Second graders ring in the new year



Students in Mary Lois Akins-Newsome’s second grade class at Washington Wilkes Primary School enjoyed ringing in the new year upon returning to school from Christmas break on January 4 with fun activities. The students were given “Happy New Year” hats, blowers, and noise-makers to celebrate in counting down the new year 2018. Afterward, students discussed and wrote about “Things to Look Forward to in 2018.” Some of the discussion included new things to learn in 2018 and goals for the new year. A fun time was had by all including (front row, l-r) Ahkeelah Davis, Alaina Walton, Ashlyn Ivey, (middle) Zion Bankston, Maggie Thornton, Alexandra Sanchez-Velazquez, Avery Gaddy, Baylie Bridges, (back) Gavin Perkins, Nolan Acree, Amar Jacobs, Trenton King, Carson Callaway, Calvin Wynn, Cash Richards, Sums Islam, and Hagen Harkins. Mrs. Akins-Newsome is in the very back, and she had a good time too.
