Parents' Association News:
Your Mount Pisgah Parents' Association (MPPA) hosted Pancakes and Patriots on Tuesday, Jan. 23 at the Drum and it was a sweet success! We served free pancakes to over 200 people. It was an incredible turn out! By bringing our families together, we showered our Patriot Basketball teams with love and also spent $1,000 in our Patriot Shop. Giving back to our school feels so good!

Donna Shultz and Jennifer Raley, our MPPA Event Planners, did an outstanding job of pulling it together. They had awesome helpers too; thank you to our parent volunteers Tammy Wagner, Vanessa Greene and Christie Peden. Reveille Cafe provided the delicious food and excellent service.
Your MPPA is planning one last big event this school year. Save the date April 7 for our Patriot 5k and Fun Run with the theme "Tacky Prom". You won't want to miss it!
Your MPPA: uniting parents, giving back. It's what we do!
February Alumni Spotlight - Karli Barnett
Karli Barnett, Class of 2010
Karli Barnett ('10) is a television news anchor for the CBS affiliate 13WMAZ Eyewitness News in Macon. It is the top-rated rated station in Central Georgia, with a coverage area spanning more than 25 counties. Currently, she anchors Eyewitness News Morning from 5 - 7 a.m., provides CBS News TV and radio cut-ins throughout the morning, and then anchors Eyewitness News Midday at noon.
She started her career in 2014 right out of college as a Multimedia Journalist, or “one-man-band” reporter, where she filmed, wrote, and edited all of her own stories -- from breaking news, to local government reporting, to human-interest pieces. After a year, she was promoted to Weekend Evening anchor, and then again the following year as the Weekday Morning anchor.
A NOTE FROM NURSE MITNICK:
As the school nurse, I wanted to reach out to each of our parents. Understandably, there is a growing concern among families regarding this year’s flu. There have been lots of questions regarding prevention and the policy as to when a student is allowed to return to school if they do become ill.
School policy reads that a child diagnosed with the flu can return to school when they have been fever free for 24 hours, without any medications. However, with the growing concern on media and among families I would ask each parent to err on the side of caution and keep their child out of school until they are also symptom-free for a full day before returning. ( Other symptoms may include -- but aren’t limited to -- fatigue, body aches, chills, nausea, night sweats, upset stomach.)
I am working to make sure we minimize the spread of the flu on our campus. I do want parents to feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns regarding your individual child.
Hand-washing is key in slowing the spread of the flu virus. We will be encouraging this both at school and at home. If you think you may be sick, stay home from work or school and get evaluated by your physician. Adequate hydration is also important so remember to fill those water bottles!
