Happy February! We are already headlong into second semester and have a lot to celebrate! Our basketball teams are doing great heading into the playoffs, and our tennis and baseball teams have kicked off their seasons. We also have golf and track and our newest high school sport—soccer—to celebrate! We have had a middle school soccer team for three years now and are excited to expand it to the high school.

We also have academic opportunities that are worth some shouting! Our middle schoolers just racked up at regional science fair competition, and many will be heading to Athens in March to compete at the state level. Our Odyssey of the Mind teams are preparing for competition as are our literary competitors. There’s also FFA, FCCLA, HOSA, chorus, band, art, and many other organizations that give our students opportunities to learn and grow.

And don’t forget about the 7 Mindsets! This month’s focus is an Attitude of Gratitude, and students are competing in the Compassion Games performing Random Acts of Kindness all month! We have already shared a lot of kindness and look forward to many, many more. Be on the lookout for them throughout the community!
