CHAMP Shoutouts of the Week

"Hannah Hampton has done an amazing job getting her ALD work completed and submitted. She has no reliable internet at home. She gets in her car and drives around to places where there is internet connectivity to make sure she gets her assignments downloaded, completed and then submitted in a timely manner." 
~ Mrs. Myers

"A big CHAMP shoutout goes to Rico Harden, Div Patel, Riley Baswell, Alvina Shannon, Kaylin Foster, and Janiya Gilbert for staying on top of all of their online assignments and turning in creative and excellent work!"  ~ Mrs. Little

"I want to give a big CHAMP shout out to all of my AP Language students that are taking the AP exam.  They are all working hard to prepare for the exam with the added pressure of exam changes and online learning.  They are being very motivated to work in order to be prepared for the exam, all in a very honorable way." ~ Mr. A. Smith

"My CHAMP Shoutout goes to Laura Sosebee. Not only has Laura completed all ALD assignments, she has been the first one to complete and turn in assignments every week of ALD. Way to go, Laura!  I also want to give a class shoutout to my 3rd Block for completing the most ALD assignments and for having 100% participation." ~ Ms. Sparks
