Student News

Agriculture classes find new uses for old bleachers


The John S. Battle Agriculture class taught by Mr. Jesse Morris has been busy taking orders and constructing projects from the reclaimed wood of the old bleachers that were recently removed from the gym.  The classes have designed several creations that will be displayed around the school.  They have built flower boxes and benches for the entrance of the school.  The bleachers will live on in some capacity at JSB.  If you are alumni of John S. Battle and would like a piece of memorabilia from the school, this would be an excellent opportunity to place an order.  You can contact Mr. Morris at 276. 642.5326 if you are interested.


Working Together


The John S. Battle Business Department in conjunction with the Athletic Department worked together to design and make shirts for the boys and girls soccer teams to wear in honor of Coach Perrigan for the annual FOTSS Benefit Game.  Both teams played Gate City and the proceeds went to the Sunnyside Scholarship fund, which was over $1,200.   The Sunnyside Scholarship is awarded to a senior athlete that plays as honoring God.
