Jump Rope for Heart

Hey everyone!
Moss Street School successfully raised $1,075.15 this year for Jump Rope for Heart and the American Heart Association in it's fight to help end heart disease!  Congratulations to everyone who helped raise money for this event! Our top fund raisers were Levi Bailey in Ms. Exum's class and Daphnie Bailey in Mr. Evan's class. These students both raised $165 dollars a piece! Way to go kids! And as promised, the kids who raised at least $50 for Jump Rope for Heart will be able to throw a whipped cream pie at me on Field Day! We had ten kids reach this goal. They are as follows: Alexis Lawson, Levi Bailey, Anya Lea, Kadesha Carter, Tyler Jerue, Austin Tilley, Madison Heintz, Reginald Gorrell, Makayla Walker, and Daphnie Bailey. Congratulations to those students and everyone else who raised money and made this event such a great success!

Thanks again,

Dear students,

I sincerely hope that everyone had a fun, safe, and restful summer break and I look forward to seeing all of your smiling faces on August 15th. My summer was filled with excitement as well. I saw a tremendous return of my health/strength over the summer as I worked to regain what I'd lost last year while I was in the hospital. My daughter turned five and she is very excited about her first days of Kindergarten, as I know all of our little Moss Street Kindergartners are as well. And last but not least, I got engaged over the summer break to my girlfriend, Jeannie Taylor. With all of that being said, I am ready for another exciting, fun-filled year! So drink that water and lace up your tennis shoes because we're going to hit the ground running in P.E. this year!

Summer Message from Mr. Soyars

Wow! It has been awhile since I've updated my site. As many of you know, I became extremely ill during Easter break and had to spend several weeks in the hospital and did not return to work until May 31th. This was a trying time for me and my family but we've made it through and I am slowly on my way to recovery. I'd like to thank all of the teachers, parents, and students who called, visited me in the hospital, and/or sent cards/flowers while I was out. These gestures of kindness meant a great deal to me and I am very grateful to have so many people who care for me in my life. I also want to thank everyone who helped out with the planning of and running of Field Day. This event was a huge success, thanks to the efforts of those who helped with set-up while I was still at home recuperating. Being the end of the year, I hope that all my little ones have a wonderful summer and I look forward to seeing ya'll in August. Happy Summer break!!!!!
