What are you thankful for?

Thanksgiving Fun Facts

Did you know: On Nov. 20, 2007, President George W. Bush granted a “pardon” to 2 turkeys, named May & Flower, at the 60th annual National Thanksgiving Turkey presentation, held in the Rose Garden at the White House. The 2 turkeys were flown to Orlando, FL, where they served as honorary grand marshals for the Disney World Thanksgiving Parade.

Did you know: Snoopy has appeared as a giant balloon in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade more times than any other character in history.

Did you know: Though many competing claims exist, the most familiar story of the first Thanksgiving took place in Plymouth Colony, in present-day Massachusetts, in 1621. More than 200 years later, President Abraham Lincoln declared the final Thursday in November as a national day of thanksgiving. Congress finally made Thanksgiving Day an official national holiday in 1941.

Did you know: Native Americans used cranberries in a variety of foods, including “pemmican” (a nourishing, high-protein combination of crushed berries, dried deer meat, and melted fat). They also used it as a medicine to treat arrow punctures and other wounds and as a dye for fabric.

Did you know: According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the largest pumpkin pie ever baked weighed 2,020 pounds and measured just over 12 feet long.

Wake Up Wednesdays

Wake Up Wednesdays

Teachers & staff at the Fayetteville City Schools have started a wonderful new venture this morning called 'Wake Up Wednesdays'. Tricia Jean (Assistant Principal at FMS), Rose Murray (ESL & Special Ed Teacher), Christine Tuten (Special Ed Teacher), Tim Hobbs (4th grade teacher), and Brett Spray (Assistant Principal at RAS) met bus drivers early this morning to ride along on their routes. "We sat at the front of the bus and greeted the kids with a 'good morning' as they got on the bus, shook hands, and had conversations. Their faces lit up as they saw us.", said Brett Spray. "We encouraged them to have a good day as they exited the bus. We were given hugs, handshakes, fist bumps etc. It's the little things like this that will go a long way in building the family dynamic and improving our climate and culture." Teachers & staff will ride the buses with students every Wednesday morning, greeting students as they start their day.

 


 

We will have follow-up Flu Shot Clinics on November 28th at all 3 schools. For more info, please call Carla at 931-433-5542.

 ACT Bootcamp at FHS

Fayetteville High School hosted an ACT Bootcamp during fall break. The ACT bootcamp provided students with a comprehensive overview of strategies for all parts of the ACT. Students worked with the latest materials, all of which were provided at no cost to the attendees. While FHS offer ACT prep classes throughout the year, the bootcamp served as a more focused, intensive approach to prepare for the college entrance exam.
Each day focused on a different subject. Students could choose to attend specific subject days or the entire workshop. The bootcamp instructors provided subject specific strategies for success and guest presenters covered general test taking strategies and ways to combat test anxiety.
A special thank you to our instructors, Mr. Jason Caldwell, Mr. Adam McCormick, and Mrs. Kathy Holland. Also, Mr. Josh Caldwell from Motlow and Mrs. Carla Warden the Fayetteville City School Coordinated School Health Coordinator. We would also like to commend all the students who invested time during their fall break to attend the bootcamp!
