The school will provide transportation for the physicals. The total cost for the bus and the physical is only $24, plus lunch money. Please take advantage of this extraordinary opportunity to get a TSSAA-approved physical (good for participation in high school sports next year for rising 8th graders!) for such a low cost.

A Message from Mr. Gilmore

I recently had the opportunity to visit Jamaica and while there, I came away with far more than just a tan.

The people love to fist bump you and greet you with the phrase, "Respect, mon, respect." In a country where poverty and wealth are parallel with one another in an alarming disparity, I couldn't help but think that respect is something that all members of the human race are entitled to, without regard to financial standing.

Another phrase that I heard quite a bit was "One blood." While racial and cultural differences are obvious realities, the fact that we all share the same planet and the same human rights indeed makes us "one blood."

A final phrase that I particularly liked was "In Jamaica we don't have problems, we have situations.'' How often we sometimes unravel and become so upset over an issue that is not truly a real problem, but instead a situation.

Each morning, several attendants raked the sandy beach in front of the resort with passion and purpose-a futile exercise as you can imagine, one that was soon undone by people heading for the ocean. This caused me to contemplate how sometimes we put extraordinary effort into a task that is not lasting and has little real impact.

Respect. Oneness. Situations, not problems. Work that is meaningful. My time on the island of Jamaica was short-lived, but it did cause me to ponder how my life can be so much better than it is and that I don't have to be in a tropical paradise to make that happen.
