Family Concerns

  • Please keep Annette Wolverton and her dad, Frank Odom, in your thoughts and prayers. Mr. Odom had a quadruple bypass and is having complications.


  • The game atmosphere was awesome! I had so many people comment on how "new and exciting" everything looked. The flags were a fantastic touch! Opening up the Jr High concession was a good idea - kudos to the thought person behind that. White Oak was jealous of everything except the score :).

  • Kudos to Becky Smith for answering the call when I was desperate for a driver to fill in the first week of school. ~ Tony White

  • I just wanted to take a minute and say how thankful we are as a 4th-grade team for Jazmyne Baker! She is consistent in her work, her helpful attitude, and her gracious way of offering help! We couldn't do our jobs we'll without her...she is priceless!! ~Kerri Darby

  • Meagan Gibbons is doing such a great job at implementing technology and using Doceri in her classrooms. She is so innovative and has begun recording her 5th-grade math lessons and uploading them to her teacher webpage! I love having her on my team because she is so willing to try new stuff and learns it all so quickly! ~Kristi Hopkins

  • I Had several parents comment on the enthusiasm that the coaches showed in all games - Jr. High, JV, and varsity. A big call out to James Hardin! At the Jr. High pep rally, he introduced all the 7th & 8th-grade football players by name without notes and with infectious excitement (must have been 80-90 boys & he never missed a beat). Then during the games that Thursday night, he energized and continued to encourage the kids through all the plays. Awesome to see and hear about!

  • Kudos to all of the little league football teams and cheerleaders. Such a joy to see all the young students come out and be a part of the celebration.

  • Kudos to our varsity football players! They have been coming to our Fabulous Fridays and serving as great role models for our Primary students!! ~Mrs. Turner

  • Thank you to my incredible office staff! They have enrolled many new students and helped in too many ways to count!! ~ Mrs. Turner
