We received a visit this week from Deborah Bales of the Arkansas Department of Education. She was on campus to review our Alternative Learning Environment (ALE) program. On the whole, the visit went well. Mrs. Bales was very impressed that we have incorporated ColtFlex into ALE, and she was also impressed that we have a content teacher in ALE during each flight. I really appreciate the work of Denise Forister, who has devoted considerable time and energy to our ALE program the past three years!
On Tuesday of this week, some of our JROTC cadets presented the program at the meeting of the Osceola Rotary Club. The program was on the service learning project our cadets completed last year. Zante' Harris, Kalandria Ingram, and De'kes Slayton presented the program.
I am very pleased to announce that two of our juniors, Bruce Colbert and Jenna McCullar, will be attending the American Legion Boys and Girls State this summer. Boys State will be held on the campus of the University of Central Arkansas from May 28th to June 2nd. Girls State will be the same week, on the campus of Harding University in Searcy.
Those students who are enrolled in JAG (Jobs for Arkansas Graduates) this semester will be going on a tour of American Greetings today. I appreciate Sebree Bird for setting it up and LeeAnn Graham for accompanying them as an additional chaperone.
