Thomas Hunter Middle School has done a great job recruiting participants for the 2015 Scripps National Spelling Bee. 24 students have completed the registration process and it is expected that more students will turn their forms in soon. The first official bee will be held on November 20th @ 1:00 PM @ THMS. The school bee will be followed by the District Bee on
December 18th and the Gloucester-Mathews Scripps Regional Spelling Bee on February 28th. **** The Christmas stocking event, Sewing for Literacy, has begun!. The stockings will be on display at the Courthouse Restaurant beginning November 28th until December 20th. Whatever your material of choice is, (fabric, yarn, paper, duct tape) the Blue Ribbons will be awarded for best design, most unique and highest bid. You are encouraged to “do your thing” and produce a stocking to help ALMP raise funds to continue its free, 1-2-1 tutor program to help the adults in Gloucester, Mathews and Middlesex Counties improve their basic educational skills. Call ALMP (804-210-9169) if you have questions. **** Aziz has successfully completed all the steps needed to become an American citizen; he is waiting for the date when he takes his Oath of Allegiance. **** The meetings continue at this busy time of year.
