Fishing Tournament Success!

Arkansas Bassmasters High School Series State Championship Tournament was a two day fishing tournament held on Lake Ouachita April 14-15 for those teams who have competed in all Bassmaster High School tournaments during the season and qualified to participate.

After the first day of competition, David Martin and Trey Darden, student-anglers on the Smackover High School Bass Fishing Team were on top with their 5 fish limit totaling 17.26 pounds.  There were 30 boats entered in the tournament from across the state.

The second day proved more challenging for everyone with much colder temperatures and high winds.  The Martin/Darden team caught 11.62 pounds for a 2 day total of 28.88 pounds and garnered them 3rd place overall in the Bassmasters High School State Championship receiving $250, Lew’s reels and other prizes.  JD Martin was the boat captain for the two student-anglers.

Another Smackover High School student-angler team, who qualified to participate in the state championship was Ethan Warren and Robert Dixon.  They also made a strong showing with a 2 day total of 18.42 pounds.


2018-2019 Immunization Information

Parents, just a friendly reminder to update your child’s immunizations before the 2018-2019 school year, and bring a copy of the updated immunizations to the school as well!  Students must have up to date immunizations before entering school, and it’s not too early to start getting them now!  Some of the times immunizations are due are as follows.
  • Students who will be turning 11 on or before September 1, 2018, are required to have a Tdap (Tetanus, Diptheria, Pertussis) immunization before school starts. If your child is already 11 or older and does not have this immunization, it is still required.
  • Students who will be entering the 7th grade must have a MCV (meningitis) vaccine before school starts.
  • Students turning 16 on or before September 1, 2018 must have a MCV (meningitis) vaccine as well, even if you have already received one.
  • Student’s entering school for the first time should have their immunizations reviewed by the school nurse to ensure compliance.
