LENA — Northwood High School students will compete in a world championship competition for archery next month. Until then, the 13 qualifying students are practicing three days a week.

Coaches Randall Dunn and Cynthia McGlothlin lead them in practice during the school year and now during the summer. Northwood High has been offering archery for students from fourth to 12th grade for three years. Kids take the class at the end of the day.

They started the year with 54 kids in the program. Each one had the opportunity to shoot at a regional competition at LSUA. Twenty-two qualifiers went on to the state competition and then 16 moved on to nationals in Louisville, Kentucky, earlier this month. - Read entire article @ The TOWNTALK

Reading can take you places. It can take you down the Mississippi River with Huck Finn or into the diary of a wimpy kid. And for top readers at D.F. Huddle Elementary, it's taking them to New Orleans on Thursday.

"When you read it's like exploring," student Maria Neal said. "It makes me feel like I'm in that book, like I'm one of the characters. It brightens up my heart to read."

Maria's favorite book is "The Frog Princess" by E.D. Baker. She is joining about 15 fellow Huddle students with top Accelerated Reader scores in grades 2-5 on a reward trip to the Crescent City for the day. Huddle teacher Cathy Malone raised about $1,800 through family, friends and Facebook contacts to make the trip a reality. Read entire article @TOWNTALK
