Kids would you like to show off your talent? This years Reflection theme is Let Your Imagination Fly. Entries from all grades and abilities are welcome. There are various categories to choose from which are Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography and Visual Arts.

If children have their basic needs met, they are more likely to succeed in school. Shown here is Amy Strege, Communities in Schools (CIS) site coordinator at Jefferson Elementary, as she helps a student select a new pair of shoes. "Amy and CIS take care of us from head to toes," says Jefferson principal Bobbi Buttars.

Families at Jefferson Elementary School will have to wait a few more years for scheduled improvements, but they'll end up getting a whole new school instead of just a new wing. The Richland School Board gave consensus Tuesday night to rebuild the school as part of the district's $98 million bond approved by voters two years ago. Only the 1953 wing was originally set for replacement.
