November's News

November brought an end to very successful Volleyball and Football Seasons.  Several of our Jr. High Basketball games, were cancelled, but both boys and girls teams worked hard and ended their season with wins against Northside Methodist.  

Unfortunately, November also brought us several cases of Covid, which meant quarantine for several students and teachers.  Thankfully, we have weathered the storm and we are all anxiously waiting our Thanksgiving break.      

News From the ELA Department

Who says learning can't be be fun!  Although COVID-19 has cancelled the regularly scheduled fall festivities at Ariton School, the ELA department and English students have been studying Gothic literature, reading Halloween-themed informational texts, listening to eerie podcasts, and creating some spooktacular assignments to celebrate Halloween while learning.  Come by and check out some of our awesome students' work.
