The Famous Yellow Pad  

The Gifted Homepage

of Ripley, Evans, Fairplain, Kenna and Cottageville elementaries

Jackson County, West Virginia Schools  


 Welcome to our homepage.  At the Yellow Pad, you will find the completed  works - writings and projects  - of the gifted students.   

This year we will also use the Thinkquest website as a working site for information  exchange between students and between students and teacher. 

Students can only access Thinkquest with their passwords. 

  Each week your child should  bring home a flyer with the curriculum  for the week ahead.
