    Congratulations Jade Richardson, Andrea Lucas, and Janay Stallworth for coordinating the Emaje models performance directly before Thanksgiving break. The fashion show was well attended and the students enjoyed the show!

    Our Middle States evaluation visit was excellent thanks to the hard work of Nicole McLaurin and Khaisha Charles! They are commended for doing a fantastic job of preparing a thorough site visit for the Middle States team. Thank you to our teacher panelists who contributed valuable information to the visitation team: Dr. Regina Young, Wrenetta Green, Tanya Adkisson, Bianca Kennon, Jasmine Stewart, Avery Tooley, Alicia Staton, Tracy Newman, Angela Brown, Dr. Carlo Parapara, Sharon Weaver, and Frances Campbell. Thank you to Tania Chandler and Elizabeth Dennis for serving on the parent panel. Thank you to the classroom teachers who opened their doors to the walking team whether scheduled or not: Dr. Regina Young, Connie Findley, Ma Roima Lim, Wrenetta Green, and Shannan Dudley. A special thank you to Laverne Coleman-Brooks for helping the day of the site visit. Finally, I wanted to acknowledge several additional key team members who contributed to make the site visit a success: Natoya Coleman, Angela Jackson, Dr. Portia Barnes, Alphonso Jiles, Brian Makell, Byonka Gregory, Dr. Cathleen Rozanski, Deborah Royer, Tyrone Hicks, Karess McNeil, Monique Dandridge, Edward Truesdale, Ernest Green, Michael Whitley, Lawrence Sator, Chris Bethea, and Daryl Carroll. This was a total team effort!

    Congratulations to head varsity football coach DaLawn Parrish on guiding the Pumas back to the state finals and continuing a two-year winning streak! This is an awesome accomplishment!

    Karess McNeil and Charlene Cherry did a wonderful job organizing our first quarter honor roll assembly and our November PBIS skate parties! Special thanks to Curtis Crayton for deejaying the parties for the students. Great job!

    Thank you to the full staff for helping bring back order to a chaotic situation the Friday before Thanksgiving break. It was a difficult day. We are continuing to work with key involved students to make for a positive end result.

    Kudos Natoya Coleman for conducting a data analysis and goal-setting workshop with the Puma Pride students. This activity was designed to inform and motivate our students to succeed. Wonderful work!

    Welcome back Rebecca Castle and Laverne Coleman-Brooks! You both have been missed.
