First Semester is Passing Quickly
November already? This semester is cruising to an end when holidays are figured into it. Austin Black Bears and teachers are busy in every facet of school life. We have just completed individual ACT Goal Setting with our juniors under the direction of Assistant Principal Michael Bobbitt. Staff from Austin and the Central Office met with each student to talk and let them set goals for themselves in preparation for the ACT in March. Our Black Bear Varsity Football team goes to meet the Thompson Warriors in Alabaster on Friday, November 8, in the first round of state playoffs. The basketball teams will appear tonight (11/7/19) in the Black Bear Gym as AHS meets Columbia in the tip off. Wrestling will begin on Nov. 19. Students and teachers are creating, exploring and learning in FACS, FBLA, Ambassadors and every other activity. Students involved in DARC are going to State in Auburn. The AHS Band swept top honors in every category in competition. This is by no means a list of everything occurring at Austin. We appreciate and are thankful for our Black Bears and all of their family members.
