In order to be able to recognize outstanding achievement on state assessments (FSA ELA, FSA Math, FSSA Science, Civics EOC, Algebra EOC and Geometry EOC) as well as recognize outstanding achievement in the classroom, it was necessary to reschedule our Awards Programs for current 5th, 6th and 7th grade students to the beginning of the 2018-19 School Year. The dates and times have not yet been established, but our Awards Programs will be held within the first two weeks of school next year. We feel like this will be a wonderful way to kick off the 2018-19 School Year and hopefully create enthusiasm and excitement as we push forward in 2018-19.
30A Bike Shop owner Josh Foreman and coworker Tommy Lindsey donated a brand new bike to a very deserving student in Ms. Donnita Carroll's classroom on April 27th.  Kyle Cooper bought $40 worth of tickets for a chance to win a bicycle and unselfishly gave many of them to friends in his class. Kyle didn't have the winning ticket, but one of the tickets he purchased and gave to his friends was the winner!  Kyle was so excited that his friend won and didn't have one momnet of sadness that he wasn't the one going home with a new bike. When Mr. Foreman and Mr. Lindsey heard about Kyle's selfless actions and genuine support of his friends they wanted to make sure that Kyle had his own new bike. Ms. Carroll, Kyle's teacher, and Mrs. Karley Leach, teacher aide, are very thankful for the act of kindness shown to Kyle by Mr. Foreman and Mr. Lindsey. We are fortunate to have people and businesses like these in our community!
