Last week, several teachers at Jemison Elementary School were awarded PEECH Grants. Betty Giles and Pennie Broussard, members of the PEECH Grant Committee, brought the good news and presented the checks to the fortunate teachers.
Since educators are experiencing trying economic times, these grants were appreciated and will be used to purchase needed items for the classroom.
The recipients were: Jill Davis, Stacie Childress, Lynn Price, Lisa Short, Hollie Connell, Alex Ellison and Samantha McClendon.
This week is National Breakfast Week. The theme is “Ready, Set, Go.”
The lunchroom ladies at Jemison Elementary School spent this past weekend decorating the lunchroom with a race car theme.
They also developed a menu to go along with the theme. Students were served “Ready, Set, Go Sausage, Biscuit, and Gravy” on Monday for breakfast.
Our lunchroom ladies always go beyond the call of duty to provide our students not only with a wonderful breakfast but to entertain and make the students’ meals enjoyable.
We are very fortunate to have such caring and talented lunchroom ladies.

Louise Pitts is the principal of Jemison Elementary School.
