Please help keep our kids safe! In WV, it is illegal to pass a school bus while the school bus stop-arm is extended and the red lights are flashing. Motorists should come to a complete stop in front of and behind a school bus when the red lights are flashing, and the stop-arm is extended. Motorists may begin moving only when the red flashing lights are turned off, the stop-arm is withdrawn, and the bus starts to move. When yellow flashing lights are active, the bus is preparing to stop to load or unload children. Motorists should slow down and prepare to stop. Although the school bus is one of the safest modes of transportation, illegal school bus passing is a deadly risk to bus riders and their caretakers.
PRE-K - 3 BUS REMINDER: A parent or their designee must be at the bus stop for both pickup and delivery of all kindergarten through third-grade students. If the parent elects to designate another adult or sibling (grades 6 –12), a written request to the transportation department listing all approved names is required.
Woo-hoo! It's the first day of school for grades 1 - 12, and we're SO excited! We're sure you are, too! Here's to a fabulous first day and an amazing school year ahead for our students, staff, and families!

Mr. Vestal's Kindergarten class had a great time at Lost World on their field trip!
Rupert Elementary's afterschool Run Club had a colorful fun run to celebrate the end of the year! The Active SWV Kids Run Club program seeks to improve the health of southern West Virginia’s youth by empowering them with the opportunities, skills, knowledge, and confidence to be physically active. The central goal of the program is to instill healthy habits in our area’s youth and to get them excited about running and physical activity. Active SWV hopes that all participants find joy and confidence with running and physical activity, so that they can continue to be active beyond their time in the Club. Active SWV offers a $250 grant that Rupert Elementary has participated in for 4 seasons.
Rupert Elementary's afterschool program, Empower, invited parents to their last day. Students planted flowers into a handmade decorated flowerpot with Principal Mrs. Harden. Attendees were treated with a cooking demonstration from Greenbrier West Pro-start Culinary students. They made delicious cookie dough wontons. Three Rupert Elementary alumni were in attendance and inspired some of our students to join the club when they arrive at Greenbrier West! Students finished with an amazing archery demonstration with the help of their instructor, Mr. Warnick. The parents were impressed with the skills their children have learned this year. A big thank you to Chef Foley and his team, Mrs. Harden, Mr. Warnick, and all the after-school staff for today!
Rupert Elementary Pre-K planted grass heads with principal, Mrs. Harden this week. Once the "hair" starts growing, they will be able to give them haircuts.
Both Rupert PreK classes planted lettuce and radishes last week with principal, Mrs. Harden as part of their Teaching Strategies Gardening Study. Their favorite part was the wagon rides to and from the school garden. They also had to weed the garden beds before they could plant the seeds.
