Daniel Jackson Phillips and Tatton Waldon will be representing Alcorn County and the Kossuth Band by competing in the Lions Club International virtual convention. They will also enjoy a trip to Florida where they will visit Disney World and Universal Studios this summer. Since 1950, the Mississippi Lions All-State Band has competed in International competitions around the globe. They have been named International Champions since 2003 with the exception of the two years in which they did not attend. This year, the band will not travel to Canada due to safety concerns. The Mississippi All-State Band is comprised of the best high school musicians in the state. There is a two-step process for being selected. The students must try out and receive a call back, then tryout again to have a chance to be selected for the band. This makes the second year the Phillips and Waldon have achieved this honor. The band is under the direction of Jeff Cannon and assistant Mickey Mangum.
Congratulations to the Kossuth Aggie Band, who performed in the Mississippi State Evaluations for Concert Band on March 3 at Oxford High School. The band performed their selections "Danse Carnivale" by Randall Standridge and "Counterbalance" by Todd Stalter to the judges. The band scored all superior ratings by all three judges and was only one of two 3A bands in the state to receive all superiors. The bands in Mississippi high schools did not get to compete in state competition during marching season and were also not allowed to compete in the sight-reading portion either. The Aggie Band was proud to represent our community on the state level and to bring home this honor once again.
It is getting close to registration time for all of our Alcorn Schools. As we approach the new school year, we want to remind all incoming seventh grade parents that an updated DTaP immunization record (Form 121) must be on file. If you haven’t taken care of the DTaP, then go ahead and get them scheduled so you can have that out of the way! These shots can be given at the local health department. For further information about where to go and how to schedule these shots visit the Mississippi Department of Health website: https://msdh.ms.gov/msdhsite/_static/14,8569,71.html or contact the Alcorn County Health Department at (662) 287-6121. For any questions regarding school registration, you may contact your school office and speak to the counselor. Alcorn School District is looking forward to a great upcoming 2021-2022 school year!

This afternoon, Gov. Tate Reeves announced that Mississippi's public school buildings will remain closed through the end of this semester, though he emphasized that learning will continue. Gov. Reeves acknowledged the amazing work of teachers, school leaders, bus drivers, cafeteria workers, and other staff - as well as parents - to ensure that children avoid falling behind. It is important that students keep practicing the skills they learned before the COVID-19 outbreak and, to every extent possible, that they continue to make academic progress. Our staff is working hard to ensure that students have the resources they need to be prepared to be successful. We are happy to announce that our feeding program will start back Monday, April 20th. At this time, the feeding program will follow the same schedule, Mondays and Wednesdays, as we did before the shelter-in-place began. Another set of learning packets will be ready to go out soon. Please be looking for a message from your school with details by the end of the week.
