These students, in Mrs. Emerson's Adinistrative Office Applications & Business Software class at Yulee High School, worked hard to obtain industry certifications in Microsoft Office 2016 Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, Word Expert, and Excel Expert. One way they celebrated their success was by hanging copies of their certificates on their classroom wall. Each student also gets a copy of their certificate for their "brag books". Congratulations!

Rescue Readers Love to Read

Mr. Price & Miss Grubby Toes

On February 14th, Callahan Elementary School celebrated Authors in Schools Day with the author, Eddie Price. Every student received an autographed copy of Little Miss Grubby Toes Steps on a Bee! Mr. Price read the book to students and then brought out Little Miss Grubby Toes to meet the kids. Students and teachers alike had a great time singing and learning about the importance of bees and listening to grownups to stay safe.
