Elementary Parents: For those that are remaining virtual we need the support of parents regarding our biggest concern. Students are not completing and submitting assignments within the scheduled deadlines. During the first five weeks of school teachers gave students daily practice activities to make sure students were able to access assignments. Teachers post deadlines for online assignments to ensure they are graded and posted in HAC to monitor the students average in each subject. Parents, please monitor your child's work so they will receive credit and not a zero for incomplete assignments.
Tiger Nation Update: As you all know, over the last couple of weeks our community and our school have been hit hard with COVID-19 cases and quarantines. Our numbers in this area are still extremely high. However, at this time with limited exposures, our teaching staff is in a much better place with our positive cases and Close Contacts. That said, the positive cases in our community and in our district are still VERY HIGH. It is for this reason district administration in consultation with the Department of Health and the Department of Education has established a plan for next week. Students will be given the option to continue with virtual learning or return to face-to-face instruction beginning Monday, Nov. 16. The staff will, as always, work diligently to maintain social distancing and enforce masks but also understand the fear that you may have about sending your child back with the current situation. Please continue to be vigilant in our fight against COVID 19. If your child is showing any sign of illness, PLEASE do not send them to school. Also, if your child has tested positive or is a close contact please notify the school. Stay safe and stay healthy!

Reminder: Students who are doing virtual work need to stay on pace and be in contact with their teachers daily. For those who will return to campus, your work needs to be complete before your return. All work assigned will be graded and zeros will be given for not complete. Per handbook. students with unexcused absences can only receive 50% credit on all assignments missed on those unexcused days. We understand that with virtual learning, issues arise that make completing assignments on time difficult. Because of this, it is imperative that you contact your teachers and the administration so we can support. It is easier to handle issues on the front end rather than the back end.

We asked who she is most grateful for and she said, "I'm most grateful for my parents, my mother and father-in-law, my amazing husband, and my little girl for motivating me and helping me get through my senior year. They are my biggest supporters and I love them with everything I got." Congratulations GraceAnn!

Leighandrea is most grateful for, "actually graduating because of the simple fact a lot people doubted me but I proved them wrong." Congratulations Leighandrea!
Evan Jenkins is today's senior spotlight. When we asked how she feels about her senior year ending this way, she said, " I never imagine this happening to me. It’s hurtful, it's really a big disappointment! I can’t believe I’m not celebrating prom nor experiencing walking the stage, or saying goodbye, see you later, to my classmates. It’s all crazy, heartbreaking when you look forward to things that you wished happened forever. But I most definitely can say I am, did, and going to graduate despite what others may say." Evan's response to who she is most grateful for, " I am so thankful, for my son Ace Chan DaMan. If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t be were I was today and going hard as I do. I really do appreciate him weather he know it or not, not only cause he's mine, but because he motivates me, we can enjoy the small pleasures of life, humor, the beauty and life in nature. I love and I’m thankful his little touches, kisses, and hugs the most, it’s like everything better. He was the ability to change by life with one good decision." Congratulations Evan!

Emily Atteberry is the daughter of Angie and David Atteberry. After high school she plans to attend ANC for 2 years for general studies and find a career path while working part time and then transfer to complete her degree. Emily's thoughts about her senior year ending this way, "I’m very upset by how my senior year ended. Me and my classmates have missed several events that we have waited so long for. Even though I wasn’t a student at Armorel my whole life, my most important years were spent there. I never would’ve except something like this to happen, especially this fast. I have much love for the Class of 2020." When asked who her hero is and why, she said, "I would say my grandmother Jean Atteberry is my hero. She is my best friend, she has taught me everything I know. She’s been with me through everything in life and always gives the best advice. She’s the most kind hearted and strongest women know. I hope to grow to be at least half of the woman she is." Congratulations Emily!
Jaelyn Ray is the daughter of Wendy and Chris Ray. After high school she plans to go to ANC for 2 years to get her basics and then she will transfer to ASU to get her bachelor's degree so that she can teach high school theatre. When asked how she feels about her senior year ending this way she said, "Honestly, high school had its ups and downs, but if I had the chance to do it all over again just to have a normal senior year I would. All of my life I have seen people in their cap and gown and I always thought "wow, I can't wait for that to be me." Well, now it is my turn, but it's not how I expected it to be. We don't get a proper last day, we don't get a senior luncheon, we don't even get a completer's luncheon. All of these events that we were looking forward to were taken away from us. We all had our last day and didn't even realize it. I don't really remember what I did on my last day, or if I was even there, and that's what's really sad about all of this. We didn't get to go all out like we did for our first day. Our first day, we had confetti cannons, went into the hallway right before the bell rang, and then when everyone walked out, we shot the confetti cannons and started yelling and laughing, it was great. All we did for our last day was walk out of the doors just like we did every other day, because we had no idea that it was all over. I just hope that no other senior class ever has to go through this, and that after this year every other senior class will know not to take anything for granted." Jaelyn's advice for incoming freshmen, "Enjoy high school, don't complain about it being hard. Don't drop a class because it's a little harder than you thought, don't skip just because you feel like it and remember to treat your teachers right, you might not know it, but they love you. These are the best and worst four years of your life, cherish them, and make memories." Congratulations Jaelyn!

