Are you interested in bird watching? If you answered yes to that question, you are in for a treat tonight. Our volleyball BlueJays travel to play the East Prairie Eagles. While Eagles are majestic, I think the BlueJays can show why we are clearly the better bird. JV will start at 5pm tonight and varsity will follow. If you answered no to bird watching, you can attend our JH girls basketball game as we welcome the Delta Bobcats to the Ridge. They will play one game only starting at 6pm. Also, just a couple things for next week's schedule. It's girls night on Monday as our JHGB team will play one game vs Advance starting at 4:30pm. Then we will change gears to HSVB with the Woodland Cardinals coming to town. What better way to spend your Monday night. Also, our JHGB game that was scheduled for Thursday 9/29 has been changed to 9/30 @ Woodland with a start time of 4:30pm. The girls will play before our JH boys. The JH girls basketball game that was schedule at Meadow Heights on Friday 9/30 will most likely be changed to 9/29 with an early start of 4pm, but I am waiting for final confirmation from Meadow Heights. I will let you know as soon as I have confirmation. I do apologize for the changes but just like us, schools have several activities going on and change is inevitable . If you have any questions, please let me know.
Congratulations, Mrs. Fronabarger! She has received the pineapple award this month at the Jr High/High School. This is a new teaching/learning program to share engaging teaching strategies among teachers each month. She was the first person to put one of her lessons on the pineapple board which invites others to come watch her class. She did Lego cups on the first day of school. Which teacher will be next? The winner receives fresh fruit and 2 Jean day passes, one for themselves and one for a colleague. Great Job, Mrs. Jess!
Come see Mrs. Holmes and the high school band tomorrow at the East Perry Fair!
Super proud of our kids and the job they did at the SEMO District Fair. Check out the video. Please share.... https://www.wevideo.com/view/2800042582

Announcement from Coach Seyer regarding the XC meet on 9/20/22 at Oak Ridge. Because of the predicted heat on Tuesday, we are changing the race schedule a bit. We will push the first race off until 5:00 in hopes that the weather begins to cool off by then. We will not be running a Varsity and JV. We will just run everyone together and score the top 5 for each team. 40 medals will be given out for HS Girls and Boys and 25 for each Junior High. The schedule will be as follows: ALL High School Girls--5:00 ALL High School Boys--5:45 ALL Junior High Boys / Girls--6:30 (5 minute delay between boys and girls) If you are able to help out around the course on Tuesday, please meet me at the ball field at 4:15 so I can give you a spot to watch! Thanks for being flexible with our good ole Southeast Missouri weather!
