The old Goliad Intermediate School will be reopened as a sixth-grade campus for the 2014-2015 school year but Big Spring Independent School District officials are still contemplating whether to add fifth graders into the mix.
To address growing rumors, Superintendent Chris Wigington touched on the subject during Mondayâ€™s public community night meeting.
Months of work by Big Spring High School art students are now on display for a limited time at the Heritage Museum.
â€śEach year that my students have displayed their works, we have had a great response from the community,â€ť said Big Spring High School art teacher Judy Tereletsky. â€śIt is fantastic to know the people of Big Spring support the visual arts.â€ť
The exhibition is being held in the downstairs gallery of the museum, located at 510 Scurry, for the next two weeks only.

Many of the teams and athletes gathering this weekend at the University Interscholastic Leagueâ€™s Class 3A State Track and Field Championships in Austin know they donâ€™t have a chance at winning a state title. That isnâ€™t the case for the Big Spring High School Lady Steers 4x200- and 4x400-meter relay teams.
Both have very realistic chances of walking away from the meet with gold medals.
The Howard College Lady Hawks may have seen their bid to earn a berth in the NJCAA softball World Series fall one game shy, but that didnâ€™t mean the team didnâ€™t impress on the field.
