The New Athens FFA is taking part in a food drive sponsored by the Illinois FFA Association. We are asking all homerooms to voluntarily participate in collecting non-perishable food items. Half of what is collected will be donated to the local food bank, CESNA. The other half will be taken to Springfield June 9th-11th during state convention. The homeroom with the most items collected will win an ice cream party. Thank you for your support!

Boys track team will be dismissed at 3:00 today, and leaving at 3:15 for their Sectional meet at Nashville.

  Mr. Works would like to meet with all students interested in participating in cross country next fall.  The meeting will be during homeroom on Monday, in room 202.  This meeting is for both new runners interested in the program and for runners who have participated in the past. 

Graduation practice will take place during 1st hour Tuesday in the junior high gym. Please be sure you to dress as you will at graduation on Saturday, complete with caps and gowns. The class photo will be taken after practice.

The girl's track team had an outstanding performance at Friday's Sectional Meet at Nashville.  The 4X800 team of Laura Kreher, Emma File, Cassie Crabtree, and Alayna Toedte smashed their school record to earn the 4th place medal.  The 4X400 team of Laura Kreher, Cassie Crabtree, Alayna Toedte and Joelli Wahlig broke the school record as they earned a 6th place meda. Laura Kreher broke the school record in the 400 as she earned a 5th place medal, and the highlight of the evening was Dierrah Reese breaking her school record in the shot put by two feet and qualifying for the State Meet in Charleston as she earned a 2nd place medal.
