Middle School Love

It seems that on the middle school wing of the building we have two new love birds! Just today Ms. Snowgirl Christmas tree in Mrs. Misty Dowdy's classroom has spotted Mr. Snowboy Christmas tree across the hallway in Mrs. Patty Melton's class. As you know there is never a dull moment with the happenings of middle school and these "love-birds" are sure to provide much drama over the next several weeks.

At end of the Homecoming Activities Emma Zachary, Savannah Hammock, Jodi Daniels, and Sydne Denney were crowned class Princesses, and
Tristan McClellan was crowned as the 2011-12 Homecoming Queen.
