Nov. 21 Elida School News

Congratulations to Audrey Powell, a middle school teacher at Elida, for being honored in this year’s edition of Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers, 2004. Also, the school congratulates Powell for earning her M. Ed., a graduate degree for classroom educators.
The school was proud and privileged to honor its veterans who live in Elida and the surrounding area on Veterans Day, Nov. 11. Some 28 veterans, including Jim Marsh, the Veterans of Foreign Wars post commander in Portales, were invited guests to a luncheon gala and presentation by elementary and high school students.  Highlights of the program included a color guard, the origin of Veterans Day and reading of VFW essays.
The Elida school district will be closed for the Thanksgiving holidays from Wednesday through Friday. Elida Schools would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
