The Grenada School Board has decided to adopt an “abstinence only” form of sex education to be compliant with a new state law.
According to Lynne Russell, director of community services, school districts across the state are required to teach sex education at all levels under a new law signed last year by former Gov. Haley Barbour.
“We have always taught an abstinence program, and our current program is in compliance with the new state regulation,” Russell said during Tuesday’s meeting.
The current program will be expanded to include all grades. Before, it was just taught at the middle school and high school, according to Russell.
“The program will teach abstinence, but it will be at an appropriate level of understanding for each grade,” Russell said.
Under the new law, the decision was left up to each school board as to teaching abstinence-only education, which teaches that abstaining from sex is the best way, or a comprehensive class called abstinence-plus.
In the comprehensive setting, the student would learn that abstinence was the best way, but would be taught safe sex practices, about birth control and the different sexually-transmitted diseases.
The board unanimously approved the program with a motion by District Two Board Member Dr. David Braswell, seconded by District Three Board Member Arlene Conley.

Other business

The board entered into executive session with a motion by Braswell, seconded by Hughes, to discuss potential litigation and personnel issues.
According to Daigneault, no official action was taken, and he could not discuss specific details of the executive session.
This is at least the first known executive session the school board has entered into that excluded the taxpaying public.
All board members were present including District Five Board Member Keith Watson.

SENIORS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello everyone. What’s up? Things here are going get. This week we had the senior auction. Most of the money that was earn went to Mrs. Hardman’s family. Then on Friday there was a pep rally. It was a little bitter-sweet because that was the last pep rally I will be attending in high school. 😦 Yesterday, I had to take the ACT. So anyways, this week we have the senior slide show. We were supposed to have it Friday but it was moved to this coming up Friday because it wasn’t  finished. I’m so going to miss high school after I graduate.(well some stuff I’ll miss anyway) I’m still looking for ideas for blogs so when I come up with some I’ll be sure to post them and let me know what ya’ll think. Later!

seniors!!!!!!

hey! Sup!?! So anyway it’s been a couple of weeks since school has started and I’m already asking myself where has time gone.  I was looking at some of my baby pictures and it got me to wondering “Has it been that long?” It’s almost to scary to think that in just a matter of mouths I’ll be a high school grad. It still feels weird being a senior. Hmmmmmm……………………………I hope i get used to it before the year ends and I’ll be posting more blogs a long the way. Later guys!

Homecoming

Hey people what’s up? Things are going great here in Mississippi. What’s going here is homecoming. This year we get to do stuff that we haven’t down in a while. Such as tacky day and twin day. This year, however, we get to do something new (or at least for me anyway). This year we get to have a cartoon day. This is the one day were we get to dress up and be our favorite cartoon character. From what I hear from my friends there is going to be a wide rage of characters that are going to make an appearance. Everything from Spongebob to Final Fantasy. This is going to be an interseting day. We’ll just have to wait and see. Later guys!

Hey guys! What’s up? I know it’s been awhile since I told you guys what’s going in school. So here we go. Homecoming week is coming up is coming up and you know what that means. It’s the time were everyone gets to act crazy! This me and my friends get to wear our togs, seeing how we’re seniors this year. This we’re having this thing called the charger olympics. It’s where students can compete in games and win prizes. I’m not sure what else next week will hold but I do know this it will be a crazy week for everyone.lol So anyways back to this week progress reports are coming out this week, hopefully I made good grades so far. Well, that’s about it. I’ll try to post something else soon so look for that and please leave a comment and tell me what you think of my posts.

The “last” first weekend

Ok, I know I should have posted this sooner,  but the “last” first weekend  has come for the seniors of 2012. Yes, sadly it has. For me nothing much has happened this past weekend just went to church and that’s about it. I wish I had done more and made it memorablybut I didn’t. 😦 But the year isn’t over yet so maybe something will happen. I’m sorry for not having much to put in this post, but the year is still early so I’ll try to make my post more interseting for ya’ll. If ya’ll have any ideas for blog posts please comment below and I’ll see what I can do. I want my senior year series to be interseting for you guys. I’m hoping to post some poems on year as the year goes by so be looking for those, and I’ll proably do some posts on more youth teips I go on so be looking for that as well. I’m sorry  if it seems that I’m going on and on. Really I am. So be looking for more posts, and I’ll see ya’ll later bye

last first day of high school

Well, this was my “last” first day of school. It was ok. I only had five classes.(that may change) I still don’t know why they messed up my classes.(talked to the people who are in charge of that and didn’t get many answers) But, other than that things did go pretty smoothly for the most part. My teachers are great.(but we had a sub. in one of my classes) My only concerns for right now are my credits and the ACT. I’m soory I dont have anything real interseting to put in todays post, but I’m hoping that I’ll have some things to put as the year goes on. Oh yea there is the whole issue about how I’m getting home. If my dad comes and gets me then I’ll have to rod the bus in the morning or I can either get one of my senior friends to take me home or I can stay in the library and catch the bus home. I’m not sure what I’m going todo yet, but I’ll let ya’ll guys know. Later!
