Two new programs will help Washington County Public Schools students make the transition from elementary school to middle school and from middle school to high school, according to a school system press release. Eighth-grade students who complete training will lead the middle school program for incoming sixth-grade students called Where Everybody Belongs (WEB), according to the release. An assembly held prior to the first day of school will give incoming and new students a chance to learn about their new school, its programs, activities and challenges from students who already have had those experiences, according to the release.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- The areas from which people can watch Fourth of July fireworks in Waynesboro are changing to accommodate a longer show featuring explosions higher in the sky. The Waynesboro Area Middle School parking lot will be divided in half by caution tape. Spectators can sit in the half closest to East Second Street, but no one will be permitted to park in the lot. Also, spectators will not be allowed to sit closer than the southeast corner of the building. Fireworks are put off near the trees behind the school.
