Break out the snowmobiles, sleds and snow shovels, the season's first snow blew into Whitley County at 2:09 p.m. today, Thursday, Nov. 10, 2011.
With temperatures barely reaching 40 degrees today, a few snowflakes at 2 p.m. turned into brief but semi-heavy snow squalls throughout the afternoon. Snow was confirmed in Columbia City and South Whitley, and from radar reports undoubtedly was present throughout Whitley County.
No accumulation was reported or expected.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Whitley County Consolidated Schools implemented a project last year known as the New Teacher Program.
Michelle Urban, vice principal at Indian Springs Middle School, updated the WCCS school board on the programâ€™s progress Monday.
Urban said the goal of the program is to explore best practices, provide them with educational research and create an environment for elaboration and discussion.
The program meets once a month. Following the meeting, Urban emails an account along with questions and material for the mentors to work on with their mentees.
