CCHS students led a local See You at the Pole (SYATP) gathering this morning. SYATP is a global initiative in which students lead groups in prayer and reading of scripture at their flag pole. It is traditionally held on the fourth Wednesday in September. This morning’s event was led by Shelby Hillebrandt, Lydia Risk and Coy Willhoite with a special emphasis on prayer for CCHS teacher Lynn Eaglin.
Second graders learned about adaptation and migration during a lesson on birds taught by 4-H Extension Agent Joyce Doyle. Each group had information about different types of birds and tools that would simulate the bird’s beak. They had to determine and document which instrument was most like the bird’s beak. These students are in Ms. Pirtle's class at Cartmell Elementary.

ATTENTION SENIORS GOING ON NEW YORK CITY TRIP!
The food pantries and Share Shed at Carroll County High School and Middle School are both open. Students can obtain quick serve food items through both food pantries. Hygiene items are also available at CCHS through the Share Shed, a separate offering that was created last year by CCHS alum Samuel Gray. High School students can select their own food and hygiene items from the Share Shed that is outside the school building near the FFA rooms. Middle School students can select food from their pantry as well by contacting Youth Services Worker Shelby Jones. Grab-and-go food, such as microwavable macaroni and cheese, beef jerky or peanut butter and crackers, are best for the students, said Kameron Melton, the CCHS senior who is in charge of the food pantry and Share Shed this year. “Almost every other day it’s nearly empty,” Melton said of the food pantry and Share Shed. He noted small packages of Kleenex, toothpaste and toothbrushes as well as bars of soap are in high demand. Donations for both food pantries and the Share Shed are being accepted at both schools. Please contact the Middle School at 502-732-7080 or the High School at 502-732-7075 to arrange a drop-off time.
Attention dual credit students! The KHEAA dual credit scholarships are available. The regular dual credit scholarship is for "academic" courses -- these scholarships are available to juniors and seniors (up to two each year). The work ready scholarship is for "CTE" courses -- these scholarships are available to dual credit students in grades 9-12 (up to two each year). If you have a combination of dual credit courses (JCTC full time or block and dual credit at CCHS, ATC, or iLEAD) you will very likely need a combination of scholarships -- Ed Excellence, KHEAA regular and work ready. If you are unsure which scholarships you should request, please see Mrs. Raisor, Mr. Rose (ATC), and/or Mrs. Gray (iLEAD). It is very important you request the correct combination of scholarships to assist with as much tuition coverage as possible for your different types of courses. The deadline to apply is Oct. 1, but you are encouraged to have preferences set by Friday, Sept. 29. See the attached directions for more information.
