Learning in Motion

A total of 441 Preston County youngsters took advance of the Learning in Motion bus this summer, Superintendent Steve Wotring reported last week. And 368 kids received meals through the program. (Meals were not offered at some stops, due to the time of day.)

“It was just a huge success,” Wotring said, crediting Lead Technology Integration Specialist Darla Moyers and Curriculum Director Michelle Berry as being behind the scenes, orchestrating the tour.
