Students of the Week

This week we honor two musicians as our Students of the Week!  Cyeria Allen (left), a senior was named to the 2019 All-Virginia Choir.  Samantha Foley (right), a junior was named to the 2019 All-Virginia Band.  Both students had to go through a highly competitive audition process for membership for a limited number of the best high school musicians in the state.  Amazing accomplishment from two talented Tigers!

Staff of the Month

Miss Ruby, Bus 448Most of you who have not ventured out to the bus ramp don’t know Ruby Warner, our latest Staff of the Month, but we have come to rely on her generosity in filling in for missing buses and taking extra runs on a daily basis.  Miss Ruby will come back time and time again to make sure all of our kids get home.  She will take any of our runs, even some that could be challenging to someone who does not have her ability to maintain discipline without screaming and yelling at kids.  Our students know she is there for them and they respect her for taking on the extra challenges each day as we scramble to find ways to get our kids home.  We owe her a great debt of gratitude; thanks from all of Tiger Nation, Miss Ruby!
