This week is an A week and today is an A Day.

Don’t forget your CRAZY SOCKS today!!!
Today we want to spread awareness of myotonic muscular dystrophy, the illness that affects Alex’s father. We would like to show our support and awareness of this illness by participating in the “Socks on Challenge.”  Wear your craziest socks today in support of Mr. Wiggins and other individuals affected by myotonic muscular dystrophy.
Congratulations to our newly elected Student Council!

Mae is the heart and soul of our team. She is such a good senior leader and is always striving for the best for herself and her teammates. She is focused and consistent on a daily basis and is a true student of the game of volleyball – always searching for tactical and strategic understanding of everything we do. Mae is a great example to our whole team of what it means to give effort and to give to others selflessly. Congratulations, Mae and GO SPARTANS!” – Jane Thomas, Head Coach, Varsity Volleyball

The Watson-Brown Junior Board of Directors offers an opportunity to perform community service while simultaneously gaining practical skills in administering a substantial sum of money to fund local historic preservation projects.

The Junior Board is made up of seven to twelve 10th-12th grade students in a 14 county area surrounding Athens. Board members are chosen in late September and will attend monthly meetings (usually one Wednesday evening a month) to learn about philanthropy and historic preservation and how to read a grant application and conduct a site visit. Members are then trusted to conduct site visits in pairs or small groups and then make a recommendation to the entire group about whether or not that site should receive funding. The members have a yearly allotment of $33,000 to give to local organizations for historic preservation needs. The application is linked below. The deadline to apply TODAY!!!!
