YAI Interact
The YAI Interact is partnering with Distric 6780 for the purpose of collecting monetary donations for the victims of the East Tennessee wildfires. Interact members will be coming around to all 1st block classes on Friday to take up donations. Our goal is for everyone to give a $1. All donations will be sent directly to the relief efforts and are greatly appreciated.

YAI Choir
YAI Choir attended the Nashville Christmas Parade on Saturday, December 3rd. They sung a "Frosty the Snowman Medley" along with several other choirs from around Tennessee and Kentucky. The parade was televised live and will also be shown in over 200 cities throught the month of December.

Piano Recital
The fall semester piano recital took place on monday evening, December 5. Kudos to Mr. Josh Allen on a job well done.

Math Quilt
Students from Mr. Brady's and Mrs. Wilson's Geometry classes used their knowledge of symmetry and/or constructions to design their quilt blocks. Most quilt blocks were designed by a team of two students; however, there were several blocks that were designed by individuals. The project began in the last week of September, and the final block designs were turned in by the third week of October. The quilt blocks hung in Mr. Brady's and Mrs. Wilson's classrooms until the Tuesday before Thanksgiving break. The quilt top was assembled over the break. There are eighty blocks in this quilt top, and two more blocks will be stitched to the back of the quilt with the students' signatures from all the classes once it has been quilted. Thank you to all the students' hard work and to Becky Stowers in Clark Range who will be quilting this for free.

Every day is a great day to be a Dragon!
