Youth Services Center -Mrs. Stivers Needs Your Help:


In the Governor’s proposed budget, many programs, including FRYSCs, are taking a 4.5% decrease this fiscal year and a 9% budget cut for the following two years. In addition, we are likely to find that the free lunch numbers have increased which would make us all have even fewer dollars for our individual allocations.

The state is asking that we send this survey link to all our parents to complete. Please take the time and complete the survey.

Thank you,

Junior Parent Breakfast:

Tomorrow, Tuesday, February 9th, the counselors will be hosting a Parent Breakfast for junior parents in the morning from 8AM to 8:45AM. Topics will include what it means to be College and Career Ready, how to help your student prepare for the ACT, steps to take before your student becomes a senior and information about how your student can earn college credit through the Early College Program. Hardee’s will be be providing your complimentary breakfast and the meeting will take place in the Collins Library. We look forward to seeing you tomorrow morning!

West Middle Girls Soccer Try-outs:

WMS girls soccer try-outs will be February 18th and 19th in the WMS gym until 5:30. You will need a current sports physical and will need to have clothes for both inside and outside.

NTI (SnowGO) Plan:

Whenever snow is in the forecast from this point forward, there is always a possibility that we will be implementing a NTI (SnowGo) Day for students and teachers. If the district decides to implement the plan, media outlets will indicate it as “Shelby County Public Schools will be operating under the SnowGo Plan. There will be no classes on campus.” Meaning there will be school work and learning going on from 9:00am - 2:00 through the Chromebooks on Schoology. If you have any questions or need assistance, please let us know.

Science Class in Need:

I am looking to begin a collection of old pots and pans (preferably sauce pans), spoons, measuring cups & potholders that we can use for food labs in chemistry/science (as it is not preferable to make test tube rice krispies). If you have any old supplies like this laying around, I would love to take them off your hands! Please drop off donations to Leesa Stivers or email me at Leesa.Stivers@shelby.kyschools.us if you need me to pick the items up.

Thank you.
