Junior cheer- leaders are Debts Weems, NancY Smith, Anita Garig, Myrna Reynolds, and Angels Wheeler. Our Varsity team had another victory last Friday night when they traveled to Thomas Jeffer- son in Natchez. There they de- feated the Eagles 19-0. The Pep Squad, Pore Pom Girls and .many patrons were on hand to cheer ottr boys on to their vic- tory. The Pom Pom Girls are grateful to Mr. Billy Adams for providing music for their half- time performance. Next Friday night our Varsity team wlll host the Rebels of Amite School Corporation.

Mr. Danny Myers, Mr. Bill Hurst. and Mr. Mike Mullins. PTC President Hollis Kntghton announced that the group would as usual supply teachers with needed classroom materials and equipment. It was decided to order right away sev- eral mats for the tumbllng el.asses to use in PE and a new fireproof ,filing cabinet to be used for storing school ecords. It was also decided that the PTC would support the commu- nity effort to bring the Jackson Mini Symphony to Centreville in the sprlng, All of us appreciate the efforts our parents .and teachers make .to keep Cenbre- ville Academy a fully accredited and well-equipped school. Last Wednesday the Senior Class was in charge of Assembly with David McKey, class presi- dent presiding. Jerry Ivey op- ened the program with a scrip- ture reading and prayer. After leading the student body in a pledge of allegiance to the American flag, Bob Bankston discussed .the history and pur- pose of Constitution Week. His talk was especially appropriate because Constitution Week has been observed nationally during the week of September 17-23 since 1956. The clas, accompa- nied at the piano by Susan Scott, a senior, sang ,the popular song "Day by Day." The seniors completed the program with a short, ,but meaningful, skit en- titled "Who's Got the Key to Our School Spirit?" The Studen Council has an- nounced the results of student body elections last week. Bob Bankson was elected president and Stoney Loftin was elected vice -president. Last week he Beta Club par- ticipated in the national organi- zation% ann'ual survey of high school students. They submitted questionnaires to all Juniors, who filled in the requested in- formation regarding vocational interests, college preferences and activities participations. These surveys are made up for the Departments of Education and Approved Educational In- stitutions and are not a corn- mercia,1 undertaking. The Seniors were excited Monday when their portrait proofs came in earlier in the school year than they usually do. Seniors think now they'll get their finished pictures .back before Christmas. It seems hardly possible that six-weeks tests are already upon us. They'll be Thursday and Friday of this week. The Sixth Grade welcomed new student hls week. He is Jimmy Newcomb from Norwood. His sister Linda is in the Eighth Grade. Our elementary school balle- rinas are enjoying .dancing les- sons given by Mrs. Sandy Home.
