It’s time for Homecoming! It is officially defined as the annual event held to celebrate returning alumni. This fun- filled activity will be held tonight during halftime of the Varsity football game against Windsor Academy. Festivities begin with the Homecoming Court parading around the field in convertibles before the game, but the highlight of Homecoming occurs at halftime when the queen is announced. This is not an event to miss!
The Homecoming Court consists of Anna Knox and Caitlyn Young representing the freshmen class; Alicia Peek and Matti Smith representing the junior class; Ashley Johnson and Grace Roberts representing the sophomore class; and Parker Kelly, Marissa Mooneyham, and JaDe Padgett representing the senior class. Cheyenne Galloway was elected the honor of being Miss Cougar by the PAC football team. When asked, the senior members of the Court explained how elated they feel to have been voted to the Court. Each stated she was shocked when so many of her peers elected her to represent the senior class, and each was honored when her name was called.
This entire Spirit Week has consisted of a theme for each day. On Monday, Piedmont students had the privilege of wearing college apparel; Tuesday was camouflage day; costumes depicting favorite characters were worn on Wednesday; Thursday was filled with nerd vs. jock; and, last but not least, extreme spirit wear was the fashion on Friday.
Student Council members planned this week and events. Our newly elected Council includes the following: president, Hank Strickland; vice president, Matti Smith; secretary, Talon Anglin; and treasurer, Brice Dodson. The representatives are Cheyenne Galloway and Morgan Tillman for 12th grade; Summer Collins and Haley Tyler for 11th grade; Chris McClain and Makennah Holifield for 10th grade; and Grayson Bradley and Alina Jablonski for 9th grade.

Students in Ms. Elizabeth Davis’s English class recently watched a documentary, Food, Inc, an educational film about food production and organic farming. The students had to gather information from the viewing and prepare a paper to evaluate our food industries as wellas analyze their own eating habits. The class also participated in a taste test comparing the look, smell, taste and texture of grocery eggs v/s farm fresh eggs. Hagan Hinson, a seventh grade student in the class, brought in the fresh eggs and showed the class examples of calcium deposits on the store eggs. The final verdict was that the taste of the farm eggs was creamier, but the look of the store bought eggs was more visually appealing.
How do you flirt with a girl?
Dear Lady Gaga?,
Sometimes it depends on the girl, you always have to smile, and be sweet. Don’t be too sweet though! It’s always good to show her that you are interested. Go out of your way to make her feel good. If you text her come out with a “hey beautiful” or something like that. Always be yourself. No girl wants someone who is nice to her when he is with her, but when he is around his friends turns into a jerk! With that being said ,the main things you need to do is be yourself, be sweet and let her know you are interested in her!
What do you do at a co-ed party?
Well, first it kind of depends on what type of party you are going to. Most of the time, it’s a place to socialize and get to know people who you don’t really get the chance to talk to normally. You can always meet new friends and just hang around with people outside of your comfort zone. Sometimes people play games, watch movies, and a co-ed party is definitely a time to eat good food! Pretty much just go and have fun!
Best of luck,
