Sturgeon High School art students helped paint the Sturgeon portion of the Boone County Bicentennial mural on Thursday, December 5, at Sturgeon High School. Boone County will celebrate its Bicentennial in 2020. Artist/educator Stacy Self is creating a large mural in the shape of Boone County that depicts 200 years of Boone County history. The mural is divided into pieces, each representing distinct geographic sections of the County.

They discussed the recent four-day school week survey, of which of the district’s 260 families, of which 179 families responded. R-V Superintendent Geoff Neill said results indicated said responses indicate staff and students are “overwhelming for it.” The overall response rate he said was 70 percent. “That’s huge, we won’t get that for voter turnout.”

He said 117 of the participating families said they were in favor of the four-day school week, 27 families said they were against, 32 wanted more information.
