Also on this day, Miss Calen Morse was born. Happy birthday, Calen and I hope you are made to feel extra special today. Tomorrow, Michael Lopez-Rivera, Laila and Raina Muse, Khazyia Ackey, and Coach Cohen are starting their next trip around the sun and then on Sunday, Mrs. Tewanna Brown will be turning a year older. I hope everyone has a great day and that you have lots of happy on your birthday.
Today random prizes will be given out during lunch from our lunchroom staff in honor of National School Lunch week. Good luck...maybe you’ll be a winner!

Unfortunately, our football season came to an unexpected end yesterday afternoon. Temple defeated us by a score of 30-8. It’s sad when seasons end, but it’s even more sad when they end unexpectedly. Good luck to our 8th graders as they move on up to the high school level and to our 6th and 7th graders, work hard in the off season to get better.
The high school football team travels to Bowdon this evening. It’s a “white out” so if you go be sure to wear your white. Also remember that tickets must be purchased online or with credit/debit card at the game. And good luck to our marching middle school band members! Play loud and proud!!!
Yearbooks are still on sale for $45.00. Order forms can be found outside Mrs. Brown’s door, room 304. The forms as well as the QR codes were posted on our Facebook page and website. Parents can scan the code to download the form.
Wrestling practice starts Monday, the 25th. You’ve got to have a physical and a parental permission form on file to practice. If you have any questions, please see Coach Richardson in room 202!
