CONCORD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL FIGHT SONG CHALLENGE
Senior & Baby photos are due Thursday, March 25th. Mrs. Osterhout will need wallet-size professional pictures sent digitally by email or USB. We would prefer the pose to be that of a traditional head and shoulders shot without props, words, or logos. Please inform the photography studio of these requirements.
For your Baby photo, a digital copy can be emailed to Mr. Couling (email@example.com) or a physical image can be brought in to Mr. Couling to be scanned and uploaded.
For more detailed information, please see your school email regarding senior photo requirements.
HIGH SCHOOL WRITERS RECOGNIZED FOR OUTSTANDING WORK!!!
The Jackson District Library Young Poetry Contest chose two of Concord High School's writers as recipients this year. Junior Lacee Girardin's poem "The Beauty of Night" received the third-place award for 11th graders in the county. While freshman Zakiyah Holmes' poem "Chicken and Dumplings" received the 2nd place award for 9th graders in the county. We are incredibly proud of both of these students for not only striving to write meaningful pieces but also for their bravery in submitting their work for this competition.
Congratulations Lacee and Zakiyah!
