Cheer and Dance Tryouts
Blanca Rodriguez and Sidney Whittaker
Waiting their turn to try out for cheer and dance, nervous teenagers felt the anxiety ooze. Before official try outs, students attended a mandatory meeting with their parents. Mrs. Storey and Mrs. Holland discussed expenses of being on a spirit squad, expectations, spring schedule, and deadlines for paperwork and physicals. Students also collected teacher recommendations, learned skills at clinic, and practiced through mock try outs.

A committee is currently planning multiple events to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the opening of Kimmons Junior High. We are looking for Kimmons alumni, parents and former teachers who may have photographs or memorabilia they would like to share for us to showcase in these celebrations.
Please check out our "Kimmons Junior High 50th Anniversary" page on Facebook to contribute, reminisce and get updates on events that are currently being planned.

This past summer, our Partner In Education Georgia Pacific, sponsored 9th grade Civics teacher Jennifer McKinney at the Bill of Rights Institute's "Founders Fellowship". Mrs. McKinney was one of 20 educators chosen from hundreds of applicants across the country. She traveled to Washington, D.C., in July to participate in the intensive workshop focused on the Constitution and Bill of Rights. In addition to work in the classroom and lectures from a West Point Military Academy professor, she and other participants visited the National Archives, George Washington's home Mount Vernon and toured the monuments on the National Mall. Mrs. McKinney also had some personal time to take a guided tour of the U.S. Capitol, courtesy of Senator John Boozman's office, as well as visiting the U.S. Supreme Court, the Library of Congress and the White House. She is very thankful to Georgia Pacific for providing this opportunity for her to enrich our students' learning about our nation's government.
