Coach Pete’s group of 8th grade guys worked super hard this morning! Coach Brandon, with HP track, is building a long jump pit. The guys worked to loosen dirt and move it to create a border around the frame.
Eight sophomore girls, Mrs. Christopher and Mrs. Brandon, spent four days during GoWeek partnering with a non-profit organization called Hand To Hold. This non-profit offers “in-person” and “virtual” support groups and resources for NICU families. This international advocacy group reaches out to moms wrestling with the dire needs of their babies in the Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Hand To Hold provides tangible resources—-and we were invited to be a tiny part of that.

Mrs. Adair & Mrs. Carlyle advisories enjoyed seeing the fruits of their labor come into fruition on Wednesday. The students who worked outside finished removing old mulch from around the gardens and spreading new mulch. They finished various outdoor landscaping projects, and the results were beautiful! The students working in the food pantry were able to assist local residents with getting the items they need. This social interaction was extremely rewarding for both the students and the people coming into the shelter.
Today we finished up filling the flower bed with weed barrier and rocks! We put up a windshield in front of the fence. We also wrote cards for the girls!
Freshman students have been building picnic tables this week at the high school. (turquoise tables) These tables are used as a gathering spot for ministry or just a good conversation. The boys put the tables together and then painted them.
