The students at Green are excited for snow for a new reason this winter. Under the direction of art teacher, Miss Woodburn, the students were able to create a public art display in the form of a snow plow!

Everyone at Green anxiously awaits the day when the snow falls and "our" plow is spotted on the roads of Hocking County!

Students in preschool, kindergarten and first grade participated in a fire safety presentation with Kerry Kazan the Fire Safety Man. He taught students the basics of fire safety including the importance of getting out of a burning building and stop, drop and roll. The students enjoyed the lighthearted jokes, games and magic used to reinforce the ideas of safety around fire.
The Madcap Puppets performed their version of Sleepy Hollow for students and staff. There were lots of opportunities for the audience to participate in the show including two cameos by Jackson Ballenger and Emily Suttles.
