Mountaineers Don't Bully
The West Virginia University Mountaineer, Troy Clemons, visited Rowlesburg School on October 12th as part of our anti-bullying rally. The Mountaineer told students that bullying isn't nice and that you should always think about the other person and their feelings. He explained that the WVU football and basketball players don't bully each other and how they must work together for a success team.
He also offered advice about posting things to social media. He reminded students that anything you put on social media is there forever. It can come back to 'haunt' you when completing college or job applications.
After a question & answer session and drawing names for several awesome prizes, students followed Troy outside to watch him shoot the musket!
Let's Go Mountaineers!
Fire Safety Week
Rowlesburg Volunteer Fire Department members visited kindergarten and first grade students during Fire Safety Week. After seeing the firemen dressed in their gear and learning how to be safe during a fire, the students went outside to spray the fire hose!
The current Rowlesburg School building opened in 1987 in Manheim following the devasting Flood of '85 took the school on Buffalo Street in downtown Rowlesburg. Rowlesburg School currently has 113 students, 25 professional personnel and 6 service employees.
Learning is for all.
- All students can learn.
- Learning is a partnership between school, home and the community.
- The educational environment must be safe, secure, and supportive to produce lifelong learners.
