Whats happening at QSD

QLE field day
Field day is a QLE tradition. This friendly competition encourages physical fitness while allowing kids to have structured fun and games. Teachers rallied their students to victory over other classes, and many parents and grandparents came out to enjoy seeing their student compete. This week QLE students will participate in water day and the AR parade. (photos by Slater Adams and Gabe Jolly)

QHS Chorus lifted their voices in a spring concert Tuesday night. The crowd enjoyed rousing renditions of “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” “Until I Reach My Home,” ” What a Wonderful World,” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Director Robby Daniels recognized chorus seniors and gave out section awards for sopranos, altos, tenors, and basses. The chorus closed their concert with “Beautiful Savior.”
QJH Panther Singers made beautiful music Tuesday night. The 6th grade chorus sang “Keep Your Hand on that Plow;” the 7th & 8th grade singers sang “Ave Verum Corpus;” and the Panther Singers sang “The Storm is Passing Over,” and “Here Comes the Sun.” Chorus Director Mrs Carrie Owens recognized students who competed in MS Junior High Honor Choir and students in the ‘Three Year Club.’ These students have been in JH Chorus for all three years.
2nd grade SWAT
QLE students are showing off their Latin skills in Mrs. Chrissy Kelly’s class! Second grade SWAT students performed songs and dialogue to show off their knowledge of Latin in a performance entitled ‘Loving Latin’ Tuesday at QLE. Parents, community, and students came out to enjoy the show!
2nd blessing box
QUE SWAT students are giving back to the community!  A second Blessing Box was dedicated on Wednesday outside of the Quitman Police Department. The first box is located at the Quitman Public Library and was dedicated in January 2022. Many people came together to make this community service project possible – SWAT students who fundraised to help provide the supplies to build it and donated the first cans of food, SWAT teacher Mrs. Elizabeth Fisher, Superintendent Dr. Minnie Dace, Mr. Howard Crocker from the Building Supply Store who donated the posts, and Mitchell Kelly and Carol Rhodes who constructed the box. A Blessing Box is a box that contains donated non-perishable food. Anyone in need may take an item(s) from this box as a blessing from our students and community. Anyone may donate items as well to help bless others. The sign on the Blessing Box says “Take what you need and leave what you can.”
