Page 8 CLINCH VALLEY TIMES St. Paul, Va. Thursday, March 10, 2016 Saint Paul Elementary news by Jacob Sawyers The St. Paul Elementary" Pre-K Round-Up! As the grueling snow is beginning to go away for a While, spring is almost just around the comer. At SPES, spring typically sig- nals for the dreadful SOLs, but in this situation it calls for the annual Pre-K Round-UpI It is one of the most important events of the year, as it ensures the ifext generation of our school. The young ones that walk through those doors next Tuesday repre- sent a new frontier for the advancement of SPES. The Round-Up will be on March 15th from 1-3 P.M. and then on the same day from 4-6. Your young, bright child must be 4 years old by September 30th of this year in order to register. I hope that this article spreads the word and creates a sense of awareness to this key event for our school year. If you and your child attend, please try to bring other names that are eligi- ble for the class as well as their phone numbers and physical addresses to give us Points of Contacts. To keep the school as exuber- ant as it is now, we need a future. These children that .come through the doors of SPES Tuesday, whether they know it or not, are the future of SPES and more importantly the communi- ty. They are going to be the problem solvers, the world leaders, the doctors look- ing for cures, and the active citizens of the U.S. So when the doors are opened Tuesday, a new world opens for the kids, a world engaging them in learning.
