Fairview kindergartners start off year with an 'A'
Classes began today for the 2023-2024 school year in West Plains and surrounding rural schools, including Fairview School on K Highway, about 2.5 miles west of West Plains. Kindergartners in Ashley Bray's class, after getting a recess in, got to work writing the letter "A" on their very first school day. Here, Bray gives student Lorenzo some tips on holding his paper in place with one hand and writing with the other. This is the beginning of Bray's 15th year teaching and her ninth as a kindergarten teacher. The school has four kindergarten classrooms this year, with 13 students in Bray's class. Last year, she said, the school had three kindergarten classrooms and 21 students were in Bray's class.
