Did you see the man, dressed in black, that led the West Virginia Mountaineers in dismantling the Kansas Jayhawks Tuesday evening in Morgantown, West Virginia? The slick-backed hair, the scowl on his face, that "mafia-man" look at courtside? To a lot of college basketball fans he's Darth Vader. To Mountaineer fans he's affectionately known simply as "Huggy Bear".
Ellinwood School/Community Library has art work on display from the students of St. Joseph Catholic School. In the display case and windows are projects from Mrs. Thomas' 7th-8th grade Kansas History class. On the display wall you will find work from Mrs. Doll's Kindergarten-1st grade, Mrs. Harrington's 2nd-3rd grade, Miss Miller's 4th-5th grade, and Mrs. Clayton's 6th grade. These pieces will be up through the month of January, and taken down on the 28th, to prepare for Catholic School's Week. We thank all of these young artists for sharing their art with our community!
