Teachers from two districts parade through neighborhoods

Local News

(WEHT) — Instead of the sound of a school bell, some students heard sounds of car horns Monday.

Teachers from Yankeetown Elementary in Newburgh and Cravens Elementary in Owensboro drove through neighborhoods to see and wave at students.

Yankeetown students held signs and wrote messages in chalk saying how much they missed their teachers and school.

Cravens teachers painted inspirational messages on side windows to encourage them as they start the second week of non-traditional instruction (NTI) from home.

“I know it’s hard being away from school and having to work through NTI instruction, but we just wanted them to know we are thinking of them and we think they’re doing great and to give them a little push to get them through the rest of the time we’re going to be away from each other,” music teacher Madison Wells said.
