During halftime at the Ole Miss - Arkansas football game on October 9, the Ole Miss Handband performed the National Anthem using the American Sign Language. The members of the band have worked hard to perfect their skills and perform, not only during ball games, but also at community events in Oxford and on campus.

One of the members is Burgin McClellan from Philadelphia who has been a member for several years. She loves being a part of the band and enjoys contributing to Ole Miss and the community. Her parents are Randy and Robin Tolbert McClellan.

Thursday, October 21st marked the 50th day of Kindergarten for the students at Neshoba Central Elementary School.  The children celebrated with a video of what a day in the life of a child born in the 50's might have been like. The girls wore poodle skirts, pony tails tied with scarves, and even some bobby socks, and many of the boys wore jeans and black leather jackets over white T-shirts. They were so cute.

They traveled back in time to enjoy some of the fun that kids had then such as a Sock Hop where they danced and hula hooped, followed by a Coke float at the Soda Shop. Everyone went to another teacher's room where a backdrop was set up for individual pictures which will go home in their scrapbooks. It was a memorable day!
