       GREAT LUNCHES IN THE CAFETERIA
We want to remind parents that the most positive way to ensure your child eats in
the lunchroom and not at the snack vending machines is to open an account on line
and add funds to your child’s lunchroom account.
It’s quick and easy. Just access www.forrestcountyahs.com and click on the link
MyNutriKids.com. Just follow the simple directions and add money to your child’s account.
If you do not have access to the web, or you do not have a credit/debit card or PayPal account,
please send a check or monies to Mr. Tom Chambliss to insure the monies are noted to the
child’s account. Should you have any questions concerning current account stand-
ing, etc., please call Mr. Tom at 601-582-4147, extension 142. We want our
students to eat a balanced, healthy meal; NOT SNACK FOOD.

Meet our new Principal, Mr. Loren Harris. California boy, turned Mississippi Man! We are so
pleased he chose to come to our school. In a statement made to our students and the faculty, Mr.
Harris stated, “Mississippi has challenges, but we also have great opportunities”! “Challenge
yourself” is what he asked of students and faculty alike. He stated, “Our goal here is to teach all
the students; strive to exceed the student’s potential and make a difference!” “We have great
learning tools with the technology of today that will enable all of us to achieve. Our school’s ac-
countability is at a very high level. We will teach our children at that higher level and commit to
connect, inspire and achieve with each and every student.”!


   Please give Mr. Harris a warm welcome to “Aggie Country”.
