Whitethorn Student Writers Showcase


Second grade students from Whitethorn School held a book reading for parents and guests this morning at the Bluefield Arts Center. Students in each second grade class contributed to the writing of a class book.

Special guests in attendance were Mr. Miller Hall, State Board of Education Member; Mrs. Jacinda Santon Smith, Mercer County Board of Education Member; Mr. Jeff Johnson, Principal of Bluefield Intermediate School; and Dr. Deborah Akers, Superintendent of Mercer County Schools.

Thank you Brittany Anderson, Principal of Whitethorn School, and Ms. Guill, Ms. Bailey and Ms. Seabolt, second grade teachers, for teaching your students the importance of writing. Additionally, thank you for sharing your students’ learning experiences with us.

Congratulations students on a fantastic job.
