Congratulations to the Lady Jackets on their win over Lebanon last night. Tonight the Lady Jackets will play Wesclin in the second game at approximately 5:15.

Students: if you need to leave school early for any reason, you are responsible for charging your chromebooks in their cart. Do NOT leave them in your lockers overnight.

Students interested in participating in the Voice of Democracy Speech contest should see Mrs. Hogg for details.

Please return your signed handbook forms to the office. Your chromebook forms should be signed by both you and a parent and returned to your homeroom teacher.

Saturday, September 26th is the Metro East Sporting Clay Shoot at the Sparta World Shooting Complex.  We need volunteers!  Please let me know if you have any FCA students who are willing to come out and serve with us.  We are looking for 25 total kids.  Last year we had 10 to 12 so we need more this year.  The commitment is:


-          7:00am – 1:00pm

-          Shake hands and thank participants for supporting FCA

-          Interacting with shooters at stations

-          Pushing the button to launch the clay pigeons

-          Smiling and representing Jesus Christ and FCA

-          Wear an FCA shirt


We need helpers, so there is no prior shooting knowledge necessary (although that does help).  We will go through safety issues before hand to ensure people are protected and secure.


Please let me know how many volunteers we can expect and their names so I can relay the message to our sporting clay fellowship committee.  Thank you all so much for helping us with this!

  Athletic Lockers are available on the first floor and are NO CHARGE.  Please do not leave your athletic backpacks in teachers room or the weight room.

 Next week there will be sign up sheet in the High School Lobby for any students that want to get a table together for the Trivia on October 2nd.  The seniors would love nothing more than to have the entire student body come up and support Nikki in her recovery.  Teachers, please sign up with Mrs. Albert if you are interested in getting at team together.  It's $10.00 a person and up to 10 people can play on a team.
