Students get special sendoff
Weirton Elementary School faculty and staff hosted a “reverse parade” Wednesday evening, honoring the school’s fourth-grade students as they prepare to move on to Weir Middle School. The youth were driven through the school’s parking lot, greeted with cheers from their teachers and other school officials. This year’s fourth-graders were the first class to go through all of the grade levels at Weirton Elementary, having enrolled in Pre-K when the school opened in the fall of 2014.
