Abingdon High School students were recently chosen to represent Washington County in the "Y St." Non-Smoking Convention in Richmond on April 29. Among these students were juniors, Ryan C., Terrance H., and Ian R.; sophomores, Will G, Jillian A., and Courtney G; and freshmen, Rosie J. and Caitlin H. Each student ventured through separate classes learning about distinct facts and street marketing for the Y St. campaign. Y St. is an organization devoted strictly for young adults. Rather than emphasizing that smoking is bad, the students were taught simple facts to share. After many courses, the students attended a dance with all other students and enjoyed receiving free items, such as t-shirts and bookbags. Each students is now a Y St. member and will continue in this group until graduation from high school. Kelly Read, school nurse, attended with the group.

Students at Watauga Elementary School enjoyed an afternoon of fun on Friday, April 29. Students participated in a PTA fundraiser during the fall of the year and earned an "inflatable party day". Students have been working very hard in preparation for SOL testing which begins in May, so this day provided a much needed day of stress relief and a good time to share with classmates. Students have also been purchasing "Celebrate Life" bracelets to raise money for the Relay for Life Walk this weekend. The fourth and fifth grade choir will perform during Relay for Life during the afternoon and conclude with a Watauga kids walk.
