Ava Cooksey, Will Carey, Harris Wellborn, and Allyson Slattery showed COURAGE when they stood on stage and were obliterated by the faculty competitors.  Nice try….

Sam Norvell showed extreme PASSION when he finished almost the entire Cannon XC Invitational race without one of his shoes! What an adaptive expert!

Hayden Bullard demonstrated TEAMWORK when he took a stack of trays back to the cafeteria!

Thanks Parker Cain for taking a bunch of materials to another teacher. I appreciate the effort and multiple trips!

Thanks to Dean DiVitis and Jordan Johnson for collecting all the trays in the Upper School building and returning them to your cafeteria.

Thank you Timmy Jones for being a peacemaker and allowing me to change you from a group on a last minute quest to keep sanity and group order. You are a rockstar!!!

We have a lot of exciting things we hope to do this year including serving in the Spanish Community, (YES THAT MEANS SERVICE HOURS) as well as some fun activities, like watching Spanish horror movies in the month of October and learning how to make Spanish recipes. We really hope you guys are as excited as we are! Our first meeting will be held on September 22 during Student Choice, so the Thursday after class trips are over. We will introduce ourselves to you all and discuss ideas for the future of Spanish Club this year. Hope to see you all there, Morgan Waite, Alex Holloway, Mary Edwards, and Mrs. Cabrera