Kaitlyn Walters is the daughter of Stephanie and Brian Walters. After high school she plans to attend ANC to obtain an Associates of Science in Business and later transfer to earn a bachelor's degree. Kaitlyn's feelings about her senior year ending this way, "I hate that the “perfect” end to my senior year that I have long been anticipating has been stolen from me and my fellow classmates due to the virus. There were many crucial once in a lifetime moments that I will never have the opportunity to experience again. The class of 2020 share the same feelings and the majority of us are at a loss for words. All we can think about is what should have happened and what we regret not doing when we had the chance. However, rather than dwelling on what could have happened I am excited for what lies ahead of me and I am trying to look at things in a positive way. Life moves on and all that I can do in this moment is prepare for my future. I thank all the teachers and family I have supporting me during this difficult time." Kaitlyn's advice for incoming freshmen, " do not miss out on a single opportunity. Try out for every sport you want to play and take every class you wish to take. Don’t promise yourself you will do something later in life, do it now. Go to every school event and be as involved as possible. You will make the most unforgettable memories by doing so. Take an abundance of photos with people you know and of everywhere you go. You will thank yourself later. Don’t be afraid to stand out dress however and do what truly makes you happy. Be different, drastic, and creative but most of all do not fear failure because it's good to know that you tried when you had the chance than to have regrets." Congratulations Kaitlyn!

