Many of my students read If I Stay by Gayle Forman this year and LOVED it. Just wanted to share that the book is being made into a movie. Check out Gayle Forman’s website for more information about casting, scripts, and the connection to the TV show Nashville. And just to make this post pretty, I’ll share that this guy has been suggested to play Adam:
Could this be Adam?
Who would you suggest play this role?
Students at SWA are collecting treats and toiletries to donate to two soldiers we’ve adopted. The tutors and their little friends wrote letters and made cards to add to the packages. It’s fun to show our appreciation to those who do so much for our country!

Motlow Community College hosted our juniors and seniors for lunch and an informative session concerning options after high school. The students asked great questions and left inspired…ready to fill out financial aid forms and make plans for life after high school.

Service Learning Class, Jan. 2013
In Black History House’s Freestyle Gallery, some of the city’s top freestyle artists led by Rashad “thaPoet” Rayford will take prompts from the audience and weave them into powerful messages about the past and future. Younger poets and emcees will join these leading artists to create a dynamic, improvised performance. Freestyle is the art of creating poetry and rap on the spot in response to prompts or in response to lines by other poets and rappers. Sponsored by our friends at Southern Word.
