All School News: October 24 – October 28, 2016

Fall Festival

The annual Fall Festival will take place on THIS SATURDAY October 29 from 10AM-3PM on campus. There will be many games, activities, prizes, and auction items for all! We encourage you to bring your family and friends and enjoy this wonderful event!



This year we are adding a Scarecrow Contest to our Fall Festival Activities. Students are invited to create to a Scarecrow that will be attached to a fence at the front of campus. Scarecrows should be constructed with durable materials (as they will be outside) and all items secured to them. Each must have support for the body which will be wired to a fence. Entrants should provide materials for attaching it to the fence. All entries should be installed between Noon on Friday, October 28 and 9:50AM on Saturday, October 29. Entries should be removed on Monday, October 31st at 3PM. (We ask all entries remain on campus through noon on Monday, October 31st.) Judging will begin at 10AM on Oct 29 and run through 1:30PM that day. Festival Participants will judge the entries. Questions regarding this new contest can be sent to Sally Allen at

Be sure you are planning to be at the Fall Festival Silent Auction in the gym to bid on some of the awesome, one-of-a-kind items that have been donated this year. All auctions will end at 2:00pm. You do not have to be present at the end of the auction but it is preferred, especially if you have bid on edible items.

Among other items, this year’s auction will include the following…

  • An American Girl doll- Isabella
  • Lunch and guided tour of the courthouse with Mayor Durrett
  • Disney Park Hopper 4pack
  • Original artwork by Billy Renkl, Susan Bryant, Phyllis Covington, and Ginna Holleman
  • Piano lessons with Ann Clem
  • Predator’s tickets
  • Nashville Symphony tickets
  • Orca cooler
  • Gift cards for spa days, Publix, Wofford’s, and more!!




School Photos

Retake Day is Nov 3 for anyone who did not have their photo taken during school photo day. Students in Lower School will also have their class photos taken on this day.



Need poinsettias to make your home look festive for the holidays? Beginning, November 9th, the Junior class will be selling assorted sizes of red or white poinsettias. These plants will be delivered right before the Thanksgiving break and will come straight from the grower. The Juniors appreciate your support as they fundraise for the prom!


After School Enrichment

We are pleased to announce that our After School Enrichment program will begin next week! We have two wonderful offerings—Cursive Writing with Mrs. Marla Clemments and Drawing with Pencils and Pastels with Mrs. Shelley Holt. Registration is online here.



Throughout the year if you take photos at various school events and would like to submit them for possible use in the yearbook or for marketing purposes, please send them to