McKenzie Tillman is the daughter of Chad and Tiffany Tillman. After high school she plans to attend Williams Baptist and start her major in nursing. When asked how she feels about her senior year ending this way McKenzie said, "Honestly I am really heartbroken my senior year ended this way. I have attended Armorel since I was in Kindergarten and never in a million years would I have thought that I would be saying goodbye to my childhood home so early. I am definitely going to miss going out to eat with the class every Friday and causing trouble everywhere we go. I regret not holding onto all my friends and teachers." When we asked McKenzie when she looks back on this school year in later years, what would she remember the most, she said, "When I look back on this school in 10 years or so I will remember all the teachers who believed in me when I couldn't find the strength or motivation to do it myself. I'll remember all the friendships and bonds I made the 13 years I was at Armorel. AHS I will love you forever and I'll forever cherish the memories I made here. Once a Tiger, Always a Tiger!" Congratulations McKenzie!
Senior Spotlight: Ally Jewell is the daughter of Anna and Jim Gifford and Justin Jewell. After high school she plans to attend ANC, complete the dental assisting program then complete dental hygiene school. From there Ally wants to move to Memphis to attend Concord where she will become a dental hygienist. She also plans to attend the University of Memphis to get a degree in business or somewhere in the business field just to always have something to fall back on. When asked how she feels about her senior year ending this way, Ally said, "I think it is kind of cool that there was a pandemic in the middle of my senior year. I am also sad that I will be missing so much. I already miss so much. I miss my friends, my favorite teachers, I honestly even miss waking up early. It's kind of hard to believe that I will never go back. It's almost time to schedule my college classes and that just sounds so weird to say. I honestly never thought I would be out of high school." When asked to describe senioritis Ally said, "senioritis is more dangerous than coronavirus is all I am going to say. It hit me out of nowhere. First couple of weeks at school I was doing so good, on top of my work getting things done, next thing I know I'm about a week behind with having no idea what I'm doing. Senior year really is a breeze if you take all of your harder classes as a younger student. I remember I worked my butt off 9-11th grade to make sure my senior year was as easy as could be." Congratulations Ally!
Michael Peterson is the son of Kenny and Crystal Peterson. After high school he plans to attend Arkansas State University to major in exercise science to work his way towards becoming an athletic trainer. When we asked Michael how he feels about his senior year ending this way he said, "Oh man where do I even start? This year I tried to come to school everyday because I knew my time in high school would come to an end before too long. None of us seniors thought it would be sooner rather than later though. There were so many "last" things we were supposed to experience. Such as our last class together, our last sporting event, our last trips, our last time eating in the cafeteria and so on. We are also missing out on our completers luncheon which I was really looking forward to. I would also like to thank all my teachers and classmates that allowed me to gain so many great memories I can keep with me for the rest of my life. Most importantly, I would like to thank Coach Miller. He didn't give up on our basketball team and he definitely didn't give up on me either. He helped me become the man I need to be and I am grateful for that." When asked what the highlight of his senior year has been he said, " It is very difficult to choose just one highlight from my senior year. There were so many significant things that happened throughout the school year such as, being one point away from a triple double against Delta C-7, getting all-conference in basketball, and always having very interesting debates at the lunch table with the boys. If I just had to choose one highlight it would be getting to leave every single Friday and go eat, walk around Walmart, play basketball, or just ride around. I am surely going to miss all of my classmates." Congratulations Michael!
Abby Kennedy is the daughter of Tony and Christie Kennedy and the sister of Ashton Kennedy. Abby plans to obtain a bachelor's degree in International Business and a master's degree in Business Administration. Beyond that she wishes to travel regularly as it has always been a passion of hers since she was young. Abby's thoughts about her senior year ending this year, "Senior year meant everything to me, and sadly all the high expectations that we all had were stripped from us. People always say, "You're going to miss high school and being a senior," but it's hard to miss something that I never got to fully finish. My senior year was normal and something that I always knew would fly by quickly, but be full of memories with people that I consider my family. I never would have imagined though that it would be cut off this quickly. I know I would give anything to sit in a room with my classmates again. Even though senior year didn't end the way we thought it would I'm still going to cherish every moment I got with my class." The highlight of Abby's senior year, "Winning the Patty Woody tournament would have to be the highlight of my senior year. That was the first time my basketball team had won a trophy and it will be something that I will always remember. Not only was it amazing that we had won, but the tournament was hosted in my father's high school where he graduated. Playing in his home town while he was there watching meant the world to me. I'm forever grateful for my team and everything we accomplished. Memories like that won't ever fade away." Congratulations Abby!

