Mrs. McQueary’s 2nd grade class walked to the Courthouse.  We enjoyed our tour and especially had fun doing a Mock Trial with Juge Katie Wood.  We would like to thank Eliza York, Danetta Allen and others who helped make our trip educational.

MVES 2nd grade students from Mrs. Cowan’s, Mr. McKinney’s, Mrs. Gentry’s and Mrs. Burton’s classes participated in a lesson with Judge Katie Wood last week at the Rockcastle County Courthouse.  Students were engaged in a mock trial and enjoyed learning from Judge Wood.  They also visited the County Clerk’s Office where they heard about the how it helps our community.  MVES would like to thank Judge Wood, Danetta Ford, and Eliza York for taking time to talk to the students.
