with a grant from the Youth Advisory Council of Barry Community Foundation to help homeless families in Barry County.
Brayden Wilcox and Khloey Hallifax didn’t jump up and head outside with their classmates when it was time for recess. Instead, the two Page Elementary fourth graders remained enthralled in listening to bestselling author Max Brallier provide writing tips. They wanted to soak up all the advice they could as young writers.
Wearing hard hats and TK facial coverings and with shovels in hand, students from McFall, Lee and Page elementary schools, tossed up a bit of dirt to officially break ground on the first phase of the district’s $42.8 million bond projects.
