Frankie is coming to you from Frankford Elementary School
in West Virginia. We are a rural community located in
Greenbrier Valley. Beautiful mountains surround us.
This makes skiing quite popular here. We also enjoy
the following sports: soccer, football, basketball and
baseball. Scouting and 4-H are enjoyed here too.
We experience four seasons here. We are now experiencing
winter. Snow and cold temperatures have prevented us from
coming to school. When we are at school, we have fun.
We compete in many areas too - Spelling bee, battle of the books,
young writer's, art and math. Even though our school isn't new we
do have technology. Each classroom has at least two computers.
Our technology center houses additional ones.
Frankie hopes to find the monarch butterflies that left here in the
Fall of '96. We enjoyed locating the caterpillars on milkweed,
feeding them, watching them turn into a chrysalis, and then
witness a beautiful monarch butterfly emerge. Hopefully he'll
return with some of our butterflies in the Spring!
