Whitmire Community School’s Elementary chorus The Roaring Wolverines entertained residents of National Health Care of Clinton on Nov. 18. Nearly 40 students in third, fourth and fifth grades shared their patriotic concert under the direction of Jacque Graham.


The inaugural Math Olympiad team competed in its first Olympiad on Nov. 18. The team is coached by teachers Sunshine Hayes and Sabrina Martin and consists of 21 students in third, fourth, and fifth grades. They have been participating in weekly practices and mock Olympiads to prepare for the events. Throughout this year, students compete four more times. Each competition consists of five timed problem solving situations. Pictured are Olympiad participants and their team T-shirts.
