Spirit Day is just around the corner. We have a group of teachers that have taken over the planning of our Spirit Day. Everyone is hoping to have a fun day for the students that focuses on spirit and less on mean spirited competition. We have heard from students, parents and teachers in the past how they would like the event to be something that brings the school together in a positive and inclusive way. Stay tuned for all the details coming soon on the website.
Homecoming is always an exciting time and this year we are happy to announce the boosters association has organized the rental of lights so the team can play a night game under the lights at our own field. The game will be October 19 at 7PM. I hope you can all come out and see a great game. The Homecoming Dance is Saturday, October 20 from 6-10 in the Gym. This dance is only for high school students and guests no older than 20. Tickets are on sale now at our lunches.

Our accreditation visit is over and although we will not have the final report for about 4 months, I do believe it went very well and we can expect some good recommendations for improvement and growth. I do want to share an overwhelming feeling from the team of educators. "THEY LOVE YOUR KIDS!" They could not say enough about your children. I am not surprised by that as I see what they saw everyday. You have done, and are doing, a wonderful job with your children. I hope, as a school, with our Core Values of Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Perseverance and Kindness we support your efforts when we are entrusted with your children on a daily basis. I was VERY proud to hear such nice things about our students. The visit is over but the work of improvement continues. Thank you all for your support through the process.

Come see the next great production of the Senior High Drama Program
Can I have the definition? Join an eclectic group of six mid-pubescents as they vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box. A riotous ride, complete with audience participation! Three audience members at each performance will have their chance in the spotlight spelling alongside our cast. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius. Come join in the fun!
