Youngsters and their parents descended on Ellington Elementary School in Quincy for the annual kindergarten roundup Friday. Kids who will be 5 years old by Sept. 1 will make up the new kindergarten classes in the fall.
The North Shelby community was rocked when four students were in a car crash on Sept. 24. North Shelby student Joshua Kennison was pronounced dead at the scene, while freshman football player Jakob Pratt died Oct. 11. The Raiders know it is a journey to move past the tragedy that struck their community over the last month, but they know they can do things to help the process.
