Student Goal Setting

In working with kids and families for 25 years, I have had the opportunity to learn from fantastic teachers and administrators.  I have also been fortunate to read some great literature for professional and personal benefits.  Many years ago, I read a book on what makes families successful and a quote by Leo Tolstoy was included, “All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.”  If I change a few words, this quote applies to schools, “All successful schools are alike; each unsuccessful school is unsuccessful in its own way.”   In . . .

Basketball Season Is Off And Running

It's hard to believe that the first semester of school is already starting to wind down.  Its seems like every year the holiday season gets here faster than the last.  This is one of my favorite and most busy times of my year with basketball season being in full swing.  We have had a great start to the season as we are 6-0 to start the season.  We have already accomplished 1 goal this year which was winning the Novinger tournament for the first time since the 2006-2007 season I believe. We followed that week with another busy week this week.  We started . . .

Learning Life Skills

Mrs. Lunsford's Senior Seminar class has been learning about personal safety and how to cook and sew.   Barb Littrell visited the classroom to teach students how to be safe on a college campus and in everyday activities like driving and using technology. In our cooking lesson, the students each demonstrated a meal that could be cooked in a dorm room. We ended that lesson by having Jean Heman come and make homemade crescent rolls. Let's just say we were the envy of the school that day! Kathy Hatcher taught the students how to sew on a button and fix a hem. She gave each student a mini sewing kit for them to keep. We . . .

Thankful Project 2017

Hello, All!   I’m so excited to be back and working with your 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students this year.

This discussion is always interesting because it varies so widely from beginning to end of the project. Students are given time to brainstorm and write about these things, . . .
