Arnoldsburg Elementary would like to express their appreciation to Justin McKown, Braydon McKown, David Dickey, and Eli Dickey for their help in getting heat to the greenhouse. On February 24th, Justin, with the help of David and Eli, used a small backhoe to dig and bury the conduit to the greenhouse so that heat could be installed. Heating the greenhouse will allow the school to have hanging baskets of flowers ready for Mother's Day. Arnoldsburg Elementary staff and students say, "Thank you for your support of the school and the children."
In additional support, Principal Charles Thomas wrote: "With a packed house, the school raised a little over $15,000.00 at their annual Bingo on March 2nd. Proceeds from this event will help the school develop a ball field which will used for baseball and soccer and build a pavilion with a kitchen and bathrooms.
The school would also like to thank all those who contributed; local businesses in Arnoldsburg, Grantsville, and Spencer, friends, community members, and businesses outside the county.
