Port St. Joe High School

Mrs. Comforter’s guitar students got a taste of the world of professional music last Friday when they had the opportunity to attend a Songwriting Workshop by Hits and Grins. It was an amazing opportunity for her budding musicians to talk to professionals in a comfortable setting. A special thank you goes out to all teachers who graciously dismissed their students to attend this extremely educational workshop.

Good luck to our Volleyball team as they enter district play this week in Blountstown and the Cross Country teams that will compete in district here in Port St. Joe on Oct. 29. Go Tiger Sharks.

Shark Football is on the roll. With a 7-0 win over FAMU High at home last Friday, the team travels to West Gadsden this Thursday at 7:30 p.m. ET. Go Tiger Sharks.

DIG PINK- Thank you to all who participated in the Dig Pink event this year. We are still receiving donations for breast cancer research and hope to have a total amount that has been contributed in next week’s Shark Talk. We did sell 93 Dig Pink shirts this year. Again, as always, thank you to Gulf County for supporting such an important cause.

 Girls’ soccer kicks off this week with a Jamboree at home this Friday and Saturday. Good luck as our Soccer seasons start up. Can basketball be far behind?

If you haven’t visited our Commons Area recently, you are in for a surprise. Along with new flat screen televisions showing important current events programming and news during our lunch periods, the area is decorated with banners from colleges attended by our faculty and staff.

These “School Colors” provide our students a reminder of their long term goal of a college degree, and maybe just a little Alumni Pride. Additionally, our snack line has been converted into a lunch line called the Shark Hole where students who don’t feel like a school lunch can partake in delicacies such as Hamburgers, Egg Rolls, Chicken Nuggets and much, much more.

Parents make sure you look for nine-week Progress Reports that will be sent home on Friday.
