MILLSAP MATTERS: Registration times for Millsap elementary students announced

By SHARRON HUDSON

MILLSAP – As we head into August it’s getting time to prepare for the kids to head back to school. On that note, new Elementary Principal Cathy Bradshaw has information she wants to share on registration for the younger students.

Millsap’ s new elementary students will register on Aug. 7, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Returning students will register Aug. 8, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. For returning students this is a time to update information, fill out forms for the new school year, pay the school supply fee, and find out which class the child will be in.

This campus’ Meet the Teacher Night is Aug. 22, 6-7:30 p.m. You will find school personnel ready and happy to assist you at the elementary school building on all of these dates.

With the beginning of school comes the students’ football season. A much-anticipated event in Millsap is the annual high school “Midnight Madness.” Everyone is invited on Aug. 5 at 12:01 a.m. to come out to the high school football field and watch the Bulldogs team begin summer preparations for the 2013 season.

Then, on Aug. 9 at the high school football field the Millsap Booster Club is sponsoring “Meet the Bulldogs” night. Beginning at 7 p.m. all coaches and players will be introduced, and refreshments will be served by the Booster Club. The community is invited to these activities to support the coaches and players.

Newberry Church had a nice addition to a recent service with a branch of the Newberry family traveling in from Oklahoma and the Panhandle to visit. They are cousins to local Pat Newberry and had such a good time they are planning on coming back for the church family’s homecoming celebration.

The homecoming is planned for the fourth Sunday in September. Many attend this event, so it’s time to mark the calendars for a day of good Bible teaching, food and visiting!
