Education

Experiencing technology

The Holly Springs Intermediate School Parent Teacher Association kicked off its technology workshop, Getting Wired Together, on Wed., Nov. 16. The endeavor is a joint effort of the Holly Spring Intermediate School, the Intermediate School PTA, and the HSSD Technology Department to develop technology literacy within the community. Getting Wired Together is an opportunity for parents and their children to experience and learn technology together.

The technology workshop, concentrates on technology skills that can be used for real world applications. Participants create a product and then take it home to use.

Monthly sessions are held at Holly Springs Intermediate School, as a free service to the community. All HSSD parents are encouraged to sign up and attend. For more information about the date and time please contact Akiah Jones at Holly Springs Intermediate, 252-2329 or email at ajones@hssd.k12.ms.us.


Olive Branch business hires Byhalia High School senior

By CHARLES JOHNSON

Wanda Cleveland has been a great supporter of students at Byhalia High School in the past. This year was no different; she is still helping our students by giving them jobs this year. Cleveland hired four students from Byhalia last year and had planned to do the same this year, but some of the students were not old enough to start work. Ashley King, a senior at Byhalia was hired. She is the next student to become employed through the school-to-work program that the State Department of Education recommends each school district have. These students are getting an early start on on-the-job training and work experience. They are earning a pay check as well as getting experience. They must keep their pay stubs as documentation of their employment. This school-to-work program has been very successful this year.

There are seniors from H.W. Byers, Potts Camp, and Byhalia, all working jobs after school outside the school setting. These students are excited about earning their own money and getting work experience at the same time.

I would like to thank Don Robertson, manager of Wal-Mart, Wanda Cleveland and Debbie Rogers, for supporting Marshall County Schools.
