Fuqua implements new program

Fuqua Middle School implemented a new program for students in grades seven and eight. These students are able to select electives to begin building upon their interest in specific areas. Seventh- and eighth-grade students may elect to take Junior Band or the elective wheel. This “wheel” has four spokes that alternate each quarter. These spokes consist of art/digital art with Forrest Layne, music/drama/song writing with Mandy Foster, coding with Laney Kortas and 3D printing with Kathy Jefferson. Students enjoy narrowing in on one area five days a week. Once the quarter ends, students will rotate to another spoke in the wheel. Pictured are, from left, Ella Estes, of Farmville, and Reid McMichael, of Buffalo Junction, seen in Mr. Layne’s digital art class using iPencils.
