The kids of Hancock county began their Fall semester this past Friday. On Saturday we hosted a Back to School gathering at the park, complete with games, crafts, food, music and more. Rocky Bayou Baptist Church of Niceville, FL orchestrated and implemented the incredibly refreshing event. Children attending the fun packed day received school supplies donated by Rocky bayou. We can’t thank this church enough for their partnership in the ongoing recovery of our community.
Big equipment has begun site preparation for the new elementary school. South Hancock Elementary will replace the former Gulfview at the same location at the corner of Lakeshore road and Lower Bay Road. The school bored plans to have the new facilities ready for the 2008-09 academic year. Meanwhile, the kids still travel up to their temporary site behind the middle school at Stennis.
