Mr. Fleming is the leader of our “pack.”  This reporter was able to interview him about our school and ways education can help students.

Mr. Fleming wanted all of the students to, “Be grateful for your teachers and trust them.” He said that students should thank them frequently for all that they do for them, that students should try to get the most out of their classes.  They will be grateful for it in the end. When he was a teacher it felt really good for a student to come up to him and thank him for the job he was doing.

First of all, members from our staff took a trip back in time with Michael Jackson’s hit song, “Thriller”. Mr. Ferrin sang an interesting song called “Rainbow Connection” by The Muppets, and was accompanied by Mrs. Coxson playing the piano. Mr. Bake played on the guitar and sang for us a song written by: Conway Twitty, called “She Thinks I Still Care”.

Heroes aren't just comic book characters or people you see on TV. They don't have to be able to fly or turn invisible. They don't have to have super strength or x-ray vision. They are just everyday people, the people we see walking on the sidewalk or the kid who says “Hi” to in the hall. These people can be heroes, and we may not even know it.
