Mrs. Uebelhor's English Classes

The English 10 classes learned to race like the Romans during their unit over Julius Caesar. Each class had chariot races and reenacted the event as if they were in Ancient Rome. While students raced in Circus Maximus, otherwise known at the school gym, other students cheered for their classmates on the sidelines. Together, students explored the ancient world and brought some of it mystery and intrigue back to the present!

The newly formed Latino Advocacy group elected the officers of Kevin Herrera, President, Gina Flores, Vice President, and Alexsandra Gonzales as secretary. The group took a field trip to USI and also attended a workshop at Jasper High School where they met with Jasper's Latino Advocacy Group. The group plans to help with the Latino Celebration that is scheduled for May 5 and the Latino Festival that is scheduled for August 31 and September 1.

Kindness Crew

During the first year of the Kindness Crew, the group focused on Kindness in the School and Kindness in the Community. We also had a Birthday Club committee. The Kindness in the school committee handed out treats to all students during the Random Act of Kindness Week and encouraged each student to do a random act of kindness over the weekend. They also did a school-wide clean up and plan to send the teachers a note of appreciation during teacher appreciation week. Plans are in the works to do a senior send off during May.

The Kindness in the community committee passed out cards at the nursing home during Christmas and they plan to thank the firemen and policemen with cookies during the month of May.

The Birthday committee handed out birthday cards and treats each month throughout the year for each student during the month of their birthday.
