Eagle Pride Representatives
During our recent Homecoming Week, students and teachers selected several students from 6th-8th grade as Eagle Pride Representative Nominees. Nominees are chosen based on school spirit, extra-curricular participation, and demonstration of respect towards God and others. One overall Eagle Pride Representative is then selected from that group. Nominees included: Zoe, Jesse, Olivia (6th grade winner), Gavin, Reagan (7th grade winner), Luke, Lilly, Tatiana, Anne Elise, and Jonathan (8th grade winner). Congratulations students!
Our Junior High music group, J-1:7, went on a field trip to perform at the Mobile Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
