Weekly Breakfast with the Tigers

Weekly the Tigers and cheerleaders have faithfully driven over to Electra Elementary to visit with students during breakfast.  This Friday, 10-23-2015, pink filled the room in honor of helping the America Cancer Society fight for a cure. It was so neat to see the excitement on the elementary student’s faces as the varsity and cheerleaders walked in.  Of course the Tiger was a big hit!  I have to admit, I loved seeing my now grown up ( 🙁 ) students who I dearly miss.

Electra Elementary’s Flags are Proudly Waving

Thanks to Cheney Electric’s time and efforts, Electra Elementary’s flags are once again waving. This year elementary has not been able to raise the flags because of years of wear and tear on the rope which finally caused it to deteriorate.   Through Cheney’s generosity, a new rope was put back on the flag pole.  Now Electra Elementary will have many more years to proudly fly the flags.

Groundbreaking starts Development for a New High School

On September 28, 2015 the ceremony for the groundbreaking for the new high school was commenced.  Mr. Hogue began the ceremony by introducing various key players that were vital for the development of the project.  He also gave a brief history of its development.  The Electra school board members ended the ceremony by breaking the ground and starting the development of Electra’s new high school.

Fire Prevention Month

Friday the Electra Volunteer Fire Department came to the Electra Elementary and demonstrated techniques used to extinguish fires to the students.  Each year the Electra VFD faithfully makes their yearly visit to the school during the Fire Prevention month.  We all must remember that the Fire Department runs on a volunteer basis. Our community and school extends our thanks to this group of men and women for their hard work and dedication.

Culpepper & Merriweather Circus Comes to Electra

Last Friday night, the circus came to town which was sponsored by the Electra Elementary PTO.  The Culpepper & Merriweather Circus presented two shows to our local community. The night was filled with dog and horse tricks, clown antics, aerial acts, and many other types of entertainment.  The town showed its support of the school sponsored event by filling the tent.

Tiger Spirit Alive for Electra’s Homecoming

 

        Town bustled Friday and Saturday with all of the Homecoming activities.  EHS Tiger spirit was alive and well in our small town.  It’s amazing how our small community works so hard to pull this yearly event off.  But…of course our town is amazing and so are the people of Electra.
        The Friday night’s game against Archer City just shows that our Tigers are a force to be reckoned with!  The Tigers secured a win again Archer City with a score of 34 to 14.  Then of course at half-time the band marched out on the field presenting the former Exes and the 2015 Homecoming court.  Hannah Daniels was crowned this year’s Homecoming queen.
        The Homecoming parade started out slightly wet Saturday.  However the people rallied together and were real troopers.  The parade went as planned.  It was spectacular as usual.  After the parade, you could walk down town for a car show, eat at the Chuck Wagon feed, check the Grand Theatre auction out, shop and buy from the from our local businesses and/or the community members that had setup small booths, or just visit.
        I heard someone comment that the “hometown atmosphere” in Electra never goes away.  I for one am proud of our small town and it’s people.  The town has a heart that beats from each of it’s citizens.  That is why Electra keeps going and it’s traditions live on.

 

 

Blackout Pep Rally Showed Spirit!

          Last night’s Blackout Pep Rally showed so much Tiger spirit!  Everywhere you looked, the gym was lit up with glowing lights of all kinds.  The cheerleaders put so much work into making this event a great success.  It was also great seeing all of the cheerleaders perform from the minor leagues.  And… what about those Tigers walking in with the our future Jr. Tigers!  This year’s Homecoming is coming along with a bang.  Come to the game Friday night to support the Tigers and be a part of all the Homecoming events.  Don’t forget the parade Saturday morning and checkout downtown Electra out!

Busy Week and We’re Behind!

 This week in our 5th and 6th grade Tech we have tried to figure out an app called “Dojo.” It’s not that we don’t understand it; the problem we have faced is getting the students access. They need their parent’s email.  Why does every company need emails and phone numbers 🙁 ?  Even when parents have signed up and given their emails, the students are still having problems getting access. I like the program but it is not user-friendly.  Unless they make major changes, I will probably go to something different next year.
           We are going to definitely start the blogs this coming week. I promise 7th grade!!!! I know some of you have waited on me. Speaking of the 7th grade, the Cubs have done pretty good in the football area. I hear the same for the girls in volleyball. I have pictures of the 7th grade Cubs, but I wish I had pictures of all of them and of the girls. Check out the picture the boys sent me!
 7th Grade Cubs          This week is homecoming.  What an exciting week!  Activities will be going on and former Electra alumni will be coming to town.  Each day there will be a dress-up day, so be sure to take part in that.  I love this time of year!  So much going on, and a time when people come together.  I know that God must love it too!
