On Friday, SADD organized a balloon launch to raise awareness on the importance of making positive and healthy decisions. Attached to each balloon was a short message, and information to contact the school if a balloon is found. Jackson Green is pictured leading the launch.

Congratulations to our Students of the Month. They are Colin Ash, Jared Gentry, Esteban Godoy, Jackson Green, and Blake Moore. Again, these students have set great examples for the rest of the student body by exhibiting Trust, Respect, and Responsibility.
This month we would like to spotlight Jared Gentry, who has made great strides in staying on task and raising his grades. He has shown great responsibility this year by being a courteous and conscientious student. Everyone is proud of his growth. Our Staff Member of the Month is Mr. Klinedinst. He has gone out of his way to meet the needs of his students. He is implementing creative ways to utilize math concepts in practical ways, especially with math lab students. His efforts are appreciated. Congratulations to all.