Senior Spotlight: Andrea Bermudez is the daughter of Maria and Ricardo Bermudez. After high school she plans to attend ANC to become an LPN to get a head start in knowing the field then go back to be an RN. Her thoughts about her senior year ending this way, "In all honesty, it is surreal. I finished my senior year without even knowing it. It hurts that it didn’t get to finish the way it did. The only way to get through it is knowing that we all still have a whole life ahead of us and I cannot wait!" When asked who inspires her, Andrea said, "I am inspired by my abuelito Cristobal. My abuelito passed away in 2014 and he was the most influential person in my life. He had a dream of making a restaurant business and I’m sure many people are familiar with what restaurant business that is. My family did not come from a wealthy background. He learned how to go through life working hard for his own and he worked hard to give me the life I have today. I loved him like no other and he was a great friend to have throughout my childhood. There was a lot of powdered donuts involved and a ton of car rides. I like to think he is watching over our family and is proud of the new accomplishments we have made. It feels just like yesterday I went over to visit and you could hear his loud voice throughout the whole house. I miss him dearly. Abuelito Cristobal inspired me to make something of myself and choose my own path, just like he did. I am proud to be his granddaughter and I am sure he is proud of me." Congratulations Andrea!
Senior Spotlight: C.J. Simmons is the son of Amanda Davis and the late Bryan Davis. He plans to attend a two year college and go straight into the workforce after high school. When asked how he feels about his senior year ending this way he said, "I hate that my senior year had to end this way. I feel as if life threw all of us a curve ball, and now we just have to adjust and overcome to make ourselves stronger and better for the future." C.J.'s advice for incoming freshmen, "Enjoy the little things. You need to enjoy what you have because it is not around for long. Time flies by faster than you think. So you need to live life in the moment and enjoy the times you have with your friends and family. Do not take the small things for granted." Congratulations C.J.!
Senior Spotlight: Hayleigh Peterson is the daughter of Kenny and Crystal Peterson. After high school she plans to become a dispatcher and work her way up to a police officer. Hayleigh is sad about her senior year ending this way and said, "We've been waiting so long to get to experience the end of senior year things like walking through the elementary in our caps and gowns, senior prom, and our high school graduation." Her advice for incoming freshmen is, "don't play around in your classes because this is when your classes count. Always make plans with friends. High school will be over in the blink of an eye." Congratulations Hayleigh!
Senior Spotlight: Gabrielle Mays is the daughter of Kenneth and Sherry Mays. She plans to attend ANC to obtain her Associates degree in Registered Nursing. After that, she plans to attend Arkansas State University or Murray State University to work toward her Bachelors degree. When asked how she feels about her senior year ending this way Gabrielle said, "Senior year has always been the year that I looked forward to since I was in 6th grade. Throughout all of the years, I have worked very hard to get the grades that I wanted and made many memories. Knowing that now I am a senior and I won't be able to finish the school year is very upsetting. If I would've known that my last day of school was coming so soon, I would've taken the time to remember my last moments in the hallway and with my friends in class. I have always been a strong person when it came to serious situations. The sudden ending of my senior year was something that hit me very differently. I didn't realize how much I would miss the small things like having conversations with my teachers, eating in the lunchroom, and even laughing hard on school trips. I will never get to experience anything like that again. Every year since I was younger, I watched the older students graduate and I got more and more excited for my day. Now I don't even know if I will have the moment of walking across the stage. I pray that no other senior class has to go through anything like this. I learned to never take what you have for granted because it can be gone in the blink of an eye. I am most grateful for the lessons that teachers taught me during my high school years. Not only did they provide information about how to do certain concepts, they also taught me unintentional lessons that I will always be able to benefit from. For instance, Mrs. Duren helped me learn to teach others how to do things instead of just giving them all of the answers. That way they will be able to learn as well. While I kept that in mind, I also learned better techniques when it came to studying in her class. I then began to use those tips throughout all of my other classes. In the end, I feel like the small things that the teachers have done for me went a long way. I would like to thank all of the staff at Armorel HIgh School for the help they provided during my last high school days. I also wouldn't have been able to do anything without the support of God and my family. I am truly grateful and I love all of my Class of 2020." Congratulations Gabrielle!
Senior Spotlight: Seth Follmer is the son of Jennifer and Chris Cook and Patrick and Michelle Follmer. After high school Seth plans to pursue a four year degree at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville for Industiral Engineering. When asked how he feels about his senior year ending this way Seth said, "It was definitely upsetting that it ended so early. I would have like know what day was my was in high school but thankfully its given me extra time to work and save up money for college. Also I never pass up the opportunity to be able to just sit at home." When asked to finish this sentence, "In 20 years I'm going to be...", Seth said, "content and happy, whatever that means to me in 20 years." Congratulations Seth!
Senior Spotlight: Drew Weld is the son of Andy and Jena Weld. After high school he plans to attend the University of Central Arkansas to major in professional writing. Drew would like to move somewhere out of Arkansas. When asked how he feels about his senior year ending this way he said, "It wasn't the ending I was expecting, and it might not have been the ideal way for the year to end for me and the rest of the seniors, but that doesn't change the fact that my senior year has been full of amazing memories that I will not soon forget. It was an amazing ride, I just wish I could've experienced the rest of it." Drew's advice for incoming freshmen, "Focus on what makes you happy, and surround yourself with other people you genuinely enjoy being around. Avoid any drama that isn't necessary, and don't obsess over your status in the eyes of others. It sounds cliche, but being yourself is the easiest way to make it through high school." Congratulations Drew!

