2016 SPEER FAMILY

A LOVING, LASTING TRIBUTE...

*YOU STILL HAVE TIME TO ORDER YOUR MEMORIAL BRICK PAVER!

Last October 20, 2016, as children were anxiously anticipating Halloween and lots of trick-or-treating, a beautiful, young family of six perished in the night, as their rural home went up in flames. Four little girls, Elli, Adilynn, Emma, ages 11, 7 and 5, were students at Conestoga Elementary and had many friends, in and around the surrounding area, as did their baby sister, Anniston, 2, and their parents, Mike and Michelle Speer.

In honor of her family, JoLynne Lehan, Mike's mom, has directed that donations go to Conestoga's outdoor classroom, Cougar Hollow. With the four little girls' love of performing, playing and being out-of-doors exploring nature, in mind, the new additions for this special area will include a pavilion for outdoor instruments, a chalkboard and chairs. A memorial fountain will be added at a later date.

A brick walking path will direct visitors to this special area. If you would like to honor this family with a loving tribute, you may purchase a  memorial brick paver for $75. You may add any name to be engraved on the brick. There is space for 3 rows, with each row including a total of 14 characters, (including spaces). The clock is ticking...you need to order soon. Download an order form with complete directions and contact information here.

Thank you for helping to make this vision possible!

.*BRICKS ARE ALREADY IN AND WILL BE ENGRAVED AS THEY'RE SET IN THE GROUND.

2017 GREENBLATT SEAY

GREENBLATT & SEAY MUSIC

Our performance in Weeping Water on September 30 will include a fiddle made by Dr. Kunkel, who was the doctor for the Weeping Water community for many years. The fiddle is actually a “pochette”, or “pocket fiddle”, and is smaller and thinner than the usual violin. The pocket fiddle was often used in the 1800’s by dance masters, so that they could play and give dance instructions at the same time.

Enjoy the weather, and we hope to get to play for you soon!

Sincerely,
Debby-in-the-Schoolhouse

Adult Education finds new home at First Presbyterian Church

Plattsmouth’s Adult Education Program, including Adult Education, GED, and English Language classes, have a spacious new home in the First Presbyterian Church CE Building at 701 Chicago Avenue, Plattsmouth. The CE Building is the smaller of the Church’s two buildings.


“We have two large and comfortable rooms for classes this school year. We feel very happy to have room to move around easily and keep learning materials where students can readily use them. We have additional student-use computers as well,” said Program Director Tallie VanWesten. “We are grateful for this excellent new space and the First Presbyterian Church’s welcome.”


Classes are held Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to noon and from 6:30 to 9 p.m. each week. Classes will begin Tuesday, Sept. 5 with orientation sessions. Orientation for the morning class will begin at 9:30 a.m. and continue until noon. Evening class orientation begins from 6:30 to 9 p.m. This is a good time to complete the required paperwork, set up your computer-study accounts, and share your learning goals. Teachers will be available to answer questions during orientation. New students and returning students should attend orientation. Get your school year off to an excellent start at orientation.


Morning and evening classes started Thursday, Sept. 7 at the same times listed above.


For more information about Adult Education, polishing your math, language, science and social studies skills; GED classes and testing; and English language classes; call Program Director Tallie Van Westen at 402-296-3174 Ext. 2315.


Classes are free. Everyone is welcome. Start your adult education classes in our new location. Now is the time!
