Nolley students wrap up school year
The last days for students were filled with track and field activities, awards assemblies and a picnic and dance party for the outgoing fourth-graders, according to Principal Christina Pappas.
On June 4, students took part in Relay For Life activities, collecting donations for the American Cancer Society and then walking around the track outside their building. During the year, a number of events were held on behalf of Relay For Life. Preschoolers to fourth-graders participated in activities such as an ugly sweater contest, a penny drive and movie nights, with students collecting more than $6,000 for the American Cancer Society, according to Sharon Gardner, a third-grade teacher who coordinated the events.

“It’s been a wonderful year and everyone worked really hard,” Pappas said. “The staff was awesome and the kids were excellent, but it’s always hard to say goodbye.”
Some of the students helped teachers clean and organize classrooms to make them ready for summer cleaning during their last days of school.
