Say Cheese, May 18


ON THE GO. Students of all grades and ages from Culpeper, Orange, Madison and Rappahannock  participated in the special games held at Culpeper County High School’s Broman Field Tuesday morning. The event’s games consisted of many of the key events found in a Track and Field meet including dashes on the track, Shot Put (with softballs), and Discus Throwing (with frisbees). Pictured is Teleya Gourdine, a student at Yowell Elementary, racing down the track.

AWESOME ARTISTS. Nineteen school divisions were represented at the VSBA (Virginia School Boards Association) 2017 Central Regional Art Show. Each school division could submit three entries. Culpeper County was represented by Aubrey Chaney, a second grader at Emerald Hill Elementary, Cheyanne Brown, an eighth grader at Floyd T. Binns Middle School, and Bailey Wilson, a junior at Culpeper County High School. Bailey’s artwork won a third place.
