As a reminder, the Veteran's Day Program will be held on Friday, Nov. 9, 2001, at 10 a.m. in the MHS Gym. We would like to invite all veterans, spouses, family members, and the general public to attend this annual event. The veterans and the Lady's Auxiliary members of the Veteran's of Foreign Wars Post 4057 will provide lunch after the program.
My quote this week comes from The Holy Bible. It is the Lord's Prayer, found in the book of St. Matthew chapter 6, verses 9-13, and it reads, "Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. They kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For this is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen."
Have a safe and happy Halloween everyone!

Greetings from Shannon High School! It has been a beautiful and sunny week.
Our softball team has had a wonderful season this year. They defeated the No. 1 team in the state - Grenada - last week, 9-7 in the second game of their series. Unfortunately, they lost the third game in extra innings. It shouldn't have been hard to get over, however, because this year's team set the school record for the most wins by ending the season 23-8.
Our football team has also had great triumphs lately, winning their game against Amory, our archrival, 24-10.
We recently participated in the Voice of Democracy Oratorial Contest. The winners are: Courtney Hester, first place; Andy McMullan, second place; Jason Elzie, third place. Congratulations to all the winners.
Our band will compete in the state competition this Saturday. Good luck to everyone in the band.
"The Lord detests men of perverse heart, but he delights in those whose ways are blameless. But be sure of this: The wicked will not go unpunished, but those who are righteous will go free." (Proverbs 11:20-21).

This week at Saltillo High School, we are busy as usual. The ACT was given last Saturday. It will be given again in December. The packets for the December test need to be turned in by Friday. The Balfour representative will be at our school Friday, Nov. 9 in order to assist seniors in ordering their graduation invitations. A $60 deposit should be brought.
Our organizations have several projects. The FFA had eight students attend the National FFA Convention Oct. 24-27. They seemed to have had a wonderful time. They heard several excellent speakers such as Dick Vitale, Bob Love and Suzie Humphreys. The Jr. Civitans are planting three trees in our schoolyard in memory of Corey White, Casey Parker and Tim Hale. The Student Council will attend a workshop Nov. 8 at Mississippi State University.
Our cross country team competed in the district meet this past Saturday. Our girls came in first. The boys tied for first, but lost the tiebreaker. Congratulations! The state meet will be this Saturday in Clinton. Our girls team will consist of Natalie Bruce, Mindy Pounders, Jennifer Faulkner, Linkie Badenhorst, Amanda Kent, Cassie Bailey and Kayla Killough. The boys team will consist of Jay Clemons, Jerry Stablein, Lane Turner, Tony McCarly, Jeremy Sanders, Clay Taylor and Don Greenwood.
This Friday is our last football game of the season. We will play Shannon at home. The time has been changed to 7 p.m. instead of 7:30. Please come out and support the Tigers!
As the football and cross country teams are coming to the end of their season, basketball is just getting started. The girls basketball tournament began Monday night.
That is all for this week. I hope you have a great rest of the week.
God bless! -Phil. 4:13.

Hello from TCPS. This past week has been a fun-filled time at TCPS. Last Wednesday, we participated in Pastor Appreciation Day. The students at TCPS invited their pastor to a breakfast where they would be honored for their hard work. Forty pastors came where they were treated to a special program put on by the first through fourth grades and fifth-eighth grade choir, and a breakfast bar.
On Friday, we took part in the Global Outreach Mission Conference. We started the day with a concert by Contemporary Christian artist Nia. Then different missionaries went to individual classes and shared about the work they are doing in foreign countries. Afterwards, the seventh and eighth grades went to Faith Christian High School for a student rally.
Also this week, the first graders took a field trip to a pumpkin patch. The second grade had Fairy Tale Day and the third grade had Hobby Day. We have had a very enjoyable week. God bless!
