League academy first middle school to implement program

Eric-Snow---2013

In 1998 on March 24, two boys met up in the woods outside their school in Jonesboro, Arkansas, after one pulled the fire alarm. Armed with thirteen fully loaded firearms, Mitchell Johnson, 13, and Andrew Golden, 11, opened fire on their classmates as they exited the building 100 yards away, killing five. Across the state in Springdale, Arkansas, two men feeling the impact of such a horrific event were compelled to do something to ensure that schools remain the safest place for children to be.

With the help of his friend, Jim Moore, founder of watch D.O.G.S (Dads of Great Students), started making steps in creating a volunteer program for dads to become more involved in day-to-day activities in the school. Watch D.O.G.S., a father-engagement and educational initiative of the National Center for Fathering, was designed to encourage fathers and father figures to be more involved in the educational process. The goals of the program are to enhance school safety and provide positive male role models.

Joyful-Harps-Christmas-Museum---12-12

Surrounded by the relics of civil war, the Joyful Harps rang out the joyous sounds of the carols of the Prince of Peace this past Friday night at the South Carolina 16th Regiment Museum.

An audience of well over 100 came to the museum to enjoy light refreshments, fellowship and a concert of Celtic harp music from the sisters Raquelle and Heather Sheen, who make up the Joyful Harps duet.

The sisters, attired in Civil War-period hoopskirts, played such Christmas favorites as Silent Night, What Child is This?, O Holy Night, Joy to the World and The Coventry Carol, to name a few.

animal-care-staffThis past Saturday, Animal Care sponsored a fun-filled holiday event for God’s precious animals and their loving owners.

The event had toys, bowls and homemade dog treats that the owners could buy as stocking stuffers for their furry friends for Christmas.

The highlight of the event was the picture with Santa. Dogs came dressed in their favorite holiday fashions from red velvet outfits to bows and ribbons; each animal was ready to sit on Santa’s lap. After getting their picture taken, their owners could sit at the craft table and create a picture frame as a gift to give to a loved one of their animal sitting with Santa.
