From the Superintendent
Our Open House for prospective families seems to have been very successful. Many families visited the school that evening. Eight new students registered for the 2009-2010 school year that night, and others have registered since then. Special thanks go to LACE, PTF, and BBB for helping with refreshments that evening.
I also want to thank PTF for all that they did on Teacher Appreciation Day last Friday. Thanks to Mrs. Angela Ramsey, the PTF president, and the rest of the PTF members, for the wonderful food and other special touches they provided last Friday to make our teachers feel appreciated.
We have had new students enroll who live in Cannon and Coffee counties. We will reinstate the bus route next year. More details about the cost will be provided in the near future.
Last Wednesday, sixteen of our students were treated to lunch at Pizza Hut by the BBB club. This was recognition for being the top sellers in their recent fundraiser. The students traveled in style to Pizza Hut in a Hummer limousine provided by All O-K’sions. Thanks to Pam and Miles Wilson for their generosity in providing transportation.
The middle school Beta club trip to Huntsville will proceed as scheduled this Wednesday and Thursday, May 13 and 14.
Lunch Menu for May 12-18

Scholarships Available for Pre-Kinder
We have recently learned that we have up to three scholarships available for pre-kinder students through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. No one has applied for these scholarships yet. These are federal dollars which are available and are based on financial need. If you have a child who you would like to enroll in pre-kinder for next year, or if you have friends or relatives who might be interested and may be able to take advantage of this opportunity, please contact the school office.
Please remember to tell your relatives and friends about the addition of our 3 year old pre-kinder class. Interested families should register their children right away. Some parents have inquired about the possibility of 3 year olds attending part time. This may be a possibility, but we need to make sure that parents who want to enroll their child full time have the opportunity to do so. Also, in order to offer the program, we have to have a minimum of seven full time students, or the equivalent.
