Engineering Students Meet with Surveyors

Several of Ms. Tami Philyaw’s second and third year engineering students went to downtown El Dorado to meet with Courtney Paulus with Ball and Paulus Surveyors to work on resolving the flooding issues in one of the high school buildings.  Students were also accompanied by Superintendent John Gross.

Thank you to community partners like Courtney Paulus for supporting the students in the Smackover-Norphlet School District!

Deck the Halls

The Smackover High School Student Council recently held a door decorating contest. Each teacher had their second period class decorate his or her door.

The winning doors were:

  • First place – Mrs. Kerri Briggs and Mrs. Keitha Clark for their Gingerbread neighborhood doors.
  • Second place – Mrs. Connie Bridges’s Snow Man door
  • Third place – Coach Sonia Barker’s tennis themed door.

New Mentoring Program to Begin!

The Smackover-Norphlet School District is in the process of creating a new mentoring/volunteer program for people in our community who would like to support the students in our school.
