  • Tis the Season, Winn students learn giving

    A playground conversation between Olivia King and Kaidyn Hatton led to a service project for the students at Kathryn Winn Primary School.

    King wanted to do something for Christmas and Hatton wanted to do something for the hospital or nursing home so the two members of the Winn Leadership Club came up with Tis the Season to Stuff the Sleigh.

    They challenged their fellow students to bring in items to fill the sleigh. First graders were asked to bring in word search books, first graders brought in playing cards and the second graders brought in craft items.

  • High school students explore Hour of Code Week

    Some students at Carroll County High School began programming computers on Monday, and they have not stopped yet. Part of the annual Hour of Code Week, Lynn Eaglin’s business and technology students are exploring ways to make computers do their bidding: writing code, in other words.

    “I think every student should get some exposure to computer science,” Eaglin said. “It forces them to think in a slightly different way, and it’s a skill that you can apply in life in general, whether you end up in a computer science-related field or not.”
