Spring has sprung at Sterling Elementary. If your child has a tendency to get wet when playing outdoors make sure he or she has an extra set of clothes to change into after being outdoors. The school doesn't have clothing to furnish to all of the wet kids who come in each day after an encounter with the wet ground.
Shelby M. Smith in Ms. Miller's sixth-grade class won the yearbook cover contest. Her illustration will appear on the back cover of this year's Falcon Yearbook.
The PTA Spring Carnival will be from 3 to 6 p.m. Saturday at the school. There will be booths with many games for all ages and plenty of food for all to enjoy. This is the annual spring fund raiser for the PTA. Money raised goes back to support the programs that make the school a special place for this community.
