The Blytheville School Board voted last night to continue to follow CDC suggestions and wear face masks for the remainder of the 20/21 school year. This means that we'll continue as we have from the beginning of the year and wear masks and practice social distance. This was not an easy decision but in the end the students and staff were the main focus.

Ayden Allen, a 5th grader in the Tenaris afterschool program, participated in a science project where he introduced different variables to determine the effects on a balloon. In these pictures, he is seeing how paper confetti will react when a charged balloon touches them.
