IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR SENIORS
Hello Class of 2022,
I wanted to send out this reminder that the majority of the local Concord scholarships are due by the end of the school day on March 22nd.
Reminder, these 4 scholarships must either be handed to me directly OR you can hand them to Mrs. Couling in the main office - directly - face to face.
- Beryl & Margaret Luttenton Scholarship
- Bruce & Pat Klett Scholarship
- Buskirk Memorial Scholarship
- Dr. and Mrs. Keefer Scholarship
There are other local Concord student scholarships that are also posted in the Class of 2022 Google classroom There are different instructions for how to turn those in and it is important that you follow the directions on those applications. Their deadlines are fast approaching as well.
The deadline for the Sigmund Scholarship is also approaching. This one is also Jackson County local and is up to $5,000. There is one for college and one for the trades. Here is the direct link to it again:
Please remember that the only guaranteed no to a scholarship is the one you do not apply for...
YELLOWJACKET OF THE WEEK
Check out our amazing, humble YellowJackets of the Week!
Imagine you are playing football at recess with your friends and someone scores a touchdown- after scoring the point they throw the ball to a teammate, smile, and say thank you to teammates who are congratulating them. Then, another person scores a touchdown and immediately begins running around the field while holding the football, yelling ‘I’m the best!’ and pointing at themselves. One of these people is being humble and grateful, while the other is being arrogant and boastful.
It’s good to be confident in yourself and always strive to be the best you can be… yet, truly successful people strive to not only be their best, but show greatness in how they celebrate their talents! Being humble (or showing humility) is about being modest and respectful while also celebrating successes in a non-boastful manner.

READING GIVES YOU SUPER POWERS!!
March is Reading Month activities begin Tuesday, March 1. Our theme will be “Reading Gives You Super Powers” as we celebrate throughout the month with fun dress-up days, weekly prize drawings, special visitors, and more.Children are encouraged to read at home, with a daily goal of 15 minutes for a kindergarten-2nd grade, and a daily goal of 20 minutes for 3rd-5th grade. Minutes may include your child reading to self or to others, or you reading aloud to your child. Keep track of minutes on the reading log for all reading done at home, and return it to school each Thursday beginning March 3rd for a chance to win some awesome prizes each week. Students meeting the minimum weekly goal will receive one ticket for the weekly prize drawing. Students doubling the goal will receive an extra ticket. The more they read, the more chances they have to win! Stay tuned throughout the month as we announce more special activities.
