Any student interested in entering this year's Voice of Democracy Speech Contest should see Mrs. Hogg for details.  This year's theme is "My Responsibility to America."  Speech recordings will take place in early October.

On September 24th, the Zombie 5k will be held here in New Athens. If you would like to volunteer to dress up as a zombie and work the Fun Run and race, there will be a sign up sheet available in the office. If you have any questions about volunteering or the costumes and makeup needed, you can ask Bailey Lance, as she will be the one doing the volunteers' makeup the morning of the race.
