Mr. Gerald Paugh, who has worked for Lewis County Schools for 26 years, is the new Transportation Supervisor. He has enjoyed watching the children grow and being a small part of their lives. Mr. Paugh hopes that in some way he has made a positive influence that may have encouraged the students to dream and succeed in life As supervisor, his goal is to finish his career trying to leave the transportation department in a better place by building relationships between the wonderful bus operators and administrators by trying to set a good example that will hopefully inspire all bus drivers to share the same compassion for the children as he has.

The 5th Grade Team decided to use a community member today to help our students learn more about the events of 9/11. Keith Talbert , the Deputy Chief of the Weston Fire Department and Assistant Director Lewis/Gilmer E-911/ Assistant Director of Lewis County Office of Emergency Management, presented on TEAMS to our students. Since our students were not alive to experience this and it’s history to many of them, we wanted to use our resources to help them make connections to the day. Our social studies classes spent last week analyzing before and after pictures of NYC, so this was a great way to connect what they learned in the classroom to the real world. We want to give a big shout out to Keith for taking the time to prepare a presentation for our kids and helping them understand the emotions and events that took place that day.
Lewis County Blueprint Communities is hosting a Fun Run. See Flyers for more information.
