HMS students celebrate their 2014 TCAP scores

On August 29, HMS students had a blast at their TCAP Celebration, courtesy of Principal Yvette Blue and friends and supporters at First South Bank. “We send a special thanks and big ‘WOOHOO’ to First South Bank for sponsoring our student TCAP Celebration,” Mrs. Blue said. “We also send a special ‘shout-out’ to Della Ligon, Karen Shaw, and Lisa Lewis – all First South Bank representatives.”

The Warriors enjoyed a day filled with an inflatable obstacle course, a bungee run/jousting inflatable, volleyball, Frisbee toss, jump ropes, hoopla hoops, flag football, bouncy balls, basketball intramurals, and a movie! To add to an already high energy and fun day, there was a dunk tank! Mr. Bontrager and Mr. Grissom were the Dunk Tank targets! ” It was a good day,” Mrs. Blue said.

HMS former 8th graders also celebrate their scores

The HHS Class of 2018 celebrated its 2014 TCAP scores/8th grade scores on Friday, September 5, when Principal Blue took the festivities to the front lawn of HHS.

Principal Blue said, “The current freshman played a significant role in HMS being named a 2014 Tennessee Reward School, and I felt it was appropriate to celebrate with them in addition to celebrating with the current students of HMS. I am thankful to Principal Jerry Pyron and Superintendent Teresa Russell for allowing me to do so.”

Ms. Blue also sent a special “thank you” to Asst. Principal Tim Seymour, custodians – Mr. Delk and Mr. Perry, HHS café manager, Ms. Jarrett, Ms. Dumanic Wade and the HHS Drum Line, and DJ Cotton for their roles in making it happen.

Ms. Blue sends a big “WOOHOO” to the HMS team members who demonstrated the essence of a Warrior – Grover Harwell (who grilled almost 300 burgers), Robert Matthis (volleyball and dodge ball duty), and Krystal Hawkins and Michelle Brasfield, who worked side-by-side with Ms. Blue serving lunch to each HHS freshman.

“It takes a special person to be a Warrior, and I’m proud of my team,” Mrs. Blue said. “Warriors rock!”

Mrs. Blue added, “The students had a great time! We are proud of the freshman class, and we expect many more great accomplishments from the Class of 2018!”
