Kymel Williams - SOTW

“At the halfway point of our regular season, Kymel is leading the Spartans in scoring and rebounding. However, it is his daily work ethic at practice that most impresses. He brings it every day and is a great example for all of our young Spartan players.”– Don Hurlburt, Head Coach Varsity Boys Basketball

Lily Tillman - SOTW

“Lily has been a great leader for us on and off the floor. She is tenacious on defense and aggressive on offense averaging 13 points per game. She recently had her career high 22 points in a win at Oglethorpe County to lead the Spartans to a 13-1 overall record in our first 14 games. Congratulations Lily and thank you for being a great Spartan!” – Brian Olson, Head Coach Varsity Girls Basketball

January has been designated Mental Wellness month. It’s a month dedicated to you checking in with yourself and taking the time to improve your life in the areas that you can control. Many people do this in the form of resolutions but all of us can do this by reading and implementing some of the strategies in these Wellness Toolkits.  The Emotional Toolkit is a good place to start. If you need additional help on anything, know that Mr. Sears and others are ready and available to be helpful to you.
