School banquet focuses on reading

  • Wednesday, February 12, 2014

Bonner Elementary School held an “I love to Read Banquet” on Feb. 6.

The event is a major community/school program that allows parents and teachers to work together for the good of the students. The keynote speaker was Dr. Linda Karges-Bone, a nationally known best selling author and expert on brain-based teaching and learning that focuses on training needs.

Dr. Karges - Bone talked about ways to “make your children smarter” with an emphasis on brain development.

Also, the Bonner Chorus performed, and dinner was served with the faculty serving the community.


Hood’s Chapel UM Church is holding a rummage sale on Saturday, Feb. 22. Barbeque sandwiches, slaw, chips drinks and hot dogs will also be available.

The sale will be from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Come and browse; there will be all kinds of items. They just might have something that you have been trying to find.

The fundraiser is to help raise money for a new roof on the church.
