Veterans Day Program
By: Brittani Webb

On November 12, Arp ISD honored our nation’s veterans by hosting the annual Veterans
Day Program. As the veterans entered the auditorium, the band played service songs. The pro-
gram began with the saying of the Pledge of Allegiance and followed with the singing of the
National Anthem. Several students sang songs that reminded us of everyone who fought or
who is currently fighting for our freedom. Our schools, friends, and family came together to
honor the great men and woman who served our wonderful country through song and speech.
First Sergeant Chase Colbert had the opportunity to welcome the guest speaker Staff Sergeant
Frounfelker, who gave an important message about his experience and what it truly means to

serve for our great country.


A Message From Our Counselor, Mrs. Lowery

We are at the midway point in the school year and there are a few reminders I would like to share with
our upcoming graduates and their parents:

 Start writing your college essay
 Keep track of due dates—Start using a planner
 Check college prices & talk with parents about money
 Practice and take ACT or SAT if you haven’t already
 Visit colleges
 Apply
 FAFSA should be complete!!!
 If you are a recruited athlete, complete NCAA clearinghouse form or NAIA forms
 Narrow college list
 Don’t forget community service ----opportunities everywhere over the holidays!!!
 As a high school senior, it’s very easy to continually look towards the future and not focus on

the present. However, don’t lose sight of your current responsibilities (scholastic and extra-
curricular). You need to remain in good standing academically in order to graduate and retain
your college admission offer.
Most of all I would like to tell everyone Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and leave you with
the following quote:

The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in
each other. – Burton Hillis

ward to most and tries to encourage students to do everyday. Mrs. Gentry went to
