Art show in the works

Back again! With more stories from the halls of YOUR hometown middle school.

You will find short pieces below related to areas of learning and fun in our building from Classes and Sports to Hawk Life, Student Spotlight, and our new focus on College & Career awareness.

Showcasing a wide variety of the positive happenings at Clinton Middle School: College and Career Academy is Hawk Talk’s first priority.

Basketball season heating up

As the cold set in last week, our Clinton Middle Hawks Boys Basketball team started to heat up.

Our boys won three straight last week, starting with a huge wing against county rival, Norris last Monday and had a double overtime win against Union Grove, a district rival, on Tuesday. Then, Thursday night at home, the Hawks beat Sevierville in overtime at home, 50-45.

On the Norris game, one player told us, ¨They just couldn’t stay with with us. We were just more physical than them.”

Let’s continue to show our full support for our CMS basketball teams!

Thanksgiving Food Drive a success

Hawks Helping Others is back at it again with another food drive! This time they collected food and donations for the families that can’t get enough food for Thanksgiving.

One of the sponsors for Hawks Helping Others, Ms. Clark said, “I think that while we didn’t get a lot of food donations, we got a lot of money donations so we could buy the food needed.”

Last year, when raising food for Thanksgiving they fed 25 families, while this year they fed 50 families. CMS owes a huge thanks to Legacy West for donating 16 turkeys. We would like to thank them for helping the families in need.

When asked about food drive, 8th Grader Samantha Allen, a member of Hawks Helping Others, said, “It was good because we got double the amount from last year.”

In the next term, various students will be participating in the Mr. Richardson’s Hawk Time Enrichment class.

These students will be working for nine weeks, four days a week for 30 minutes to submit their own art piece for an Art Show.

Mr. Richardson will provide all of the supplies for the students. They can choose what material they want to use, such as a canvas, cardboard, clay, pottery, ect.

The art show will not be in the format of a competition. It will give all students an opportunity to present a piece of artwork that they are passionate about.

Until next week...
