Can Students Make the Difference?

By Alicia Lambert

This past week, fifth grade has been writing letters to our new President Barack Obama, which were mailed out on February 5th.  Mrs. Janeice Smith and her students have been following the election, all the way up until the inauguration, and taking notes on important issues that they would like to discuss.

The students wrote letters about issues that were important to them, and things they would like fixed.  Some topics were war, unemployment, the environment, energy, education, health care, the economy, and homeless people.  The students also drew mind portraits, which was a drawing of our President with words written on his forehead.  The words drawn on his head are supposed to represent what he is thinking when he reads the letters.  The students and their teacher, Mrs. Janeice, have been working very hard on this project and are hoping to get a response back. 


LASC Goes Green

By Sarah Martin

Levy Area Student Council had a meeting on February 4th in Chiefland to discuss the agenda for next year.  While members were there, they planted flowers in window boxes for the retirement home.  The boxes were an idea to “go green” as a service project and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.  The plants were specially selected to filter the most harmful gases out of the air. 

It was on of the four meetings that will take place this year.  LASC is the county wide student government.  Each school’s student government takes a turn hosting meetings at one of the four schools in the county.
