Communities In Schools (CIS) of the South Plains would like to invite you to
(next to 4 Corners Mart)
support one of the most prolific one-day tournaments of its kind in this area!
Dr. Jason Schroeder,
The 7th Annual Peace.Love.Mud Volleyball Tournament will be
held on Saturday, June 13th, 2015 at Buffalo Springs Lake!
This down and dirty tidal wave of fun-in-the-sun featured 114 eight to twelve
player co-ed teams and more than 300 spectators in 2014! The tournament’s
purpose is to serve as a platform to raise awareness about the issue of student
dropout and the efforts of CIS to remove academic and non-academic barriers
to education that often influence a student’s decision to leave school. The goal
for 2015 is 120 teams and to raise $70,000 which will go towards sustaining
current CIS programs and expanding to new districts across the South Plains
region.
Registration is currently OPEN. Return your completed
registration forms to: [email protected] or register
online at: http://www.cissouthplains.org/registration on or before the
registration deadline of Sunday, May 31st. For additional information,
please contact Monica J. Williams at (806) 368-8090.

program initiatives.

Shallowater’s UIL One Act
Play production of All the
King’s Men by Robert Penn
Warren will debut Tuesday
night, March 30 at 7PM
and again, April 6 at 7PM.
All the King’s Men is the
story of the rise and fall of
a political titan in the Deep
South during the 1930’s. It’s
loosely based on Governor
Huey Long, the infamous
governor of Louisiana. Willie Stark rises from hardscrabble poverty to become
governor of his state. All
the King’s Men is also the
story of Jack Burden, the
scion of one of the state’s
aristocratic dynasties, who
turns his back on his genteel upbringing and becomes
Willie Stark’s right-hand
man. It’s the story of a good,
but misguided man whom
power and money corrupt.
Directors are Cindy
Couch,
Leslie
Griffis,
and
Teresa
Kuehler.
Brodie Pinkerton is Jack
Burden, the political writer
who becomes Willie Stark’s,
played by Mac Olmsted,
right hand man.
Jack’s
mother is played by Ashlynn
Cunningham, and Judge
Irwin is played by Austin
Blount. Lucy Stark is Willlie’s wife and played by Payton Phillips. Sadie Burke
(Sydney Bevers) is the public relations’ woman who
is in love with Willie Stark.
Tiny Duffy, Jonah Nelson,
and Sugar Boy O’Shean,
Tristin Lain, are thugs and
bodyguards. Adam Stanton,
Tucker Nelson, and Anne
Stanton, Kadyn Kuehler,
are brother and sister and
longtime friends of Jack’s.
Others who help create the
world of 1930s Louisiana
are Andrew McGoogan, Attorney General Hugh Miller; Lily Littlepaugh, Maky
Haynes; Editor, Nathan Caballero; and Susan, Brooke
Williams. Stage managers
are Cheyanne Hamilton and
Amy Anderson; Lights are
Carly Talley, Riley Robbins, and Jonathan Casali;
Sound is Reagan Robbins.
Assistants to the director
are Kylie Robles and Kayla
Casali. Prop designers and
creators are Elijah Munden,
Cora Hogard, and Mia Ayala.
Come out and support the
SHS One Act Play production of All the King’s Men.
And Friendship Into Best Seller
Shallowater Elementary is
not only the first stepping
stone on the path of educational excellence for the students at Shallowater, but it is
also the place where Kindergarten and First Grade students become authors and illustrators in their own book!
Sheila Burt, Elementary Counselor, organized
guidance lessons with
Kindergarten and First
Grade classes that included
friendship, manners, being polite and kindness.
Upon hearing a story, the
classes brainstormed ideas
and wrote a book together
in each class. The students incorporated not only
the lesson, but they were
the author and illustrator.
The students wrote a
rough draft, final copy
and illustrated the pictures
and anxiously awaited for
the final copies to be delivered after sending the
books to the publisher.
The books were a BIG
hit when they were de-
livered and the students
and parents love them!
Class books are still available for purchase through
Shallowater
Elementary.

The SISD band program
is continuing to lead
students to reach their
upmost potential and
to strive for excellence.
On Wednesday, March
11 the Shallowater 7th

traveled to Coronado High School for
the UIL competition.
Both bands performed
front of three judges for
their concert, then in
front of a different set
of three judges for the
Sight-Reading portion
of the contest. During
this time, they have only
one opportunity to play a
piece of music that they
have never seen or heard
before. This tests their
music reading skills
for the judges to score.
The 7th Grade band
is conducted by Kyle
Billett and performed
three pieces including
“Honor Roll March”
by John Edmondson,
“Maesong” by William Owens, and “Pinnacle” by Rob Grice.
The 8th Grade band
is led by Tammy Summersgill and performed
“España Cañi” by Marquina Narro, “Mosswood Lullaby” by Brian
Beck, and “Üsküdar”
by Robert W. Smith
and Michael Story for
their three selections.
Both the 7th and 8th
Grade bands received a
division 1 from all six
judges, earning them
the

Intermediate Students Create Masterpieces Inspired By Classic Artists The
Grind Helping
Common “Grounds”
Pride Journalist * Dairrica Young
Shallowater Intermediate
Art teacher, Jennifer Crawford, developed a creative
hands-on project idea for
the 5th six weeks of school
for students ranging from
2nd through 4th Grade.
The project included
diving into and re-creating several different
forms of art during the
six weeks’ time frame.
Every week the students
learned about a new famous
artist and then created their
own masterpiece inspired
by the famous art piece.
The first week revolved
around Picasso’s artwork
entitled “Seated Woman.”
The second week they
learned about Pop Art by
Andy Warhol and continued learning about his
artwork to the third week.
The final week they
learned about Jackson
Pollock’s enormous drip
paintings, also known
as
action
paintings.
Throughout the lesson,
the students of Shallowater Intermediate School
learned more about art
and gained confidence
as artists themselves.

What better way to start
your day than with a
perfectly
brewed
hot
steaming cup of coffee?
After receiving a grant from
the Shallowater Education
Foundation, Tammy Blackburn and Tammy Roberts
have been working diligently with SHS student employees at Shallowater’s new
coffee bar, The Grind. The
duo states, “We appreciate
SEF and the grant we were
given for this project. We
hope to continue and add
to The Grind every year.”
On Tuesday, March 24,
a grand opening was held
in the SHS commons
area. The Grind is open
to the public, students,
and faculty throughout

the coffee bar entirely.
Goodwyn, Molina, and Bevers collaboratively stated,
“We have seen the coffee bar
bring more togetherness in
the mornings at SHS. It is a
positive contribution to SHS
and modernizes the school.”
They continue, “We are
excited about the opportunity to work at The
Grind. We feel that it is
teaching us job skills that
we will take with us when
we graduate from SHS.”
The student employees
completed
an
application, participated in an
interview process, and
each work two to three
shifts a week at The Grind.
