Seven faculty and staff members of the Oglethorpe County Primary School were recently recognized by Dr. James-Robinson for having perfect attendance for the first semester of the 2015-2016 school year. These staff members were among more than 80 staff members who did not miss a day of work from August 7, 2015 through Dec. 18, 2015. For this achievement they were treated to a few small tokens of appreciation to include a restaurant gift card, milkshake coupon, jeans pass, and an Early Release Incentive (ERI) which allows them to leave 30 minutes early one day of their choice. Dr. James-Robinson states that she wishes that she could have done more to show her sincere appreciation.
The Honorable Beverly Nation, Oglethorpe County Probate Judge and Voting Registrar Steve McCannon visited with Mrs. Mathis' second grade class to discuss who can vote, how we vote, and choosing a candidate. Students then heard campaign promises from 2 popular soft drinks (1 red and 1 blue candidate) and then voted for their favorite based on the information given. Students had a great time learning about one of the most important privileges that we have as citizens.
