Our next Cheerleading Tryout practice is tonight from 6:00-7:00. Attendance is not mandatory but the gym is open for those who wish to come and get any extra assistance.
Baseball and softball little league forms are coming home today or tomorrow. If you are interested in your child playing please fill it out and return to school by Feb. 27th. That way we can decide on teams before the leagues deadline. If you turn in a form to the fitness center and want to play on a Jonesboro team, please tell the school. That way we can get the teams correct.
Tonight is Senior Basketball Night for our graduating basketball players. We will be honoring our basketball class of 2020 boys and girls in between the varsity boys and girls games.

And then second grade does this to me.....100 days of school counted out in 10 groups of 100 which all equals 100 carbs...but very worth it!
Tues (2/4) - JV Boys @ Penelope 5 PM VG/VB @ home 6 PM
One of my favorite days of the year is the 100th day of school. The big kids pair up with the littles to read and take AR tests. The interaction between the grades is heart warming. The projects from the littles show so much personality. It’s truly a fun filled day. Thank you to the teachers for coordinating the efforts for today. The kids, and I, love every minute.
Congratulations the the Jonesboro Consumer Judging kids. The Intermediate team 2 won 4th place and Willow Holland won 4th place individually in the competition in Gatesville today. Keep up the good work! Thank you to Tina Janke for guiding the kids on this adventure!
Eagles and Lady Eagles basketball has the night off (1/31). Return to action next week on Tues in Lometa.
Congrats to the Jonesboro fishing teams!
