Principal Mark Leet's theme over the past year has been to =own the data" provided by ongoing testing of students at the school, whether good or not so good, leading his school to have a Distinguished status for this year's School Report Card. Following the release of testing data at the end of September, Mr. Leet organized a student-led conference night for parents in which students explained the entire system of testing to their parents, instead of a traditional parent-teacher conference. "This would not be successful in our building if the students had not bought into it," Leet said. "Last year the teach- ers bought in, and now the students have ownership of their learning." Students from Kindergarten, Second, and Fifth grades discussed their testing data and how the data is organized along with learning educational standards before they were presented with certificates and photos with Supt. Harvey Tackett, their teacher, and Mr. Leet. A 6 mile stretch of road in Bath County is going to be named the "Jerry Thatcher Memorial Highway". The ceremony will be held at 10:00 a.m. December 8, 2016 at the Bath County Courthouse Annex. i: ~i!~ :i Available Now at Allison'si $10.00 donation appreciated Open 7 Days a Week[ 8355 Maysville Rd.
