Dear editor,

Last week the staff at South Athens Elementary held a TAKS Blitz in preparation for the third grade reading TAKS. The students and staff were enthusiastic as they reviewed TAKS objectives in fun and meaningful ways. As a reward, at the end of the Blitz, third graders climbed a rock wall as a symbol of their determination and confidence.

South Athens Elementary would like to thank our local Brookshires for the donation of large paper bags for the students’ vests. John French of Party Jumpers donated and delivered the impressive rock wall free of charge. We also extend thanks to the Athens Daily Review for its excellent and timely coverage of the event.

It is wonderful to be a part of an exemplary community that is so supportive of our students.

Thinking Exemplary,

South Athens Elementary staff
