Challenged Accepted

Challenged Accepted

by Taylor Brown   The Prowl News

Along with the new freshman faces at the Highschool, a few more changes were brought along with the new year.  Because of our unfortunate circumstances dealing with the Coronavirus, many things that have become a staple here at AHS have been pushed to the side.  Despite the many changes, the teachers’ willingness to help and dedication to their jobs has never waivered.

A New Face at AHS  

A New Face at AHS  

by Ashlyn Black  The Prowl News

Although COVID-19 affected many of our activities, it has not hindered us from having a student teacher here at Amory High School.  Bailey Gillentine is interning here at AHS from Mississippi State University.  When picking which school she would want to intern at, Ms. Gillentine did not hesitate to have Amory as her top pick; “I got to pick my top three schools and Amory was my number one.”  Gillentine says her favorite part of AHS is how much it differs from surrounding schools.

Virtual Wednesdays

Virtual Wednesdays

By Gracie Wright  The Prowl News

As many of you know, Amory School District implemented virtual Wednesdays into students’ schedules for the 2020-21 school year.  Every Wednesday, traditional students have the privilege of working from home for the day.  These are days in which students can use as much or as little time they need to complete their schoolwork.  For me, it is a day to rewind.

Food For Thought

Food For Thought

By Ally Thompson  The Prowl News

“There’s pizza for breakfast, Miss Thompson!” Ms. Chambers, a teacher at Amory High School, exclaimed as I walked to my first period class. “Go get you some pizza! It’s free!”

Without another word, I entered the cafeteria (as any sane person should do if there is free pizza inside). The lunch ladies smiled from behind their masks and pointed to the styrofoam trays of food in front of me.

A New Normal

By Emma Kate Wright   The Prowl News

 Homecoming week at Amory High School looked a little different this year.  Just as looks can be deceiving, so was this week as students were initially disappointed when learning of various changes being made to the normal routine of homecoming parades and pep rallies.  As students showed up to school on Monday, it was apparent that most students had the same mindset of making the best out of their unconventional week.
