Homelessness in a small town may not be as visible as it is in a big city; however, it is still a problem and it is affecting students and families in the community. Officials at Blackfoot School District 55 are reminding those with school aged children (K-12) that help is available through the "McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Improvement Act," a program to keep kids in school with the supplies, transportation and meals that they need.
Grammy-nominated artist Jenny Oaks Baker is performing in concert at 7:30 p.m. this Saturday at the Snake River High School auditorium. Tickets are $10 per person.
Baker will teach two workshops that will run from 4-6:15 p.m. on Saturday. One is a master class. The subject of the second workshop is yet to be announced.
"A master class is kind of a private lesson in front of an audience," Baker said. "I'm instructing the student as well as the audience.
The price to attend the workshops is $5 per person for one workshop; $8 per person to attend both.
To get tickets, call 684-9684.
