This afternoon at 1:40 p.m., a report of a smell of smoke in a classroom at McCord Elementary School was made to Interim Principal Scott Hogue. Mr. Hogue immediately ordered a fire drill and the building was evacuated. Vernon ISD officials entered the classroom where the smell of smoke was located trying to locate the source. Vernon Fire Department personnel arrived and discovered a smoldering LED ballast. Fire Department personnel soon gave the all-clear allowing students, teachers and staff to enter the building and return to their classrooms. Assistant Superintendent Blaise Boswell said an electrician has been contacted and the classroom will not be used until the light has been repaired. Boswell praised the students and staff for the great job they did on following fire drill procedures.

Today is Paraprofessional Appreciation Day! We have paraprofessionals at each campus who help our students and our teachers with hundreds of things, and sometimes it may seem like that help goes unnoticed. But, we notice and appreciate all of you each and every day! Our "paras" play a role in Vernon ISD's success!

Yesterday with plenty of laughs and giggles, students in Ms. Rose Rivera's art classes wrapped up their confetti egg projects by breaking them on each other. The project helped the students with their colors and other art elements. The top of the eggshell was broken to get the egg out, and students then colored their egg, made confetti to put it in, filled the egg and glued a piece a paper to the top of the egg.