Senior Spotlight: Alexis Bivens is the daughter of Mark and Carla Bivens. She plans to attend Arkansas State University to major in nursing after high school. When asked how she feels about her senior year ending this way she said, "I just wish it hadn't happened my senior year. It hurts knowing that we didn't get to say goodbye to the teachers we've grown close to. It hurts knowing that I didn't get to have the big last day of high school with the people I've grown up with. However, these things are going to be what makes graduation and prom so much more special to us seniors." The one memory Alexis said she will remember forever about her time at Armorel: "One thing I will always remember is how much our class acted like siblings. (Senior homecoming really tested our love for each other.) We all butted heads, but toward the end of the year, we realized that our time together was coming to an end. From arguing, to trying to spend every Friday after school together, I don't think anyone would change a thing." Congratulations Alexis!
Senior Spotlight: Allison Harris is the daughter of Brett and Stacey Harris. After high school she plans to attend Williams Baptist to pursue her business degree. When asked how she feels about her senior year ending this way she said, "It makes me sad knowing I won't ever get to see some of my favorite teachers again in the classroom and that me and my classmates will never have those memories of the last day of school together, but in the end what we are having to do is keeping everyone safe so I am just trying to make the best of it!" Allison's highlight of her senior year: "The highlight of my senior year has definitely been the people I have gotten to spend it with. My boyfriend, Quinn Crosskno, and my two best friends, Hannah Hopper and Alexis Bivens. They have made this one of my favorite and best years of high school so I am going to miss seeing them at school every single day." Congratulations Allison!
Quinn Crosskno is the son of Julie and Chris Crosskno. After high school he plans to attend Williams Baptist and play golf. When asked how he feels about his senior year ending this way he said, "Senior year being cut short is very depressing. Although, I am happy to do anything that makes the spread of this virus stop. Knowing that I will never get these last few months of senior year back is hard to think. I will never get to be back in a classroom with my best friends, my favorite teachers, or at Armorel High School. I will never get my senior year of baseball back. This virus cut many things short. I am heartbroken because of this, but I am ready for the next chapter of my life. God has a plan for all of us during these crazy times. Trust and believe in him. God knows what he is doing through all of this. Pray and continue letting him lead and guide in your life." The worst thing about being a senior: "There are many great things about being a senior. You are the oldest and the most special in the entire school. You are getting ready to move on from high school, attend college, and start your adult life. With all of these good things, there are many downsides, too. The worst thing has to be leaving behind all the memories and great friends. I have made many memories and friends at Armorel High School. All the long bus rides, the talks at the lunch table, eating before games, and the great times in the classroom will never be forgotten. All of my coaches, teachers, and all members of Armorel staff have made an impact on my life that I won’t forget. I want to especially thank Coach Brown, Coach Dobbins, and Coach Miller for the great advice they have given me and for never giving up on me. I want to thank Mr. Carmack and Mrs. Mac for all the funny stories, putting up with us, and making learning fun. I want to thank Ethan Bryant and Tanner Davis for always being there for me and for making this year great."

I already lost one year due to graduating early, and now I lost this year too. I am most grateful for being a part of an amazing school and having some of the best teachers I could ever ask for. Armorel always made me feel welcome no matter the circumstance. For that, I am incredibly grateful." Congratulations Kayla!
Senior Spotlight: Hannah Hopper is the daughter of Jeff and Andrea Hopper. After high school she plans to major in communication disorders at Arkansas State University to become a speech pathologist. When asked her thoughts on her senior year ending this way she said the following: "It is sad because we are all having to miss out on the things that we have been looking forward to our whole lives. All the school trips that I am used to going on during this time of year have been cancelled already, and I don’t get to have my last track season that I have been working towards for months. We are all just hoping we can still have prom and a graduation. One memory that I will remember forever about my time at Armorel was getting to go to FBLA nationals last summer with Alexis and Andrea. That was one of my favorite school trips. We placed fifth in the state in our competition, so we got to go to San Antonio, Texas to compete at nationals. While we were there, we got to go to Six Flags, tour The Alamo, and we stayed in a hotel looking over the Riverwalk. At the conference we got to meet people from all over the United States, and we even made friends with people from China and other countries. One of my favorite things about the trip was almost getting in trouble by the hotel staff and having to run back to the room." Congratulations Hannah!

It sucks not being able to play out my last high school baseball season and do all the fun activities that were planned for our senior class.

