Last night I enjoyed dinner, (there is a great program called Supper on Site in the district that provides evening meals for athletes and after school clubs), with the South Atlanta High School football team and cheer squad, before hitting the field for a late afternoon practice. The players had a great meal of spaghetti, broccoli and a multi-grain roll with a fruit cup.
Board members Eshe’ Collins and Matt Westmoreland joined me on the field with the players for an intense workout. Board member Cynthia Briscoe Brown worked with the cheerleaders during yesterday’s tryouts, she says she was never a cheerleader in high school so participating yesterday with our students was really a treat for her. The South Atlanta Hornets are in Region 4-AAA football team invited me to hang out during today’s practice. They have 12 seniors returning and they are working hard for an improved season.
This is Kevin Hill’s third season as the head football coach. Thanks for having me you guys! This was a big finish to a great first day.
Today we kick things off at Scott Elementary where we will enjoy breakfast with our students.
