Medlin at a Glance

April 8, 2013

From the desk of Mr. Drewery

Good morning everyone!

I wanted to send out another round of thank you's for the fantastic job you did with testing last week. Your flexibility and willingness help above and beyond your normal duties is one of the many things that makes Medlin great. In addition, let's give one more round of "virtual" applause to Mrs. Kelcourse, Mrs. Nobles, and Mrs. Wickstrom for all of the work and time they put in to preparing and facilitating the whole process.

UIL results:

6th grade 2nd place

7th grade 3rd place

8th grade 3rd place

Thank you to Karen Myers for all of your hard work & organization, well done! Thank you to all of the UIL coaches as well, your hard work was evident in the results!

Please give a big congratulations to the orchestra students and Mrs. Lacefield. Both Symphonic and Chamber Orchestras won a Division 1 (top rating) trophy. In addition both also received Outstanding Performance awards for receiving 90 or above from all the judges! That is 4 trophies in all!!!

We have 9 more weeks of school - let's make them the best 9 weeks of the year.
