Attention Eastern Junior Class: This is Ben Reed with the Farmers Bank, and we are excited to announce a relaunching of the Farmers Bank Junior Board of Directors program! This program takes juniors from Eastern, Meigs, Mid-Valley Christian School, Southern, and Wahama and teaches them financial literacy and the key building blocks for running a business. The meetings are monthly, starting in October and run through April. We believe that the program has offered tremendous value for students, and we are excited to take it in a new direction this year. In past years, the program was geared towards running a bank. However, this year, we are excited to reshape the program more into a Shark Tank model. The students will be tasked with creating a viable business that would fit the local market. Additionally, we are planning on having a few local entrepreneurs come to the meetings to share their experiences with the group. Our hope is that this will change the previous format that a was a bit lecture heavy into a more interactive experience for the students. Any prospective junior wishing to be part of the Farmer's Bank Jr. Board of Directors needs to pick up an application in the high school office. Applications are due by October 2nd at 2:30pm and must be turned in directly to Mrs. Pore. Approximately five junior students from Eastern Jr./Sr. High School will be selected.

Some of the most meaningful experiences come when we step outside of the classroom. Today, Mrs. Williams' College Composition students took to nature to hone in their sensory and descriptive writing skills. They put their toes in the grass, on the rocks, and in the water to fine tune sensory language. They will be using this skill as they continue to develop their literacy narrative throughout the writing process. I think it's safe to say that they enjoyed themselves.

The Meigs County Fair was quite eventful for the Eastern FFA program. Between taking market projects, pallet projects and assisting with the program of activities for the livestock judging contest, Eastern FFA was successful in their doings. Two Eastern FFA members brought projects to the fair. Laikyn Davis showed a feeder calf and submitted a pallet project, receiving a first place ribbon for her pallet project, and receiving a reversed champion ribbon for records kept on her feeder calf. Gavin Murphy showed a market turkey where he went on to receive reserved champion showmanship and grand champion market turkey. We would like to thank DPC Fabrications and Tenoglia & Salisbury Law Group for supporting Gavin in the livestock auction.

Just a reminder for drop offs in the morning: Doors open at 7:30 and the Tardy Bell is 7:45 with lots of leeway the first couple weeks. K-3 students are along the curb in front of the Elementary, 4-6 students are behind the school by the softball field, and 7-12 students are along the curb by the Student parking lot. Please do not park and walk your student to the door. Pull up as far as you can and let your students out. Please do not walk them to the door. We have a lot of people to get in and we want to keep everyone safe. Thank you and have a great first day.
