NAHS students were terribly saddened this weekend to learn of the passing of one of our greatest teachers, Ms. Paula Windham. Our hearts and prayers go out to her family, as we will miss her smiling face every day. We will all truly miss a truly wonderful, optimistic, wise, and inspiring teacher. Even though her presence is gone, her memories and impact will forever stay in our hearts and will never be forgotten.
On a happy note, congratulations to our undefeated football team for yet another victory against Shannon in division play. This win capped off the division win for the tea, and made our record a perfect 10-0. This Friday night is senior night, so all seniors will be recognized before the game. We will play another division game against Tishomingo County, though we already know that we play Rosa Fort the following week for round one of playoffs. Congratulations to the guys for playing a perfect season so far.
NAHS Gifted art students are face painting (Glam-or-Gore) at trick or treat down town this week.
