Student Recognition

Congratulations to the Sr. High girlís basketball team for winning the Kell Classic Tournament this year. Congratulations to Quincy Humphries, Allyson Walsh, Kaylea Walling, and Madison Sellars for making the All- Kell Classic team. Madison Sellars was also voted the tournament MVP.

AMI Day Reminder:

To be counted present for the AMI days if we miss school, students must turn the assigned work into the teacher the first day we return. Any student who does not turn in the work will be counted absent for the AMI day. Students who are counted absent will also be accountable for the grade for that missing assignment. If you turn the AMI assignment in late you will get the grade but the absence stands.

Remember:  Attitude is a decision, so letís decide to make each day a success.

Negative people have a problem with every solution. Start each day with positivity. ~Gene Chizik

Changes on campus:

Students, you will notice that we have new chair-back seats in the gym on the home side. The old seats lasted nearly 20 years, but it was time for the change. Please help us take care of these new seats so they can last that long or longer. Please do not stand or step in the seat of the new chairs. This will help ensure the longevity of the new chairs.  

 

R.I.S.E. Arkansas

R.I.S.E. Arkansas(Reading Initiative for Student Excellence).  R.I.S.E. Arkansas encourages a culture of reading throughout the state, bringing together community partners, parents and teachers to help students become lifelong readers.

       Open Gym hours have changed.

o  Open Gym and weight room hours are from 6:00 pm-8:00 p.m. on Monday & Tuesday.

There will not be any open gym or skills night on nights of home sporting events.

       Students are not to be in the gym before/ after school without their coach. Teams are trying to practice and the traffic disrupts practice.

       Students must sit on the HOME side during all sporting events. Remember if you leave the gates of the game or the gym you cannot reenter.

       Students make sure and keep your hands off the Chromebook towers in the cafeteria. Do not unplug the Chromebooks or close the tower doors or touch the locks on the towers. The only reason to be at the tower is to place your Chromebook in the tower and plug it up or to pick it up. Do not handle another studentís Chromebook.