To your parents, continue to be the baby and take a lot of pictures. You never know what will happen to them. Also, be involved in everything." Congratulations Tanner!
Senior Spotlight: Briley Miller is the daughter of Shannon and Mandy Millier. After high school she plans to attend Arkansas Northeastern College for two years then transfer to Arkansas State University to attend their Physical Therapy program. Her thoughts about her senior year ending this way: "It hasn’t hit me yet that my senior year is over. I have been at Armorel since the third grade and have grown up with my class. It’s hard not seeing them everyday and knowing that i’ll never get to sit through another class meeting with them is upsetting. When asked what the highlight of her senior year is, Briley said, " The highlight of my senior year will have to be winning the Pattye Woody Tournament at South Pem. All of it was exciting from watching our student section go crazy, to going up and receiving the trophy, to celebrating to “We Are the Champions” out on the court. That night was definitely the highlight of my senior year."
Senior Spotlight: Ethan Bryant is the son of Nicole and Kenneth Warren and Brian and Tiffany Bryant. After high school he plans to work for Nucor. When asked how he feels about his senior year ending this way, Ethan said the following: " It's a double edged sword. I love not having to wake up until 2 p.m. everyday and not falling asleep till 6 or 7 a.m. every night, but not being able to sit at the lunchroom and tell jokes and laugh for 45 minutes straight or sit in Mrs. Speights class with CJ Tanner and Michael and get on her nerves for the whole class period everyday." The advice Ethan has for incoming freshmen is " Don't take highschool too seriously. Don't stress about the test coming up or trying to rush and finish the homework every night. It's one test and only one thing of homework stressing over it just makes it worse. That little grade for homework for the small 20 point test will not affect your grade in the long run so don't cry or pull your hair out trying to perfect every assignment." Congratulations Ethan!
Senior Spotlight: Kylee DeWitt is the daughter of Tracey DeWitt. After high school she plans to attend Arkansas Northeastern College part-time and work part-time. Kylee's thoughts about her senior year ending this way, "I'm sad about my senior year ending this way because the last day of senior year for anyone should be a day that is remembered. I do not remember my last day of my senior year and it breaks my heart. I don't get to go on any of my last school trips that I have looked forward to for years. I won't get to sit in the library with the people I have grown up with and just joke around and talk. I wish this year could have ended differently, but it's life and the class of 2020 will definitely be remembered." When asked what one person she was always happy to see, Kylee said the following, "I am always happy to see Mrs. Sally Baker. She has been around to support me in any way she can. She has helped me through the bad days in my life and makes sure I'm always okay. She's hugged me when I've had breakdowns and always makes sure that I know that she's always there for me if I need to talk, a snack, or just a hug. I am forever grateful for her and couldn't have made it through the past four years without her love and endless support." Congratulations Kylee!

Senior Spotlight: Madison Perez is the son of Shanea and Michael Massey. After high school he plans to attend ANC for two years to get his basics. After that, he plans to transfer to ASU to work towards a degree in athletic training. Madison's thoughts about his senior year ending this way: "I never thought in a million years that something like this would happen. We have worked so hard for the last twelve years for the end of our senior year to be stripped away from us. We had so much left to experience. I know the guys and I were really looking forward to the upcoming baseball season and for us to not even have a chance is really upsetting. I look back and I regret missing school all the time, but if i could go back and redo that I would. If I am being honest I do not even remember the last day of my senior year, and you are supposed to remember that. Anyways, I love all of my classmates and appreciate all of the help the teachers and faculty have done for us throughout the years and I hope that no other class will have to go through something like this." When asked about a moment he will never forget, he said the following: "I will never forget all of the baseball memories I have made with my teammates and coaches. Coach Brown and Coach Dobbs coached more than baseball. They coached us to be better men and how to carry ourselves, on and off the field. I am forever grateful for them and all of my teammates. I will never forget all of the hotel trips we had as well as the way we played during the postseason during my junior year. We have had some good runs as well as rough ones, but if there is one thing I have learned from Coach Brown and Coach Dobbs, it is not about how you fall, but it is about how you get up. I will miss these guys dearly and always have the uttermost respect for all of them. #14, out. Congratulations Madison!
