The Pulaski County Adult Education/WAGE Program participated in the Sherwood Holiday Parade on Saturday, December 5th!
The theme was an “American Christmas” and the first parade that we have ever entered was a success! Thanks to all of our volunteers and their families who helped decorate and marched in the parade handing out candy to everyone. We had special candy canes with Pulaski County’s information just for adults. At the end, the parade announcer mentioned our program, along with what we offer and how great of a program it is! Everyone had fun and it’s an excellent way to advertise and to be a part of the community.
On Thursday, October 22, 2015, Melissa Fetherston, WAGE Coordinator, and Katina Harper, Instructor and Alternative Sentencing Coordinator, were interviewed by Broadway Joe Talk Show on stations KOKY 102.1 and Power 92.3 and by Billy St. James for Praise 102.5.

We received a new interactive SMART Board from the Pulaski County Special School District in October 2013. The students really enjoy it.
Students Karon Miller, Pamela Turner, Paula Nowden, Delois Williams, and Latrina Williams work on the new smartboard in Ms. Pierce’s class.
These are some of the things students in Ms. Pierce’s class had to say about it:
“I like it because we can work as a group.
“It’s more visual! We can see what is happening better.”
“We can all learn hands-on and help each other.”
A SMART Board is an interactive digital whiteboard designed for engaging students and presenting presentations. The smartboard is touch sensitive and you can use your finger, or the pens provided, will act as your computer mouse, allowing you to visit websites, scroll through PowerPoint slides, and more. Using the SMART Board can lead to more interactive lectures and presentations. The hands-on feature makes it engaging for students. The SmartBoard runs off of local computer system resources, is ideal for displaying learning objects, animations, and video clips to supplement student learning and can story any information that is written on it.
The Incentive Award for September will be a gift certificate to Jason’s Deli!
