Children’s House Montessori School first-graders from left, Denita Preacely, Claire Kendall, Cameron Furey and Marcus Hicks partake in a jump rope race Thursday during Stacy Eargle’s physical education class outside the school. Warmer temperatures and plenty of sunshine allowed the students to have class outside, a day before this morning’s showers. The National Weather Service today was forecasting rain and storms throughout the weekend.(The Vicksburg Post/MELANIE DUNCAN)
