Reports from principals indicated that Pocahontas County’s first “Teacher Visitation Day,” November 11, was very successful. More than one hundred teachers and teacher aides combined to visit more than 600 homes of parents who had children attending county schools.
Many teachers expressed some surprise at the kindness and hospitality of many homes visited. Parents commented that they enjoyed the brief visit of the teachers and hoped this kind of relationship will continue.
Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Gibson were the high bidders at the public auction of Huntersville School November 6. Their bid was $4,625.
Due to the continuing coal strike, I will not recommend the use of school facilities after regular school hours for any activities another than school connected.
All Pocahontas County Schools will be closed Monday, November 22, for “Deer Day,” and Thursday and Friday, November 25 and 26, for Thanksgiving.
