Dear Heloise: My husband and I were so excited about our trip to New Zealand that we posted on social media a lot of information about when we'd leave and return, and promised to post pictures of our trip.
While . . .
Hannah Weatherford and Wyatt Reed, both sophomores at Crowley's Ridge Academy in Paragould, visited the Arkansas Department of Emergency Management (ADEM) in North Little Rock on Thursday. The students were given a personal tour of the facility as well as the National Weather Service Little Rock field office as part of their role as Greene County co-chairs in the Youth Preparedness Council under the Greene County Office of Emergency Management.
Grandparents DayCrowley's Ridge Academy held its annual Grandparents Day on Oct. 5. Hundreds of grandparents and great-grandparents visited the campus to spend the school day with their grandchildren. The group enjoyed a student-led devotional, a student talent show, concerts from performance groups, classroom time, and lunch together. CRA has hosted a Grandparents Day celebration for nearly 40 years. Pictured are CRA freshman Koda Yates (left), and seventh-grader Jaden Yates (right), as they prepare to eat lunch with their grandfather, Sonny Yates.
