IMS has also been participating in Red Ribbon Week this past week. Students have had a lot of fun dressing up, competing in different competitions, and decorating doors while they learned about the dangers of drugs, alcohol, vaping, and smoking. Friday’s dress up day was a new one for our school. We partnered up and dressed up for Rhyme without Reason Day. This was so much fun, and we had some really great costumes. There were so many great ones, we decided to have a Facebook contest and award the winners with a Sonic drink of their choice. The student winners were dressed up as “Bob Ross” and “a thing of floss.” Congratulations Hunter Johnson and Evan Brumley! The staff winners were the 6th-grade teachers who dressed up as “the 1950’s,” “Swiftie,” “Thrifty,” and “Physical Activity.” Each hallway also had a door decorating contest. The 3rd place winner on the 5th and 6th-grade hall was Mrs. Booker’s Home Room, 2nd place went to Mrs. Brittany Osborn’s Home Room, and 1st place was earned by Mrs. Wimberly's Home room class. On the 7th and 8th grade hall, 3rd place went to Home Room, 2nd place went to Mrs. Walker’s Tech Team, and 1st place went to Coach Nunley’s Home Room!
The Halloween Dance was a success. We had a lot of fun and saw some amazing and original costumes. The funniest costume of the night went to Phoenix Haugh. The best costume went to Ty Crawford, and the most creative costume went to Scarlet Spaulding.
Basketball sat out Thursday due to a scheduling conflict with TC and Belmont football, but they hit the hardwood on Monday and took on Corinth at Corinth. On Thursday they will play Itawamba at Itawamba before coming back home next week to christen their own floor and take on SCA on Monday and Belmont Tuesday. Please come out and support your local teams. The coaches do ask that anyone who uses the gym to please not walk on the floor while wearing anything but tennis shoes. Boots and dress shoes scuff the floor which is freshly waxed for the season.
