See You At The Pole

Monday was senior night for the High School Lady Wildcats softball team. They took on the Seiling Lady Wildcats after the seniors were honored. The girls ended up coming up short and losing 8-12. While the HS was playing at home, the JH girls traveled to Canadian, TX to play. They lost 5-4. 

Tuesday the Arnett Junior and Senior students spent the morning at Southwestern Oklahoma State University’s area wide College Fair. There were over 35 tables with colleges/programs represented as options for these students to pursue after graduation. Students were able to talk with these colleges and gather information to help them with future decisions. 

This past Wednesday was See You at the Pole. See You at the Pole™ is a global day of student prayer. This event began in 1990 with only ten students praying at their school. Now decades later, millions of students gather and pray on their campuses on the fourth Wednesday in September. See You at the Pole™ is simply a prayer rally where students meet at the school flagpole before school to lift up their friends, families, teachers, school, and nation to God. See You at the Pole™ is a student-initiated, student-organized, and student-led event. After praying, the students were served breakfast made by our Youth Pastor and helpers, Ross & Emily Royal, Kaleb & LynnAnne McDonald, and Clayton & Alison Kincannon. Thank you for your time and effort provided to help make this successful.

Thursday the girls traveled to Dover for the regional softball tournament. They faced off with Dover for the first game. They beat them 24-3. Later that evening, the Lady Wildcats took on Lookeba-Sickles and won 3-0. This advanced them to Friday where they took on Lookeba Sickles again. The girls came ready to play and won 8-3. They will play in the state tournament on Thursday, Oct.5. There will be a send off supper on Tuesday evening to congratulate the girls on their achievement. Donations will be taken to help cover costs of their trip. 

In Mrs. Wheeler’s reading class, the students have been working on book reports. This report they had to design their own T-shirt to go along with the book. They each learned how to create a design to cut out and press onto their shirt. 

Saturday several students from different clubs were busy helping with rodeo events. A-Town TV started off the morning bright and with the 5K. They had close to 60 participants. Ryan Elder won the student division. Braden Turner won the adult male division, and Jenni Clark won the adult female division. The Beta Club was busy with many different activities. For the 3v3 Basketball tournament, five teams entered. The Sant’Anna family, the Brazilian Ballers, won the tournament. After the basketball tournament, the kids games and the cornhole tournament were going on around the courthouse lawn, along with many shopping booths. Kaleb McDonald and Kyle Stevens won the cornhole tournament, and Brayden Tibbett and Nicolas Sant’Anna came in 2nd. For the Beta peach cobbler and ice cream contest, Kayla Mann won best cobbler, Kathy Holloway won best ice cream.

 On Sunday, the Beta Club was back at it helping our community. They helped serve alongside the Kiwanis Club with the Kids’ Day. Beta members judged the parade categories, led the parade, and helped with the races. 



The Lady Wildcats won regionals and punched their ticket to state!

There were almost 60 5K participants!
