Mr. Lipscomb's students are enjoying and testing their results of a two-week long Career Tech project. Students were required to design, construct and paint a racing car. Currently, the students are racing by class to see who has the fastest cars. The top three students with the fastest times from each class will race against each other to determine the final winners. Plans are for the top winner to be spotlighted in The Daily Home. Great job, students!
Ms. Webb recently assigned a two-week long "Black History" project for her 7th and 8th grade classes. The students were given a rubric of the grading procedure so they would know exactly what was expected of them. Students were also required to give an oral presentation of the person they selected for their project. These nice projects are on display in the main hallway of the 1st floor for your viewing pleasure.

We appreciate your cooperation.
Congratulations to the Ellis Emeralds Winter Guard of Zora Ellis Jr. High School for placing 1st in the Cadet Division at their first SCGC Competition held at Prattville High School.
After weeks of hard work, they eagerly performed their show "Boogie Shoes" to a very welcoming audience and came out on top of the competition.
Your next chance to see them in action is on February 26th at Hoover High School. The Hoover Competition is the closest contest to this area, so we hope that you will consider coming out to support these wonderful young ladies!
