The Vienna Finley K-Kids decided to clean up winter debris from the school playground area as a service project. After getting permission from the Principal, they planned, scheduled a date, procured the supplies they needed and gave up their recess on Wednesday, 11 Mar to fan out and pick up paper and trash that had accumulated around the playground over the winter. Despite the cool temps and cloudy skies, within 30 minutes they had organized, spread out and completed their task.
I am so proud of this group and their Faculty Advisor, Katie Rose.

The Scottsburg Kiwanis Club donated $200 to the 4H Robotics Team from Vienna Finley ES to help them with their registration fee to enter the VEX Robotics Worldwide Competition in Louisville, KY the end of April. The team won the local competition, and placed high enough in the regional and state competitions to quality to compete in the Worldwide Competition. Pictured is Bobbie Foster from the Scott County 4H accepting the donation from Kiwanis President Al Riggle at their lunch meeting at the Roadhouse USA. Good luck to the Robotics Team!
