Happy Sunday! We hope each of you had a great weekend and that you are ready to start a new school week tomorrow!

*Lorelei Jernigan was selected to the Middle Tennessee Vocal Association Elementary Honor Chorus. Congratulations!
*At the first Middle School swim meet on October 31st, MTCS placed 11 out of 24 teams!
Lily Resha took a 1st and 2nd in her events.
Isabella Gilbert took 7th in both of her events
Emma Resha took a 2nd and 8th in her two events.
*It is that time of year when the weather begins to cool down. For most it is a great relief from the summer heat, but if you are homeless, it is a time of difficult and sometimes dangerously cold nights. We have teamed up with Barnabas Vision to help the homeless in our community. We are asking for your old coats that are still in good condition. Youth and adult sizes are needed. If you are able to donate a used coat, please bring it to homeroom teachers or Mr. Cooper in room 208 in the high school hallway.
*It is that time of year again!
THE BOSTON BUTT SALE. The softball team is selling Boston Butts for a fundraiser. Please support this effort. They are wanting a new back-stop for our field, and need your help!
The Boston Butts are fully cooked 6-8 lbs. and ready to eat when you pick them up.
The exciting news is that Rick's BBQ is smoking them for us this year!
They will be ready for pick up on Tuesday, November 24. And that is right before your Thanksgiving guests arrive! You can also freeze them.
$38 will feed 20-30 people!
