Hey Big Sandy Community: Well, the cold front has come in! In the morning, at the bus stop, the weather forecast shows the temperatures to be in the 20s. The precipitation is supposed to stop before any freezing temperatures hit, and with the amount of wind we will experience this evening, the precipitation should all be dried out. We will keep you updated if anything changes. Bundle them babies up before they head out to the bus stop in the morning! Go Wildcats!

Wow! What a week we had last week! Yamboree is always a 'yamming' good time, and our kids came out to shine in all that they did! We are so proud of all of our organizations that took part in the Yamboree Contests, not to mention the Cross Country Teams on Monday, the UIL Marching Contest last Tuesday, the Volleyball games, and the several Football games! It all started on Monday, with the Cross Country Teams competing in the District Cross Country Meet in Union Grove! The Varsity Boys advanced to the Regional Cross Country Meet, to be held in the coming weeks! They finished as District Runner-up! Then, on Tuesday, the Wildcat Band scored STRAIGHT 1s at the UIL Marching Contest, to begin their straight 3rd year of Sweepstakes Band! On Tuesday, the Volleyball Teams won vs Union Grove in 3 straight sets! On Thursday evening, at Union Grove, the Varsity Football Wildcats got that "W", 27-19! For the Yamboree, we had many students in both parades, on Friday and Saturday, anchored by our very own Miss Big Sandy, Katie Parker, and Mrs. Big Sandy High School, Maci Childress! We had so many kids involved on floats, such as Pee Wee Cheer and others! At the Yamboree Fairgrounds, the Wildcats FFA and Ag Mechanics students cleaned up and I mean cleaned up, once again! We won the Overall Reserve Champion Sweepstakes FFA/Ag Mechanics Program! James Briscoe won Grand Champion Swine and Jaxson Croley won Grand Champion Goat! We also won Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion Non-Sale Shop Project, as well as Reserve Grand Champion Sale Project! Many of our kids won Blue Ribbons, as we had almost 50 shop projects entered into the Ag Mechanics show! We had 11 FFA students make the sale on Saturday, with their Animal Projects, in all 5 Animal Shows! We had students make the sale in Broiler Chickens, Market Rabbits, Goats, Swine, and Steers! The following is a list of those kids that made the sale: Jaxson Croley- Grand Champion Goat Lorin Drennan- Goat Kaiden Dunn- Goat Lainey Childress- Goat Victoria Hill- Goat Canyon Minter- Swine Madison Ratcliff- Broiler Chickens Raven Williamson- Market Rabbits James Briscoe- Grand Champion Swine Lane Carlson- Swine Kenzie Johnston- Steer Thank you to the sponsors of the FFA, the Wildcat Band Directors, our Coaches, our Cheer Sponsors, and the many parents and volunteers it always takes to pull off a successful Yamboree Week! Thank you to all of the sponsors and directors for working together to get all of our kids to where they needed to be on time each day! And remember, it's a great day to be alive, and a great day to be a Wildcat! Go Wildcats!
