VES celebrated 50 days of school 50s style

Celebrating 50 days of school Monday, the theme at Vilonia Elementary School, was VES Rocks. Some of the teachers as well as the students wore poodle skirts. Others wore white T-shirts and rolled up jeans—both boys and girls. As a part of the celebration, in the afternoon second graders watched Woody Woodpecker cartoons, played jacks, hoola hooped, sculptured with Play Doh and participated in a bubblegum blowing contest. They also did the limbo to Elvis music and sipped on coke floats. Students also participated in Red Ribbon Week.
