Spring Fling Day 22: Pet Supplies

Spring Fling Day 22: Pet Supplies

Today let’s fling Fido and Fluffy’s stuff.  It’s time to fling those too small collars and bowls, treats that the cat just will not eat and the frayed leashes. If you have supplies from a long gone pet, like an aquarium or a hamster habitat, today is the day to let those go.

 

Now go flinging!  Please come back and tell me how many pet supplies you were able to fling today.

ATLANTA (AP) - State education officials say Georgia's elementary and middle schools improved overall during the last two years. But high schools on average are struggling to boost their students' performance.

That's according to new data released on Monday. The state is releasing two years of scores for school districts, including an update to previously released 2012 numbers.

The original 2012 numbers were the result of a similar system, rating schools on a scale of 100.

Bleckley churches hold Easter activities despite weather

Bleckley churches hold Easter activities despite weather

Though the rain would either cancel or force postponment of some Easter activities, there were churches who moved their events indoors.  Magician Mike Fuller showed children at Salem Baptist Church 'The Magic of Easter" Saturday morning.  The children also enjoyed a hot dog lunch and egg hunt inside the Sunday School class rooms.

An outdoor egg hunt at Mt. Calvary was turned into indoor activities including hearing the Easter story and decorating cupcakes.  Saturday afternoon, children and teens gathered at First Church of the Nazarene.  After hearing the Easter story, they enjoyed hot dogs.  Then teens assisted children with the egg hunt then helped run games such as cupcake walk.
