“Woody, Chloe, come back immediately,” Pa and Lauren screamed. Obeying, we returned to Pa and Farmer Lauren.

“Oh, doggies,” Pa said, wiping sweat from his brow, “you two sure gave us a scare!”

"Parent Night" to be held at Sharp ~ Nov. 5 Print E-mail

Session Two: "Guiding Your Child Through Life Skills"

All parents…mark your calendars for Tuesday, Nov. 5, 6:30 - 8 p.m. to attend "Guiding Your Child Through Life Skills", the second of four "Parent Nights" being presented at Phillip Sharp Middle School this year. The program will be held in the library and is geared toward the "Student Success Skills" program and concepts being presented weekly to all Sharp Middle School students.  You do not have to have a middle school student to benefit from this program as the skills you learn will help parents with children of all ages.

The program is designed for parents helping students develop the academic, social and self-management skills they need to succeed at all ages. Each session is a "stand alone" event. You can gain the most by attending all four, but you can gain a lot from attending one or two of the sessions. The third and fourth sessions will be advertised and presented at later dates.

There will be a short presentation, parent success skills activities and discussions, free refreshments and snacks plus a chance to win free door prizes. Drawings are held the night of the event and you must be present to win.

This is considered a "qualifying event" for the North FRYSC Christmas Program, parents of Sharp Middle School and Northern Elementary School students.

To register, please call the North FRYSC at 859-472-5518. Childcare is available but you must sign up for it when registering by giving your child/children’s name and age in order to assist in the planning of activities and snacks.

“Yes,” Pa confirmed, “cow manure.”

“Looks great to me,” Pa replied after examining Bonnie and her milk.

“Bonnie’s milk is white,” I said. “Bonnie is a Brown Swiss. Her milk should be chocolate!”
