The Winter of 2020 did not deliver the usual drama of our region with mounds of white, fluffy snow, the excitement of an oncoming blizzard, or even a snow day. It was grey, dry, and frankly a little dull. But the more than 135 photos submitted by 27 Elementary•Middle School students for this year's Winter Photo Contest were anything but boring.  This year's EMS winner is Cameron Minster who has submitted photos to the contest for the past four years. Lauri Johnson, EMS faculty member who is... Read More
